2 remotes and rechargeable battery too
heat for that price
does it have to be an appstar tablet?
Ordered one for a bit of fun. Only thing I did notice was the 37mhz option, hope that's a typo and should be 27mhz as technically only 27mhz, 40mhz and 2.4gz are legal in the UK for ground based devices
I've used my sons 5th birthday next month as an excuse to buy it.
the included remote broke in an hour!

I installed app for remote on my hudl 2 but no joy.2nd control broke within 20 mins of use, now I returned cars and waiting for responce ,

If u want it to last a day go ahead waste your money
Mine didn't work out of the box - phone app connected to the antenna but the car didn't respond. The hand remote control unit did control the car, but only made it do forwards & backwards, no directional controls.
It's in the return post today.
Bought them all to put on eBay... oh, knackers hang on!

If u want it to last a day go ahead waste your money

If the battery lasts a day, I'm there, thanks!
I confirm that the controller is VERY fragile as people have mentioned. You twist a dial to turn left or right and if you put slightly too much force then something snaps inside. My poor car would then only turn right after that lol.

Tried the dongle on my galaxy note 4 with no luck. It just wouldnt connect to the car. I then tried on Iphone 6 and got some communication but the delay meant the car wasn't controllable so I went back to the remote.

Nice idea but an absolute waste of money. I thought for £9.99 it would be a good laugh to controller a car from my phone but was very disappointed.
I thought you were all being too rough with your controllers, so armed with the knowledge that it's very fragile I set about using mine as carefully as could be, and sure as hell the controller broke within around 30 minutes of use. Set up the app on my phone but it's useless, tries to connect then something beeps, then says to turn it on which I've just done, then tells me the controller needs to be plugged in which it is.

Garbage, complete GARBAGE. AVOID!
