We received this unit last week and my eldest son has been very excited to try it out. Unfortunately, due to the busy schedule we haven’t gotten the chance to set it up and play with it. We plan to do it this weekend and I’m sure that my son won’t be the only one having fun playing with these cool, high-tech toys. I’ll update this post after we get to test and take it out for a spin.
