This is a Tamiya 1/35 scale Radio Controlled (RC) assembly model kit of the World War II German Panther Type G tank, late production variant. Specs & Features: 1/35 R/C assembly kit, which comes with a newly developed infrared Battle System. Forward/reverse, left/right turning, pivot turning, turret rotation, gun elevation, firing actions, engine start/stop, and sound volume can all be easily controlled. Pre-assembled gearboxes with Type 130 motors provide realistic movement. Single compact unit (also pre-assembled) controls both turret rotation and gun elevation. Requires four R03/AAA/UM4 batteries for tank and one 006(9V)/6F22 battery for controller. New 2.4GHz radio. Left stick controls tank movement, right stick controls turret/ gun movement, and 4 action buttons put various effects at your fingertips. Allows control of driving, turret & gun movement, and firing actions all at the same time. For those who enjoys the idea of building a RC tank but are not quite ready for those big fully equipped Tamiya 1/16 scale RC tank beauties, this high quality 1/35 scale Tamiya RC tank assembly kit is just what you are looking for. This newly developed (circa 2010) 1/35 scale RC tank kit by Tamiya comes complete with sound effects, a newly developed Infrared Battle System, and a new 2.4GHz radio that eliminates the need for frequency crystals. Add 4 AAA batteries for the tank and 1 for the controller, and you are ready to do battle with another similarly equipped Tamiya 1/35 scale R/C tank. This series of 1/35 scale RC tanks are some of the coolest kits by Tamiya that I?ve seen, and I got a couple of them in my shop ready for battle. Enjoy!
