Forces of Valor / Unimax 1/24 Tanks: Awesome!

Just wanted to chime in and say that I picked up some Forces of Valor aka Unimax 1/24 scale tanks for my young sons (ages 4 and 6) and I to have some fun with. My boys both picked Pershings and I went with a Sherman. First R/C tank experience after 25+ years in R/C... man are these things fun to drive and do IR battle with!

We've only run them for a few days but have probably about 3+hrs total time on them so far, and they're holding up great. IMHO they are right at the high end of the "toy" category... not quite as fancy as a true hobby grade machine, but overall a really nice package that's well put together and "just works"...

Hopefully they hold up well and give us many more hours of pleasure. The size of both the tanks and the transmitters is perfect for my sons, not so big that they're hard to handle, and not so small that you've got to worry constantly about fragility. Overall I am very pleased with the experience. I will post pictures if anyone is interested.
