        ++Preliminary Observations Part 1++
        The main use of this item was to examine the crawl space under our house (there were some water issues). All of the other "rovers" like the Tank clearly state for indoor or level surfaces (sand is a no no as well). This item seems to work well for every thing except step obstacle over 1 inch high and (according to manual)not to be used through water.
        I am getting use to the controls topside before I take it under :-). I had wanted to use the sliders but between the delay and coarseness of the controlling the Rover, it is taking a bit of time to get used to timing. Bigger sliders would have really helped. I have also tried using the Galaxy 3 tilt feature, but it has its own issues. Do not get me wrong, this is probably a problem 75% me learning and 25% control design.

        Also I had hoped for 4-wheel drive, but only the rear is powered. But that would be an improvement of a pretty impressive unit. The individual sprung wheels help with the rough terrain and traction seem fine. All the lights work as described light or dark and the focus on the two cameras is pretty good.

        When I can properly navigate it around inside the house and then outside, I will then attempt the reason for the gift. That is to map the crawlspace (house is 3800 sq ft raised foundation), check for any leaks and foundation cracks. Normally I would do this in person, but that is not something I am able to do anymore. By all account, with the video and photo capabilities of the Rover and the range (I can always walk above it in the house while it is in the crawlspace), I expect to be able to do part 2 of this review to include the original reason for the purchase.

        Oh yes, I almost forgot, its fun!!!

        Not a good product.

        By I Returned this

        from Miami

        Pros

        • Fun For Indoors

        Cons

        • Camera
        • camera isn't great
        • Controls Are Poor
        • Doesn't Work Outdoors
        • Night Vision Is Weak

        Best Uses

        • Indoors only

        I purchased this product also 3 days ago, I've used it quite a lot in the past few days, and all I have to say is that I'm not impressed at all.

        1. Camera quality is poor. There are 2 cameras attached to this rover. The swivel turret camera, and the stationary front camera. The front camera doesn't detect color, and the turret camera gets a really grainy color. The live video that this devise offers is glitchy and freezes up way to often.

        2. The controls are though to use. I've tried very hard to get this to travel in a straight line, and I've failed every time. If you try to turn you do an almost 360 degree turn and end up under some couch with the antenna snapped off.

        3. The "off-roading" that is shown on the box is a total fake. This Rover can barley make it across a flat surface. I haven't been able to get it across my carpet, any grass or leaves is a total long shot. Every time I've been in any type of carpet it inches it's way so slowly and makes such a crunching noise I'm honestly worried it will break.

        Overall I'm highly disappointed in this product. I'm planning on returning it soon. TAKE ME ADVICE and buy another brand of rc vehicle.

        Needs a dev kit

        By ThatGuy

        from Denver, CO

        Pros

        • Decent camera
        • Works as expected

        Cons

        • No Dev Kit
        • Slow Response Time

        Best Uses

        • Searching My Crawlspace

        I bought this to have a view of my crawlspace (trying to see if I still have a few cats down there).

        The controls are sluggish and jerky on a Galaxy S4 (use airplane mode to get it to work).

        I bet Brookstone would sell quite a few of these if they published the com protocol or released a com DLL to control and view this thing from your own program.

        • Examine Crawl Space

        ++Preliminary Observations Part 1++
        The main use of this item was to examine the crawl space under our house (there were some water issues).

          AWESOME!!!!

          By mattmandeluxe

          from Austin

          Pros

          • Easy to setup
          • Good battery life
          • Simple For The 9 Year Old
          • Simple For The Kids To Us

          Cons

          • Best Used Inside
          • Not Built For All Terrain

          Best Uses

          • Inside It Is Great

          I purchased 2 of these for my sons age 9 and 13. I own a lot of modeler quality R/C toys. These are definitely Inside toys but they were so simple to set up, worked right out of the box and the boys loved them. They are using mini-ipads to control them. Each car broadcasts it's own WIFI SSID so there is no interference between them. Just select the SSID and open the Revolution app and off you go. Great battery life and the camera's can even record TV quite well with their refresh rates. Love the quiet stealth mode. The boys hid for an hour filming Christmas the entire time. Great video capture. Rarely do remote control toys live up to the hype. These really are AWESOME!!!!

          Pros

          • Camera Woks Awesome
          • Camera Works Awesome
          • Cool features

          Cons

          • Broke In An Hour

          Best Uses

            Front axel that holds the wheel is made of plastic that broke after an hour. My son did not rough house and ran over wood floors. It was his favorite gift and he was really bummed when it broke. I am hoping it is just a fluke and brooks tone wil take care of defect. Totally worth what we paid if it would have lasted longer. I will update my post after talking to Brookestone.

                    Cons

                      Best Uses

                        I have owned many R/C vehicles and this is the best one yet. It's very well constructed, very durable inside and outside. I'm using a Samsung Galaxy 4 and an Ipad Air to control it. It is a little difficult to control with the cell phone, but with the Ipad it's a breeze. The Stealth mode works wonderful with night vision and the two way radio also works great. I am impressed with the quality of the video. I definitely recommend this.

                        Pros

                        • Camera's Work Well
                        • Setup To Android Pad Easy
                        • Works Well Inside

                        Cons

                        • Can Not Get Wet
                        • Route Record Length Short
                        • Run Poor On Gravel
                        • Runs Poor On Grass

                        Best Uses

                        • Using For Inside House

                        Everything seems to work inside great except I could not record a route much over 10 seconds and get it to play back. Outside it will not run through grass unless it is very short. Won't go on river rock. So mainly cement and packed dirt. You have to make sure it does not get wet so it is untrue that this a great all terrain car.
