Pros & Cons
The Maisto Remote Controlled Rock Crawler is a great toy truck for entertaining your little one. This RC toy truck makes a great gift you've been looking for your child! It's a safe truck that will get past most bulky roads, great for outdoor plays. Try it out in reverse and see how it turns really well! It has 2 motors to power all 4 wheels and a low gear for a good traction on rough terrains. The suspension and shocks with coil-over work very well.
The Maisto Remote Controlled Rock Crawler may need a lot of batteries that is why it is advisable that you use rechargeable batteries rather than ordinary batteries. Though the remote range is limited and it might not work well in small hallways or around corners the Maisto Remote Controlled Rock Crawler is still a great car for your child because of the safety built around it. It moves slow so that if ever you lose control, the car is sure to be easy to catch.
Overall, the Maisto Remote Controlled Rock Crawler is a decent toy grade truck for playing indoors or outdoors. It uses 6 AA batteries and one 9 volt battery for the controller. For a prolonged use, get rechargeable batteries and use that for the truck to run on.
