The dream becomes a reality as the radio control handset is taken over by the child as at last the excited anticipation finds its fulfilment in the experience now being undertaken.
A little bit of wisdom when choosing a model for a child might be to go for the cheaper end of the market and as the manufacturers make many models with children in mind it is not to difficult to find something appropriate perhaps avoiding the more powerful, high performance models for the adults.
