Pros:
You can read a lot of reviews for similar cars. So I don't go to details for the pros. I like very much this car. This is my first RC car. I supposedly bought it for my son. But I play with it more often than him.
You get a lot of thing for the price. I disassembled the car. It is amazing that you can get so much for so little.
Cons:
I only used rechargeable batteries for the control.
The car don't charge well from them. It is only charging for 20-30 sec. I have to reconnect the car to charge it longer. So I ended up building an adapter to my intelligent battery charger. I tested the car battery. The result is: 1,38V and 45mA measured capacity. Not that bad. I can fully charge the car this way.
Other:
It is a shame that my copy is not working as supposed, but I liked tinkering with it. I'm going to buy more with another frequency, if I discover a completely flat surface where I can race with others.
Bottomline:
It is a good starting point if you want to build something from from its parts. It is very cheap. Mechanically it will not last for ever.
