So he doesn't want another birthday present, or another car ( and no more of this model available ), he wants THIS one.
Normally I would, but I am with him on this one - the trigger was a krappy design, and the arial wasn't completely his fault.Problem was the radio. First the trigger broke ( like only a 7 yr old can do ). Fixed that.Next the antenna got snapped in half - still worked.Then trigger broke again in a different place. Fixed that.Antenna got snapped again - apparently you only need a 5mm antenna anyway ( ask my son )Then it gave up the ghost completely, and trigger broke again.We have another cheap RC car that got stood on ( same 7 yr old ) and busted wheels.
