First R/C for my 13 year old brother

Hi,

I know you must get these kinds of questions a lot, so I apologize if it
seems repetitive.

What would you guys recommend for a 13 year old that knows very little
about R/C? He won't be doing any racing - it's just for all-around fun.
A Nitro Evader BX looks like a good deal but would it be better to
start him off on an electric?

Thanks very much,
Chris

that's the truck, but the buggy would be great too. Throw a Speed Gem 11
turn double into the buggy and it's like a rocket.

Don't forget some NiMH battery packs and a NiMh battery charger.

Kids at 13 will want SPEED after the first few days of goofing around.
