It's a kids toy, not a real RC car. Same junk you get from Walmart but in a LX570 body. It runs on four AA batteries. It's $45. Don't expect much. A real hobby grade RC truck will be in the $350+ range and will have a NiMH or LiPo battery pack. This is a waste of money IMO, unless you just want a model of your personal truck to sit on a shelf.
