I was lookng for a birthday RC Toy for my grandson. Something other than video games. I wasn’t really sure what I was looking for in the begining. Radio Controled cars, boats just didn’t seem to be the thing. Not interactive enough to play with his friends. When I stumbled across these R/C Tanks I started to get excited. I read the reviews and the price was right so I ordered the tanks.
In a couple of days Fedex truck delivered the package from Amazon. I was impressed. Vey well build. I took the tanks out the package, charges the battteries and installed and tried them out. That’s where the fun began. My brother was over (we both 65+ years old) and we started to play with the tanks.
Being an US Army Vietnam Vet let the attack begin. My brother and I played for a fun filled half hour or so. It was great. The tanks make realistic sound, engine running, cannon fire and machine gun fire. When you fire the cannon the tank recoils from the cannon fire and you must position your tank and turret to line up on your target for your next shot. Also if you aim is right and you hit the other tank, that tank simulates being hit and you must reset up to aim and at the other tank again
Then the question begins. Should we give these tanks to my grandson or be selfish and keep them for ourselfs? Ok, you know the answer. Rechages the batteries and put everything back into the box and gift wrapped it and give to my grandson.
My grandson opened his birthday gift and could not beleive what Grandpa got him. He loves it. So did all my other four grandkids who were there. I didn’t get to play with the tanks that day but my grandkids sure did.
It’s been a month since we got them. The tanks are still in great shape and being used often. I even got some time playing Army Tanks with my grandson, finally!
Just a few things. Do Not Run Tanks on Carpet. The tank tracks will come off. Easy enough to put back on. Second thing is those little tiny screws that hold the battery lid close on the tank and R/C controller. Very easy to lose. Good thing the battery lids will stay closed without the screws.
