This radio control RC Pro Dune Rebel car is a great remote control car. to test and review. At first I didn't think this one would hold up since it's super lightweight but it's very durable. It has speed, power and performance. It's a bright neon green and black and has a black hand held remote. It comes with all the batteries you need. It goes forward and backwards with the trigger. It goes left and right with the dial. Since it's extremely light it goes super quick. The antenna is internal so no worries with it breaking off. It works great indoors and outside on gravel, dirt and grass. Overall it's an awesome toy.

Fun remote control handles a variety of terrain.
The Radio Control 1:12 Remote Control Pro Dune Rebel is tons of fun! Set up was incredibly easy and the kids had lots of fun racing the Dune Rebel around outside and indoors. Here are a few notes:
• The battery charges quickly and lasts roughly 15 minutes of continues driving. As far as time, it lasts longer than that because there's a lot of stop-and-go. My kids were able to play for quite a while before needing to put the battery back in the charger.
• The instructions warn against hitting the vehicle into any hard objects. Yep. That's true. The plastic top part ended up cracked as my kids banged the Dune Rebel into a bunch of objects. The functionality of the motor and wheels were fine.
• Great speed and movement. It does take a while to master how to maneuver the vehicle, modulating speed and direction, but that's the fun part. My daughter had a fun time pretending that the Dune Rebel was a pet and she would have the vehicle start and stop when it got "spooked". Anyway, plenty of room for creativity.
• Over time, and depending on how skilled the operators are, the functionality can become compromised, making the reaction time of turning a little slower.
We really enjoy the Pro Dune Rebel and just playing around with it!
I received this New Bright RC Pro 1:12 radio control dune rebel and both my husband and kiddos love it!! It's so fun for the whole family. The RC is super bright and full of color. It has digital speed control with forward, reverse, right and left steering. It has a 9.6v lithium battery that lasts so long before having to be recharged. It charges quickly too. When this arrived, it included all the batteries which was super nice to be able to open this and let the kiddos play right away. It is super fast and goes great outside. It's very light weight and I was concerned that it wouldn't hold up well but it's taken lots of abuse and hard playing and is holding up just fine.
This is just an all around fun and well built fun activity for my kiddos. Overall, its just a great toy!! I would definitely recommend this to family and friends or anyone looking for a great RC toy.
Hours of Fun!
I chose this radio controlled Dune Rebel because I knew my boys would have lots of fun running it around in our drive-way and in the cul-de-sac. I have to admit, the dune buggy is alot larger than I had expected since it is 1:12 in size, I had a hard time visualizing the size. The boys love that it is larger and not one of those small ones you usually see. It came with a transmitter, battery pack, and charger, as well as 2 AA batteries for the transmitter. The internal antenna has a range of up to 100 feet so you can drive the dune bugger quite far instead of just having to go around in circles. The controller is a pistol grip making it easy for the boys to hold and control the vehicle. With the controller you can make the vehicle go forward, backward, and and steer right to left. The controller/transmitter also allows you to control the speed of the vehicle. The charger and battery pack make it easy to keep the vehicle charged, and is lithium ion. Since the boys have been doing distance learning for school, they have had alot of free time after they finish their work and this has been one of their favorite things to play with. We will definitely be looking for more radio controlled vehicles!
So much fun
We live in a rural area without paved roads or a paved driveway. Some R.C. toys claim to be able to handle our terrain z but once you get them you see they can't. At first I didn't think this one would be able to handle it either because it's super lightweight, but I can honestly say this lives up to the claims. This had no problems taking on our gravel driveway, dirt road or our grass. We've been able to ride this up big hills and bumps with ease. I most definitely recommend this. I don't know how long the battery lasts because we've never driven it until it went dead. This is loads of fun.
Speed, power, performance!!!
This toy is awesome! It was easy to set up (only battery installation). It came fully charged. All batteries needed were included. You can play with it straight out of the box. It accelerates well and hits great speed. It handled well, easy to maneuver. The range is up to 100 feet, we can drive it way up the street and back. The kids can control it very easily, it doesn't have a bunch of buttons. It responds to the controller instantly. You can move the car forward and backwards with the flick of your finger. It moves well on concrete, grass, low dirt, and low carpet. The colors and design are like real all terrain vehicles. Everyone wants to play with the truck even me. We are going to purchase another one so we won't fuss over the one we have. It truly measures up to its statement "Speed, power, performance".
Fast versatile RC car
This remote control car by New Bright is surprisingly fun to play with. Out of the box, no assembly required, just installing batteries that are included. It is fast and relatively rugged regarding the surfaces that this car can be used on. On hardwood floors, paved roadways, low cut grass, and thin carpets, this car will keep on going. The remote is ok but not your traditional setup, such as going forward or backwards, which is controlled by a trigger switch. For turning, there is a wheel on the remote that acts like a steering wheel. I'm not used to remotes setup this way, but it doesn't take long to get used to it.
Overall, this remote control car has plenty of speed and maneuvering for tons of fun. Highly recommended.
The Radio Control 1:12 Rc Pro Dune Rebel is pretty big fun car but the whole car is pastic shape.
The RC Pro Plus Dune Rebel with 2.4 GHz technology can now race up to 6 vehicles at once. Tough suspension and a durable poly carbonate body, rugged terrain is no problem. Powered by a 9.6v lithium ion battery. 1 hour quick charger and all batteries included.
My kids love to play this car in the park thats so cool anyway, love it.
Low play time
My little one loves this truck, but the battery doesn't last long and he gets frustrated with it. The charging time is about an hour, for roughly 15 minutes of play time. It is easy for a little kid to control. I would recommend pinning down the outer cover a bit, so it doesn't get messed up, it's pretty flimsy.
This RC car looks pretty cool and definitely caught my son's attention. He is only 2.5 years old but he absolutely loves cars or literally anything with a motor. This dune buggy is pretty light and the top is flimsy and plastic so I'm not sure how long it'll last. It has an old school remote with the turn wheel and trigger instead of a controller that fits in both hands. It comes with the batteries it needs at half charge and doesn't take long to charge. The blinking lights are pretty self-explanatory and the directions are easy to read. This thing is super fast and turns without a problem; it has a lot of power. Unfortunately, you may only get maybe 15-20 minutes of drive time total before it has to be recharged. My 6 year old obviously drives it much better than my 2.5 year old, but he'll catch on. I think this RC car is worth half the price it's advertised for. The body and wheels will probably last longer than the shell. I think if they would tweak a few things, this would be a great toy.
