This control is amazing because when I got the Speed Remote Control it only turned. but not with the Power Functions IR Remote Control.It is 360 directional and with it you can make any Lego model move-even the Power Miners Mine Mech.

Customer Video Review Length:: 0:24 Mins Lego is not cheap and LEGO on amazon can be especially expensive, but I love my remote control. It lets you do things like this (take a look at the video) with decent reach (ca. 12 ft) and efficient battery use.
