Let the sibling rivalry begin! The Spy Gear Spy Video Car VX-6 is an RC car that packs a big game! Simple remote control steering allows the user to spy on people with ease. As an updated model from the original Spy Gear Video TRAKR, this vehicle has upgrades including infrared technology that allows night vision to spy in the darkest of situations, a shorter sturdier antenna and better transmission to be able to send back live feed through walls and up to 200 feet away!
The hands on testing reviews are a mixed crowd. Some feel that the newer upgrades are a big enough plus to cancel out what newer models lose, and others are frustrated with its fixed camera and more of a shoe level viewing ability. The night vision wins out across the board as being the best of its features, and proves to meet all expectations and then some. The Spy Video Car VX-6 also loses all computer technology and does not offer app changes and building online as the TRAKR did. Unlike the TRAKR, though, the VX-6 has a shorter sturdier antenna that is the winner for functionality as the older model had trouble with antenna breakage and loss of video feed after.
The VX-6 has a small, color LCD screen right on the remote that allows the user to get a “real time” feed on what is being seen by the lens on the car. With 4 bigger wheels and a traction belt, the VX-6 is able to tackle carpet, stone, and grass with ease. The VX-6 does require 10 (ten) AA batteries that are not included. Battery life is another mixed bag of reviews ranging from several hours, to several days of use before needing to be changed. It is recommended to use rechargeable batteries as to not drain your wallet.
The Spy Gear Spy Video Car VX-6 is recommended for children 8 and up, and to be used under adult supervision for obvious reasons of what could be spied on. The price is around $60.00 and can be found at most retailers.
