Rechargeable batteries will do the job nicely!

Correct, nowadays, in the middle of the lockdown I think including delivery fee is a better way to post a deal.

So perfect for first RC car to crash on a street outside
Already got rechargeable batteries sitting around so this will be nice addition to actually use them and also have a little bit of fun. Heat. Thanks OP.

I used to sell RC cars, we got something like 50% returns from New bright. Obviously stopped selling them in the end. The controllers have extremely poor signal and range, the steering twitches and is only partially responsive. If it worked albeit slow for this price I'd say it's fine but my experience with their crap is that it won't.
My daughter is after a good radio controlled truck/car for doing assault courses in the garden. She has saved £50, can anyone help with recommendations? I'd prefer to buy from Amazon as I have prime delivery. tia

The description is misleading, I have this car and it's 2 for remote and 3 for the car.

I presume by assault course you're referring to what's known as crawling. Basically driving over rocks, streams, hills etc etc

The best like the traxxas trx4 or axial scx10 cost around £300-£500.

But some really good budget options are Everest 10 or FTX Ravine but even those cheaper options will set you back about £100.

I would avoid anything new bright or brands like red5. They're all show and are pretty useless.

If you want to stick to £50 then search for WLToys. They make some really decent stuff for crazy cheap prices.

Also for crawling the industry standard is 1/10 scale, but anything 1/10 to 1/16 will be ok for this. Just don't go any smaller like 1/24, the fun won't last long with something that small.

I agree with the above but it's worth finding a Nikko radio control car if you are on a budget. However they are hard to come by now. I believe they went into administration a few years ago which is why I managed to pick up this bargain for a tenner hotukdeals.com/deals/vaporiser-2-nikko-radio-controlled-car-10-was-25-at-morrisons-2551445 for our youngest daughter.

At the same time our eldest daughter wanted this newbright.com/products/r-c-ford-f-150-svt-raptor/ in green from Argos.

Nikko one battery lasted three times longer, range was 6 times further and was overall built much stronger. Only downside to the Morrisons bargain was our youngest had to get used to steering the Nikko Vaporizer 2 like a tank but she soon got used to it plus I didn't have to worry about her flying through puddles!

After almost 4 years the New Bright from Argos has stopped charging and the Nikko is still like new despite many smashes into kerbs!

Worth browsing YouTube for reviews too there's this one smythstoys.com/uk/en-gb/toys/construction-and-cars/radio-control-cars/nikko-velocitrax/p/151883002 but I don't think it has conventional steering but it looks fun
:-)

As a child I had a Tamiya Grasshopper & Tamiya Blackfoot and I've been impressed with Nikko products. Thankfully they were bought out last year so looking forward to more cheap fun toys which last!
