I have terminal prostate cancer and cannot walk very far. I attached the Rover 2.0 to my EVATECH remote control lawn mower and now I can cut my lawn (while sitting inside my home) and see what is in the path of my mower. The battery life and video/voice range of the Rover 2.0 is excellent. Understanding the Rover 2.0 is just "along for the ride". Thank you for a great product.

I found hard to control in both manual steering and the tilt function steering. On a Samsung Galaxy S3 two finger taps are not always recognized so has a tendency to continue turning when you want to go straight. And G drive can be just as tricky as when you want to reverse or stop you'll tilt the screen to vertical from the flat position and the rover is still traveling forward. I have none of these accelerometer problems with my ar drone or ar drone 2. I think the app need tweaking. And yes the batteries do run out faster than the original rover. Much quicker in fact. Came with scratches on it right out of the box. Old white rover is in better condition than rover 2.0 new

      Batteries which are not rechargable die after just a few hours of it being on. Just being on, not using it. So whats the point? Everytime you want to mess with the dogs they're gonna know as soon as they see you pick up the unit and turn it on manually.

            Comments about Rover 2.0 App-Controlled Wireless Spy Tank:

            I purchased this to make videos in hared to reach areas, and just for fun as well. Most items of this type never seem to work as advertised, disappointing results, poor performance, and just plain don't work.

            This Rover works flawlessly! A little learning curve to get the steering down, but it is super simple after just an hour of practice time. All features work great, I found very little delay time in executing maneuvers, and the night vision is as good as my 1100.00 Sony Handi-Cam.

            On my Thrive tablet, I had to actually "connect" in settings, but the signal was strong, and it isn't even a con, just the way certain tablets work.

            100% satisfied, and really am impressed with this fun gizmo! Great gift, but for someone a bit learned in bluetooth devices, it is a gizmo after all!

            Love It! :)

              Pros: Fun to use even as an adult. Great for playing with pets. Smooth surfaces are best but will work on plush carpet.

              Cons: Wi-Fi connect not very strong but will stay connected. Controls may lag a bit. Not a very strong drive so smooth, level surfaces is best.
