Was Fun
This New Bright Radio Control Dune Rebel comes with the Vehicle, a Transmitter & 2 AA Batteries, Body Pins (4), a Battery Charger & a Battery Pack (for the Vehicle), as well as an Owner's Manual. I appreciate the fact that all batteries are included and the only thing you need to do – is Charge the Battery Pack – Then you are ready to go. If this is a Gift, you may want to Charge the Battery Pack beforehand. The gift receiver will probably appreciate it. When I removed everything from the box, I plugged in the Battery Pack for 1 to 1.5 minutes, as instructed. (In the picture, the battery pack is green & the battery charger is black just below the Dune Rebel). I had never used a remote transmitter control for a vehicle like this. So I was amazed at how quickly this Dun Rebel would stop, go forward or backward. I did have to get used to the knob to turn the wheels though, as this is definitely a 2-handed transmitter – if you want to turn as the Dune Rebel goes forward or backward. Now I understand why so many kids (young & young at heart) like playing with this.

Disappointing
Today I am writing a review for the New Bright 1:12 Radio Control 9.6v Pro Dune Rebel. I received this item free, in exchange for my unbiassed opinion of the product. I am a child at heart, my family has owned radio controled vehicles before. I was excitedly looking forward to getting this item. The toy, while in the box, looked like it was going to be loads of fun, like remotes we have had before. The box boasts a 'high impact body', and the rechargable batteries. Once opened, the body is not really very sturdy. Once opening the instruction booklet, I was even more disappointed. It warns to not run vehicle into hard objects. While most people would not intentionally try to crash it, accidents like running into a baseboard do happen. Also, a very disappointing fact, that the box doesn't reveal, is found in the instruction booklet. The body is held on by 2 flimsy cotter pins (a few replacement ones are included). Also, the playtime is limited to only 12 minutes before a reharge is needed. The battery recharging takes 1 - 1 1/2 hours, and adding to that charge time is allowing the cooling down of the battery pack and batteries before putting them back into the toy. Children, as well as adults, will tire of this toy after a couple of times with the severly limited 'play' time. By the time it recharges, and can be used, most will loose interest in it very quickly. It also states to not run it over sand, certain carpet lengths, etc. So, unless you have a paved driveway or other surface outside, or inside hardwood floors, or office type carpet, you won't get much use out of this. Very disappointed.

Fun for adults

This dune buggy was cool and fast. The rechargeable battery is a great feature. Not sure how long the battery lasts cause we had to much fun trying to steer it. My girls enjoyed themselves.

So far I've been happy with the car we got. The car is fast for $40. I do have to agree that the steerings not that good, and the front tires are a bit wobbly. I could really see there being a problem if you drove it outside too much. All in all I've been happy with it compared to other cars We bought in the past, but they're definitely not as good as they used to be.

Fast but....

I received this Dune Rebel Remote Control from the Spark Reviewer program. I thought my boys, (and my husband), would have a blast. Let me start by saying this RC car is very fast but our Dune Rebel did not turn right when we wanted it to do so. The RC Dune Rebel did not have a very good turning radius and was slow to respond to the remote control (ex: If I want it to turn left, it would take a second to respond and then it would turn in that direction). It reversed very well and turned fine in each direction.This RC car comes with a rechargeable 9.6V battery which took around 30 minutes to charge after approximately a 15 minute use.

Disappointed son

My son received this toy for his birthday. The charge didn't last long. He did enjoy it while playing with it. After charging and getting it out again to play with it started smoking and the battery smelled like it was burning. I have been unable to find a battery replacement for it online.

Hi Twenga, Thank you for taking the time to review your son's R/C toy. I am sorry to hear you have experienced this. If you have not already, please reach out to our customer service via our website so we might learn more about what happened with the toy and see if we might be able to get a replacement out to you.

Lost forward movement

My 2 year old Son received this from his grandmother on christmas(12-25-2017). I set it up and operated it for not even 2 minutes, and then smelled burning electrical and lost all forward movement... Steering and reverse still work...just no forward.. I, (being a hobby grade RC guy) popped off the body and undid the cover for the receiver/"speed controller".. Lol... and found one of the transistors melted and the circuit board warped where the transistor was mounted. There are only 4 transistors, one for reverse, one for left and one for right, and the one for forward failed. Gonna take it back and see if I can exchange it.

No need to buy this

I had paid out of pocket money for this and it was running ok for the first charge of the battery but after that it did not want to work properly or at all. After driving it around for more it no longer wanted to turn left or it barely turned left and has a frequent problem of wanting to turn right.

Average Rating:(1.0)out of 5 stars

It was great for 4 days, then it didn't go in reverse anymore, returned it, got the same one again, and this one was worse. The front driver side wheel was loose, broken screw, and to top it off, i inserted the battery to see if it at least runs, it didn't turn on,
