A quick charge of 60 minutes provides a long driving time of up to 30 minutes, and battery charges are easy thanks to the plug-free hard case. The buggy also features full suspension and mechanical gear shifting, and allows for quick tyre changes without tools.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I was very excited about this radio controlled car but was a fraction disappointed in the end.
The car comes neatly packaged in a display box and although the car was so securely attached to the polystyrene it was a little difficult to remove. The plastics zip ties that hold the car place are a little hard to get to and cut so be careful if you want to keep the polystyrene in tact. Although the car comes with a rechargeable battery for the car itself, you should note that the hand controller needs 4 AA batteries which are NOT supplied and you need a Phillips screwdriver to insert. The set comes with a European 2 pin charger (like a shaver plug) but mine came with a UK 3 pin standard plug adaptor and might/might not be included in the retail version. I didn't like the fact that the charger did not have any LED charging light as with many devices so you don't know if the battery is charging or not. The battery easily installs in the base of the car and is locked in place by a simple plastic screw that either a penny can turn or a finger nail.
To use the radio controlled car you must first sync the controller with the car by;
1. pressing the trigger and turning the steering wheel clockwise
2. At the same time as step 1, press the top button to turn the controller on (the LED light will slowly blink)
3. Turn the car on by flipping the switch on the base of the car.

Now that the car is synced, you can speed around outside (or carefully inside). The car has another switch just under the spoiler which allows a hi or lo speed (hi for outside and low for inside).

Playing around with the car, I found that it moves extremely quickly and has quite a powerful engine.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
First off it was an absolute nightmare getting it away from it's packaging - the cable ties were so tight it was difficult to insert scissors between the car and packaging to cut it free. I was concerned about damaging it just unpacking it and it would be very tricky for a youngster to attempt.
Once out though it's a nice looking little RC, it measures 12" in length by nearly 7" wide.

We charged it up - the charger comes as a two pin but with 3 pin adapter included...the crazy thing about the charger is that the LED isn't on the charger unit itself - but it is on the two pin socket which if you're using the supplied socket adapter means that the LED showing it has charged is pointing at the floor so you can't see it. Probably best using a different adapter if that is an issue.

The model has two gear settings Hi and Lo - Lo is for indoors (runs the car slower) whilst Hi is for outdoors. We had it on Lo inside and it's still a nippy little thing. But for some reason we kept losing the remote controller connection - it eventually got annoying after having to reset it every couple of minutes. Now I'm not sure if this was because the car battery wasn't running at maximum capacity or if was down to the batteries in the remote. Either way we recharged both sets (PLEASE NOTE the remote handset doesn't come with rechargeable batteries and uses 4 AA, it's just we always use re-chargables at home these days for everything it seems) but still had the problem ....usually if the battery is low the car stops and makes a bleeping sound but this wasn't the case we were just losing the remote link. Anyway this seemed to happen less and less with each recharge of the car battery to the extent that this problem no longer happens.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This car is great fun! You need 4*AA batteries for the controller, but everything else is provided. Once you have charged the battery for the car and then paired the car to the controller, using the supplied instructions, you just need to find a large space and have fun. We have used it outside on the high speed setting and it is great. There is a small local park with a couple of small jumps and it has coped with these with no major problems (the front bumper has snapped off, but it did that when it was driven into the curb by one of my kids). From a full charge it last somewhere between 25/30 minutes before it really starts to struggle. One word of warning though, it's not water proof so don't run it through any puddles! The remote does deserve a mention, as it has a single trigger for forward/backwards and a wheel for steering - very intuitive and simple to use.

Possibly not the most robust of RC cars for outside, but it is great fun!

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
My 14 year old son has been test driving the Blue Mantis for just over a month.

I concur with other reviews - it is a pain to unbox, lots of tape and cable ties to contend with. Charging took around three hours to achieve a full battery and this will give you between 15-25 minutes of use. Performance, speed and handling were best on a hard surface (concrete/tarmac), but the buggy handled well on short grass in our local park.

I don't think the construction would stand up to many harsh impacts as it doesn't feel overly well constructed, but that said, it is still a reasonably well made buggy, the construction is a lot better than some cheaper radio control cars I've seen. I'd recommend for ages of around 7 and over. Provides lots of fun and will be used often. The only drawback for me is the limited battery life, it would possibly be an idea to purchase an additional battery to get prolonged use. Pricewise, I'd say it's reasonable value for money. Recommended.
