    I would recommend this to a friend!
    Purchased for: Son
    These remote, and motor parts make any Lego set, or build go to the next stage of fun. My son want's to buy more so as to make the truck a full RC. My son is 9, the build rated 10-14 so was a challenge, which is what he enjoys.

    The "Main Knob" for all IR builds
    | 45-54
    I would recommend this to a friend!
    This unit is brilliant !! It's not just a reciever, but also a twin controller unit. It has 2 separate subchannels for each of the 4 main channels. This way it will control 2 motors or 1 motor and lights on a train, or any two powerfunction units. As a "train-o-holic" this unit along with the other controls is a MUST for powering and controlling modern lego IR trains. I wish that lego would make a SET with the necessary items for powering trains: 8884 IR reciever 8879 IR speed remote control 8870 lights 88002 train motor 88000 battery box (or alternately, 8878 rechargable battery box and 8887 charger) And then give us a reasonable rebate on the whole deal, since we already have bought a train. {;o)

    This is an essential set if you want any remote control. BUT!! The current output is vastly limited --> You cannot run any of two PF motors from one slot. Of course, you can workaround this problem with two IR receivers, assigning each PF motors to each IR receivers. But you need two controllers...

    I would recommend this to a friend!
    This is a very good Piece of equipment, if you just have a motor and a battery box and looking into making your models RC this would be very helpful, It has about a 25-30 Foot range Indoors, and about a 15-20 Out doors. This has been a fan loved piece so there where three types, Most people don't...
