Transmitter Battery Installation
Transmitter
Your transmitter (remote control) features two joysticks. The one on the left moves up
(forward) and down (reverse) to control the forward and backward motion of the car.
Press it up or down and hold to move your car. The joystick on the right moves to the right
and left to control the turning of your car.
3. Replace battery cover.
Avoid heat, water or wet surfaces, dusty surfaces or sand.
Off-road vehicles run easier on grassy surfaces.
Avoid hard-impact collisions. Collisions against hard surfaces may damage the vehicle.
The vehicle cannot operate on thick carpets or dusty floors.
If you wish to operate more than one vehicle at a time, you must purchase another vehicle
on another frequency.
If the car does not respond to the transmitter, move closer to the car and try again.
If the car starts to lose power, performance may decrease. If this happens, simply recharge
your car again.

Avoid moisture and extreme temperatures. For best results, use between the temperatures
of 39ºF and 100ºF (4º C and 38º C) and keep away from fire.
• Avoid using the vehicle for long periods under direct sunlight. Sunlight or excessive heat
may damage electronic parts.
• Store the vehicle transmitter in a dry, cool place away from heaters or warm areas.
• Do not use cleaners with chemical agent. Clean using only slightly damp cloth. Then use a
dry cloth to wipe off the moisture. Dust, dirt, or other foreign objects can also be removed
from your vehicle by using a brush or by tying a small bit of cloth to the tip of a toothpick or
tweezers and using that to wipe off your car.
