Bought this for my fella and although he loved it at first . When he looked at the bits etc it has to build it and then no remote control he was disappointed .
It's a great robot but for a teen age upwards . But better if had a remote control so took it back

A great father and son gift
If you follow the very clear instructions, you should have no trouble assembling this great science Toy.
Adult help will be needed as the pistons are shaped and need to be assembled in the correct order.
Inventive and informative .

Exellent and fun for adults as well as kids
This car comes in kit form & you have to punch out all of the parts before assembly. This does take a while to do & you have to be quite methodical so as not to get confused but it does go together without any problems. It is so much bigger than you think it will be if you just look at the box. It states it should run for approx. 15 mins but mine went for well over 30 mins. It is fascinating as an adult to watch it & the kids love the pistons pumping in and out as either a flat or V engine.
