While it is built to interior display standard, the ability to control movement through your smartphone takes the fun factor to another level.

Kyosho M1A2 Abrams Pocket Armour 1/60 Scale Tank
We bought our first Kyosho pocket tanks (and Mini Z's) almost 15 years ago when we were finishing our PhD's! Yikes! It was a great way to zone out. These new ones are even better---the detail, the maneuverability, the Smartphone hook-up, and, of course, the sounds. It is a great way to zone out as we await promotion and tenure decisions. And being in Washington State, our newly legalized local crop makes playing with them even more fun. And thanks to amain for an effortless purchase, good advice, and quick delivery. Our friends are lining up to get their own---and looking at more goodies.
