Man that's bad. You never get a true idea of its speed because of the presentation and very short video's been ages since I've seen a commercial do such a good job of misrepresenting a product...10 fps, eh? Not even 7 mph. But sure sounds good! :lol:

WOW! The X0-1 has competition! ;)

Who on earth wants to control a buggy with a phone anyway?

Having said that, this looks cool, tiny and fully proportional.


$89 though! $89!!!! I'd consider it for 20 :)

Speaking of Radio Shack, not sure where it is but I have one of the little ZipZap cars that they sold awhile back.

I think it's faster than that iPhone car!

Yeah, they had micro racers not that long ago, about the size of a Hot Wheels. Just like a real RC, it had it's own controller and quite a few hop-up parts for such a tiny, useless beast. I remember RCCA showing a pic of the crew racing them around the conference table. Considering I haven't looked at an RCCA in over 10 years, that tells you how long ago this was.
