    Great Beginner Truck

    Very satisfied with Maisto's product, it far exceeded my expectations for the price and I will look for this brand in the future. Well-made, and really neat. It has full-function shocks, twisting axles, and soft tires that let it live up to its name. This was my son's (7 yrs old) first RC truck. It's slow enough that he has no trouble controlling it, and fast enough to keep things interesting. It is a rock crawler, so the gearing is low, and it has no trouble going up steep inclines or "crawling" over obstacles nearly as large as the truck itself. (It keeps me entertained just trying to find things for it to run over). Also it runs well over the manual's predicted 45 minute run time on the 6 AA batteries it requires. Be sure to install the included antenna tube (makes the truck antenna stand up straight) it more than doubles the range of the transmitter.
    Tearin' up the yard. :)


    For my grandson's birthday. He immediately took it outside and had it climbing all over hills and rocks. Then he brought it inside and built an obstacle course. Don't let the age group throw you off! My grandson is 14! His 8 year old sister patiently awaited her turn, and wants one for Christmas! No complaints here. Site to store with a great sale price. Went back for a second one tho and price had gone back up!

    Incredibly awesome for little money.

    This car is better than most cars at twice the price. This car is good for outdoor or indoor use. It has a good turn radius. It is fairly fast, but not too fast for indoors. Great for a cheap entry level RC. It has enough torque to go through any grass climb rocks and a small curbs it can even climb up a few stairs. It uses six AA batteries, which is better than the cheap battery packs that come with most of the low end RC's, which only have enough charge to play for an hour or so then require several hours to charge, and after about a year the pack dies and you have a useless car. I use rechargeable batteries that cost about $1-$2 each and last for days of play. We have had it for 6 months and it is still great, no problems. Also I must add that the suspension on this thing is great. It climbs everything you can speed right over a 2x4 without slowing down. It can climb over rocks, a 4" log and I have even got up a 6" curb. Oh, and my 10 year old son that got it for Christmas likes it to.

    Great toy for a super price!

    This thing is loads of fun. Everyone wants to play with it! We bought it for our 4 year old grandson, as he saw a different one and wanted a remote control truck. I read the reviews of the one he wanted and found it was junk compared to this Maisto truck. So, after deciding to double the investment and get him something that will actually run on multiple surfaces, we headed to the not so local Walmart - our local one was out of stock. But, it was only a 10 mile drive to the next town, and we are glad we did because there are various bodies you can get. On looked like a car atop the monster truck wheels, and the kids wanted a real truck. We found a nice grey Ford, which was perfect! He loves his toy and is super protective over it. He even mastered the channel switching! We may even get one for grandpa to play with as this thing really is fun. I has been about a month now and it is still going strong, so I expect it will last for a while.

    Most Popular Gift for 10-Year Old Grandson

    I purchased the Maisto Tech Crawler Radio-Controlled Vehicle for my 10-year old grandson's birthday in December. My gift was the hit of the birthday party! I also purchased a set of rechargeable batteries and the battery charger because I know these vehicles can consume a lot of energy. If I was to do it again I would have made sure the batteries were all charged so he could use the car right out of the box, but I didn't so he had to wait while the batteries charged overnight. I bought a few radio-controlled vehicles for birthday and Christmas gifts and although I the box clearly states how many batteries are required I confused this one with another one I bought and so I didn't get enough batteries - this takes 6 AA for the vehicle and 3 AAA for the hand-held remote. Once the batteries were available and charged my grandson was able to play with the toy and everyone in the house waited for their turn to play! This toy was a good choice for a ten-year old boy. I also purchased the extended warranty for an extra $3 which gives him a 2-year replacement guarantee -just in case he's a little rough on it.

    The best I can find, without breaking the bank.

    pro: The only one I can find that can run on grass, but won't break my bank. This one is 4x4 suspension, wich makes it crawl over objects, and run over grass. It runs fast too. I was worried it would be slow, but that's not ture. I just figured out that only 4x4 suspension can run on grass, others, even with suspention, won't work. Hope this can save you some time. The 4 yr old birthday kid loves it, I don't know why it's marked for 8+ con: The descriptions on web sites are not in details. I would have bought this first, if I knew it can run on grass fast and a 4 yr birthday kid is old enough to enjoy it. Wasted me a lot of time searching it.

    Great value!

    This little truck works great! It's faster than I thought it would be, rock crawlers usually move pretty slow. It has 4 wheel drive and really flexible suspension, similar to my 1/10th scale rock crawler. My daughter asked for this for Christmas so we could drive rock crawlers together. I was surprised when I put the batteries in it Christmas morning and was able to easily crawl over boxes and stacks of magazines. This little truck is a lot of fun for the money. The down side is that it doesn't steer well, which is to be expected since it doesn't have differentials. The other thing I don't really like is that it only has one speed forward and reverse. The motor is on when you pull the trigger and off when you don't. That's it. Other than that, it's a great toy for the price point and tons of fun!

    6 year old Loves it.

    Bought this for my 6 year old son. He loves it. Its not erratic or too fast for him to control. So with that said it is good for indoor and outdoor use. Battery life "which you supply" seems to be pretty good. He has used it outside in the snow and so far seems to be fine with that. Bought the replacement warranty for 4 dollars. Wal Mart will replace it in store up to three months after that you deal with the company. We'll see how that goes but for 4 dollars whatever. So far I'm impressed and he is happy which is good enough for me.

    Fantastic toy grade RC truck!

    This RC Crawler is everything that I was looking for in an RC toy truck. It was able to drive over all the terrain in my yard, grass, dirt, sand, and rocks, even some pretty big tree roots. The batteries outlasted my kids interest in driving it around. I purchased two and have only one minor gripe, the steering on one seems to be less responsive than the other. The speed is not too fast for my kids to control and for just over $30 you can't beat the value.
