Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly well thought out I bought this RC car mainly to try out Bluetooth technology with a radio controlled car. The app download from Google Play store was quick and caused no problems with my phone or tablet. The only issue is when you are bonding the confirmation comes up in Chinese...I chose the left button which I presumed was OK and it worked. The vehicle was nicely packaged and went from boxed to used in under 5 minutes thanks to Silverlit including batteries in the package. The interface is a little touchy if you use gesture mode, even in the lowest sensitivity position. Don't let the roughly 1/24th scale size of the car fool you though, it really isn't an indoor play thing, unless you want to repaint your molding. Take it out on a paved surface and you will truly appreciate the power of this car. I think I had as much fun playing with the lighting as I did actually driving the car. The app controls headlights (on/off), signals, brake lights, horn (if you have your phone sound on) and as funny as it sounds you can even throw the four ways on, just for the fun of it. Speed of the car is surprisingly fast and configurable...so if you are just learning how to drive the car, you can slow the acceleration down, and if you want a Ferrari experience go the other direction and the car becomes something that needs a professional race car driver to drive, yes spin outs are possible. I found the joystick operation was the most usable and was responsive enough for pleasurable driving. One comment is that you need to be within 30 feet of car to control, if not the car puts the brakes on and you have to reconnect with the car. I know that is a Bluetooth limitation and not a true limitation of the car, but it means that your racing has to be done within that area, or you have to run with the car. Unlike most radio controlled cars that the battery dies after 5 minutes of play, the Ferrari seems to be pretty good at battery efficiency. I full out raced a good 10 minutes and the batteries did not seem to have any measurable depletion. I will be interested to see how long they last considering they are pretty much no-name batteries. Anyway, after a night of playing around with this Ferrari, I would definitely give Silverlit a good pat on the back for a techno toy that seems like a lot of thought was put into it. I would recommend for anyone age 10 as I think that driving it responsibly will prolong the car's life.
