Gadgets have always interested me and my family. Hubby and I are a couple of geeks who get excited at the newest advances in technology both for business, home and even today's toys. 

If you have a need for speed, forget remote control cars - go beyond the remote control with Darkside. 

Darkside is like the evil brother to Ollie, the app controlled robot. Darkside is devious, defiant, diabolical and dangerous! An electrical beast that draws its energy from unrestrained competition and reckless abandonment. Command Darkside with these forces to unleash its unrivaled power. But beware - the Darkside will overpower anything standing in the way of victory - including it's master. 

Darkside comes with 2 Nubby Tires, 2 Turbo Tires, 2 Prime Hubs, 2 Flux Hubs, USB charging cable and the quickstart guide.

Setting up Darkside is simple, plug it in via USB plug (My iphone power block works with the cord to plug it into an outlet to charge) and let it charge. While you wait you can download the free app from the App Store or Google Play. The app allows you to control Darkside by driving, doing tricks and also control the speed if it goes to fast for you. 

Once Darkside is charged, turn on your smartphone or tablet's bluetooth and open the app. Follow the instructions to easily connect Darkside to the app. Good luck naming it, it wasn't liking any of the awesome names we gave it so it ended up being called "Darkside". Once you get past that, practice and test your ability to control Darkside.

Small in size, Darkside makes up for it in speed and durability. Don't worry if it bumps into a few obstacles while you practice your tricks. Ollie Darkside is made for ages 8+ or those like us who are still kids at heart! :)
