Ya...my son has one of those tank. It's pretty cool, but the smallest pebbles will jam the tracks and the tank makes this horendous noise that sounds like it stripped every gear in it...lol. It's still going 3 years latter though. I'm not sure if The Source (aka Radio Shack) still carries them or not. If so, they can be had for less then $50 i think.

What about something like this?

Be sure to scroll down and watch the included vid...really cool....Actually, for that price it's a steal if it really works like it shows in the video.

Check out Liquidation World for any discontinued Radio Shack stuff.

Inventory varies wildly from store to store though...you hafta check them all.

I wonder if they make RC tanks with a BB gun like the battle ships we saw on RC-TV?

rc tank

they do make tanks with the bb gun. Not distibuted here with the powerfull one, but I have the one that fires the 6mm plastic bb's. They go about 20 feet.

OP - I was at pinnacle hobby in Markham last week and they carry a couple R/C tanks, give them a call or check it out. I thought I saw one for $70.00 but I could be wrong.

Mine with the bb shooter was about 120 if I remember correctly.
