A-Team remote control van

Posted by Ub3rG33k on Dec 24, 2011 in Tech

Just a quick post to show you a bargain I got. As some of you may know, I have a handful of remote control vehicles, for example the Millennium Falcon and the Delorean, Well this one is just another cheap toy for the collection.

This one dropped from £40 to £8.99 with £1.99 shipping from the Argos outlet store

The description on the eBay site is ‘Fully functioning radio control van, featuring working lights and sound effects. A team theme tune is activated by pressing a button on the handset, with illuminating spotlights, headlights and tyre screeching sound effect.’…..for £11 I couldn’t really pass it up.

Well, it arrived yesterday and I’m pleasantly surprised. I have to admit, it does feel a bit cheap, but it drives well, and the A-Team tune did make me smile as I had it blearing out as I chased the cats around the room. The speaker is in the back of the van, so if you want to hear it over the sound of the motor whining you will need to open up the back doors.

Again, the ‘tyre screeching sound effect’ made me smile, take a corner hard and you’ll get the screeching noise.

All in all, a fun piece of kit for £11 🙂

As always, unboxing photos below, and a video of the A-Team tune you get when you press the button on the controller.

Remote Control Delorean

Posted by Ub3rG33k on Mar 1, 2011 in Brain Dump, Tech

After playing with the Remote Control Millennium Falcon, I’ve been on the outlook for more nostalgic remote control vehicles.

To list just a few on my “To get” list are, the General Lee, the A-Team van, Knight Riders KITT and the Back to the Future Delorean. You can only imagine my joy when I saw that Argos were selling off the Deloeans for £12.99 each in their eBay outlet store. These are usually around the £30 mark, and if you look on eBay now, they seem to be going for between £30 – £50 (which I’d bought loads !)

To be honest, there’s not much to say…it’s a remote control Delorean :)…..and before you ask, I’ve attempted to get it up to 88 mph, but nothing seems to happen 🙂

The Universal Dock Adaptor

Posted by Ub3rG33k on Jan 10, 2009 in Apple

Well, I have to say I’m impressed with this doc.

I like most people tried to do things on the cheap, and bought a dock from Ebay. It was a genuine Apple dock, however not for Touch 2nd Gen. It did work, however fitment was sloppy and the doc adapter didn’t fit.

This one just works, plugged it in, dropped my Ipod Touch on it, and it synced straight away, the good thing is, if I don’t use the dock adapter, it fits with the case on 🙂

Finally, the remote control that comes with it, also controls the MacBook 🙂

I was shocked at the presentation of this box, to say all it is, is a dock , I think they really pushed the boat out.
