I've beat the piss out of mine now a bit... Honestly I think it's one of the more indestructable RC's I've had. I'm shocked because it has no suspension to speak of at all. That usually can murder a gearbox. Not this thing though. I rolled it off a couple steps even.
The spinning is cool too, I agree. It controls like a tank (or like tanks used to), by driving each wheel independantly. It's incredibly maneuverable once you get the feel for the somewhat sensitive controls. I'm a little experienced with RC stuff and the bigger things control a bit more sensitively, but really this isn't hard to master. It's just right for kids I think.
The rockets... They should include a full extra set. These things will be lost.
They go very, very far... Definitely not for use around the pets with little ones I think.
