Remote control Mini

Any ideas where I can get a decent one for Christmas, not stupidly expensive, maybe around 50. Preferably an R53 but not necessary.

Thanks in advance

Ive tried contacting him but there was no reply, any other ideas?

Does anyone else have one of the above ones? Im just wondering if its the sort that can be run on lots of surfaces not just inside on carpet?

Where did you get them from as this is the cheapest I could find it in the UK.
Is it any good?

I got one off eBay for under 50, great car, awesome details, only problem was that the guy selling them forgot to tell the buyers that it came with a US charger and I now need to find time to get a converter for it so I can charge it back up and have a proper play

But I recommend the product, but just look out where you buy it from

My GF paid 93 including P&P off ebay. Its from the Midlands Model Centres ebay shop and they also have a store in Walsall. Im guessing it comes with the right adaptors for that price otherwise im gonna return it. Im sure I could get it cheaper from America but you have to pay high shipping costs and I dont really like the idea of giving a random site from America my debit cards details.
