Default Vintage R/C from Radio Shack lol

I remember begging my dad for one of these things over 30 years ago...










$10 bucks on EBay

Listing said it didn't work, but it turned out to be an easy fix (solder joint short)

Works good as new, but now that I have it, I'm wondering why the heck I bought it in the first place.....

Just had to make a video with the little guy though lol

I had that same toy! Radio Shack used to have some really neat stuff 30 years ago. (man I feel old) My first decent RC car was the Golden Arrow from radio shack. It was comparable to my buddies Grass Hopper.
