The vehicle battery is included but the remote control requires five AA batteries which are not included. You'll receive up to twenty minutes of freestyle stunt-driving action fun every time you charge it up. It is required to charge the vehicle and insert batteries before use, so kids will have to be patient before they set off playing with the Richochet Tricksters. Three channel settings are on the remote to prevent any frequency crossings. The vehicle is different colors on each side. Buzzsaw Spin is black and green on one side and blue and orange on the other.
The Tonka XT Richochet Trickster has provided much entertainment for my boys and husband. It brings out the competitiveness in them, seeing who can master the most stunts and tricks. The R/C vehicle fares better on flat surfaces but the boys have been able to get it over rough, bumpy surfaces as well. It jerks, flips, and spins all over the place making for an exciting drive. I've seen Buzzsaw Spin jump off my table, flip over a sheet of metal, and do stunts on my floor. Logan, Adam, and Jason think the R/C toy is lots of fun to play with; They just wish they could get more use out of it between charging times. Knowing that there's three Tonka XT Richochet Tricksters in all, I'm going to have to get the other two so all three of the guys can play at once.
