Good size remote control car (H8.4, W14.8, D23.5cm.) which can be controlled by smart phone or tablet (I'm guessing anything running iOS, Android or Windows but can't find an official list so not too helpful). Can't justify the original price of £29.99 but for £9.99 having a car you can control with your phone could be crazy fun at work or at home as such. Comes with free delivery and 12 month's warranty.

I guess Argos don't like me too much then.....

"The item you've selected wasn't added to your basket.

This seller won't sell to buyers that do not meet their requirements."

Ah, can see I bought something from them years ago which they lied to me about having delivered, then after lots of emails admitted that it hadn't been delivered after all and was in their warehouse! Guess I'm banned for that then!!

Won't let me email them either!!

Just make a new account if you want it that bad. I have my business eBay and my personal one.

Yeah could do, can I be bothered though....!

"We're having a problem at the moment. Please try again later."

Can't get ebay to work on setting up new account.

Ebay live chat are useless, they gave me several dead ends to try and then told me they'd done good!

meh given up, didn't want the stupid car anyway!

Bought one last year from same manufacturer.. utter, utter tripe. Worked for 8 seconds. Avoid.

lol thanks, maybe I had a lucky escape then! My email to Argos came back saying to contact them through Ebay, yet in Ebay it says you can't contact them as they're too busy to reply!!

I think you need the Appstar tablet or the included controller to control this not iOS or android. I remember looking at one and seeing a picture of the tablet on the box. I will stand corrected if this is incorrect.

Dug the depth of the internet for this on Argos' site. They say it's compatible with Android and iOS and as seen in the pic just requires the dongle included which plugs in to an AUX port!

I am corrected....good find on the info

would this work with Lg G2?

Well is it android, iOS or windows?

It's a car, not a bike...

Do you need to buy the dongle separately?

Ah, there's one listed as upaid, but it's an item that wasn't delivered, don't think they ever sent it, but refunded me a week or so afterwards when I started hassling them for tracking details. That and a mobile sim which said not to pay if it finished under 22p but I think that's dropped off now.

i see, that is all i can think of why they wouldn't allow you to buy

great price heat from me. Thanks

It seems to imply that you need a specific tablet to control it. Or do they refer to a special app? I am not sure this works with any tablet. A bit questionable for me, and combine that with the fact they are obviously selling returns...

Hot!

Good price, looks fun. Purchased one for my nephews Birthday!

Link that shows this car working with an iPad for anyone who is on the fence about tablet control.

Thanks Op

Thanks OP. Heat added!

Got one last year terrible turning circle very unresponsive and stopped working within 6 months so I took it back

Got one for my son's birthday, it arrived yesterday. It doesn't work he was gutted. Not impressed.

Oh well thanks anyway op for the find. Just need to Get a refund now.

I bought one of these and work absolutely fine. Turning circle is a bit limited but it's fast and responsive. also tested on iphone / ipad and that works fine too. All is in the box except you need AA batteries for the remote. It has 2 frequencies but they are factory set as A or B. If you could request a frequency, I would buy another.

As I put in the other thread, controller broke as did a lot of other people's. Garbage, avoid.

I wouldn't expect them to make a decent controller though as it's sole purpose is to be controlled by a device, but thanks for the feedback.

More detail in the other thread, but most people (including me) can't get that part to work either, so I have no way of controlling it! The car itself seems nice though, massive shame.
