Solid model, less than great controls
" The buggy itself is a nice kit. The build, while not complicated, was fun, and the resulting car was solid. Although I do think it's a bit pricey given the brick count. I also like how fast it moves. For an indoor RC toy it's moves at a nice clip.
Unfortunately the controls are not great. The single joystick controlling both speed and direction make it difficult to control given how fast it moves. I understand Lego was going for a bit of a retro feel with this kit, but any older RC vehicle I used always had separate speed and steering controls. I echo other reviewers who hope a software update will include a second controller option. "
