Welcome to my Top Race Aston Martin Style RC Car review. With Christmas coming up very quickly, it’s time to think about presents and stocking fillers. Being a relatively cheap product I’d say this is better as a stocking filler.
Design and quality:
The design of this Aston Martin Style RC Car is very similar to that of an Aston Martin, however, the seller using the name Aston Martin is technically wrong as the car isn’t officially licensed and to be honest it doesn’t deserve to be. It’s very much a case of you get what you pay for and while the car looks nice, it certainly could be better. All it is a plastic shell stuck on top of a wheel board and decorated with stickers related to rally cars, which is kind of strange as a typical Aston Martin doesn’t look like it belongs on a rally track.
The material used is plastic and despite the car being cheap, it does hold up very well against bumps and crashes, which in my house, is a regular occurrence with RC cars. This is just a typical shell bare of any cool features, although it does have real working headlights that come on when the car is being driven.
The car is powered by 4 AA batteries, that don’t come included. I have been using rechargeable batteries as they save me more money over the long run. These may cost more money to buy, but over time, the money-saving benefit is clear to see.
Like most cheap RC cars, this comes with a very generic looking controller. The controller is cheap in both feel and quality. While it gets the job done with its two sticks, it is probably one of the worst I have used. It’s powered by two AA batteries, which again don’t come included, so I have provided my own rechargeable batteries.
This is a fast little car, but it only really works on a smooth surface such as a laminate floor, which luckily my house has a few of. It does work on my low pile carpet, but only just. The steering is quite responsive and the control works really well. The lights add a bit of fun to driving the car in dark areas.
I have played with this a few times now and I’m happy to say it’s still going strong even with all the bumps and smashes it has had over that time. It really is quite a strong RC car.
Admittedly this Aston Martin Style RC Car isn’t the best car RC car in the world, but it’s good enough for just a bit of play time fun. It does look rather cheap and the controller is bland and generic. As a stocking filler, though, I would recommend this.
I received this product for free in return for my honest and unbiased review. This has had no effect on my overall opinion of the product.
