Product Description

CHOKING HAZARD - Small parts. Not for children under 3 yrs.

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!

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!

Great remote control

By prophetofdoom

from Undisclosed

Comments about LEGO Power Functions IR TX (8885):

This handset works very well for anything except trains, because of its lack of speed control. For cars and other non-variable contraptions, this remote would be a great starter to RC Lego. Controls are very simple and easy to learn. Extremely easy to use and reasonably priced, I recommend this set to every Lego fan!

Comments about LEGO Power Functions IR TX (8885):

i have one of these and 2 ir reicvers and like four regular motors along with a train motor and some lights so i have a lot of these and i think if you are going to complain it only has one speed then make a gear clutch system that can change speed i did this with one motor and a bunch of gears and it works great so i have no need for the more expensive speed remote Bring me the horizon signing out!

IR Remote

By Ehlek333Xpictures

from Here.

Comments about LEGO Power Functions IR TX (8885):

I bought $41 worth of power functions (three items!), this was one of them. I only experienced two problems: one, you can't control the speed and two, it's overpriced. The four channels are great. You can go forward and reverse, but at only one speed. And of course it would be completely useless if you don't have an IR Receiver. If you're going to make a vehicle, I would suggest the IR Speed Remote. Extremely useful, but way overpriced. Pros: Forward and reverse. Four channels. It only uses power when you're using it. Cons: Overpriced. Only one speed. This is a great remote for controlling anything with tracks, but since there's only one speed, it wouldn't be good for anything with wheels.
