LEGO Technic App Controlled Top Gear Rally Car
The LEGO Technic Top Gear Rally Car is a much better option for kids than your standard remote control cars. It provides them the chance to build a mean-looking rally car and operate it with ease. It combines the joys of building something using LEGO elements and the pleasure of playing an app-controlled toy.
The Top Gear Rally Car features 463 different LEGO elements, including two motors. There is an XL and L motor that guarantees more authentic vehicle movements. The kit also comes with LEGO’s advanced Smart Hub. It allows children and adults alike to take full control of the actions of the Rally Car.
LEGO ditched the conventional remote controller for a more innovative app-based platform. One has to download the CONTROL+ app on their mobile device to take full advantage of the rally car’s features. However, it is important to check the compatibility of one’s mobile device. There are minimum OS requirements for the application to work.
The app provides three different screens with which to control the movements of the vehicle. It also provides real-time feedback that allows users to make appropriate changes in their vehicle setup and maneuvering. These include a tilt and speed log that gives users the chance to understand their “rallying skills”. This is perfect for accomplishing the different racing challenges that the CONTROL+ provides. Not only are the movements of the Rally Car authentic. The sounds it produces are also as authentic as a real rally car.
The car measures 10 inches long once built. It is also about 3 inches high and 5 inches wide. It makes for a very interesting piece in your display cabinet. The only downside is that it requires 6 pieces of AA-sized 1.5-volt batteries. Nevertheless, the LEGO TECHNIC App-Controlled Top Gear Rally Car is still a great gift for boys and girls.
