The Infrared Laser Battle Tank Set contains two, 14.5 inch long remote control tanks armed with infrared weapons that can fire up to 25 feet! A tank becomes disabled and gradually "dies" as it absorbs hits. Four lights on top of the tanks indicate the life force levels. These laser infrared tanks are a blast for kids young and old. With two tanks per package, you just need to invite a friend over and let the battle begin!
These toys have cool sound effects as well as lights. Motorized sounds start when a tank is activated so it sounds like you are really driving. Even better are the firing noises and recoil motion when the main gun is fired! Each turret can also rotate 300 degrees horizontally to aim at a target. These infrared tanks can move at speeds of up to several mph and be directed forward, left, right, and backward. They work best on hard surfaces, such as hardwood flooring or packed dirt, rather than carpet.
This Infrared Laser Battle Tank Set package contains one pair of two 14.5 inch long tanks plus transmitters, two rechargeable 7.2V 400mAh NiCd tank battery packs, and A/C chargers for the rechargeable tank batteries. One tank runs on 27MHz and the other on 40MHz, so they can be driven together. The transmitters require several AA size batteries (not included).
What do I need to set up the tanks? You need four AA batteries for the radio transmitters, two for each transmitter, and one Philipps head screwdriver. The screwdriver is needed for unpacking since the tanks are secured by screws into styrofoam packaging for safe shipping. The tank batteries should be charged for 8 hours before starting up the tanks for the first time.
The battle tank sets are very kid friendly. The transmitter antennas are flexible so you don't have to worry about breaking one. Also, the battery holders for the radios and tanks just slide on and off so you don't have to worry about losing small screws or screwdrivers.
