Product Description

Ultimate control over your Power Functions creations! Build a Power Functions IR receiver, battery box and motors into your LEGO creations, then use this handy remote control to start, stop, change direction and more! The Power Functions IR Remote Control system operates on 4 different channels enabling the use of 4 models being controlled at the same time. Control up to 8 different Power Functions with one remote by connecting 2 Power Functions to 4 different receivers each. The reaching distance of the infra-red RC system is at least 30' (10m). Requires IR Receiver (Item #8884), not included. Requires 3 AAA (1.5V) batteries, not included.

To be able to understand why LEGO has been successful for so long, just look to the name. LEGO originally got its name from founder Ole Kirk Christiansen who combed the Danish words "Leg Got" which means "play well". He later realized that LEGO in Latin translates to "I put together. The LEGO set became a standard of creative play for children worldwide, unlocking the creativity to build vehicles, buildings, cities and more. Historians point to the invention of the wheel as a major turning point in world history. The invention of the LEGO wheel had the same monumental effect in the history of LEGO, making it possible to create cars, trucks and eventually the LEGO train building set that is one of the most successful LEGO sets of all time. LEGO currently produces about 20 billion LEGO bricks a year and has sold over 400 billion LEGOs in their history -- enough for every person on the planet to have over 60 LEGOs each!

DO NOT use Duracell, for some reason they just don't work. It's an odd thing to have to say, but, I got this item brand new off the website, plugged in brand new batteries, Duracell, and, Nothing, Nada, Zip, Zilch. Hit the controls and the green light didn't so much as flicker. (Batteries were brand new) Went to the store, grabbed some Rayovac Batteries, plugged them in, and works great! No clue why... It's just a thing... get other batteries and you'll be fine!

Any sort of sun light will disable the controller. Only works outside when it is dark and travels a couple meters before loosing control. Only use this indoor in places with little or no sunlight. I think this is the v2 reciver but I don't think the v1 wouldent do any better...

This remote is a nice change from the other more complex one that Lego makes. Sometimes you don't need all that complexity. It's also a really great size for kids.

Tip for Power Functions

By KarynC

from Calgary

Comments about LEGO Power Functions IR TX (8885):

I ordered 3 of the power functions for my son for Christmas. Couldn't get this one to work, phoned the help line; turns out Duracell brand batteries tend not to work in Lego battery-powered items. Switched to another brand and voila, works like a charm!
