Xiaomi Mitu racing car (900+ parts) for $79.39

Hey, guys! Just a heads up: The linked offer is already a bit older and the price of the gadget might have changed or it might not be available anymore.

There is a new model of Xiaomis Mitu building blocks series. This is a racing car made of 900 individual parts, which is again compatible with the Mitu app and is equipped with motor and remote control. There is also a beach buggy with 500 parts.

Mitu Racing Car at AliExpress for $79.39

Mitu Beach Buggy at AliExpress for $34.92

At first glance, the offers at AliExpress do not look like Xiaomi. Too often, retailers label their items with the name “Xiaomi”, even if there is little or no connection to the Chinese company. However, a second glance shows that Mitu blocks are used here and that the app belonging to them is also that of Xiaomi. Both models can already be found on Xiaomi’s own platform Xiaomiyoupin. So you can speak here of successors of the Mitu series.

Both models, the racing car and the beach buggy, can be set up again with the help of the app. But it is also questionable whether there will be a classic printed manual. Only building up the app with the help of instructions is not everyone’s cup of tea.

The racing car consists of over 900 parts and is motorized. So it takes 4-5 hours to set up the car, then you can control it remotely with the smartphone app. The smaller (and cheaper) buggy consists of about 500 parts and has no engine.

After our consistently good experiences with the Xiaomi building blocks, we are optimistic here as well. So far, the stones have always been of very good quality and the instructions clear and easy to follow. But the price is also pleasing. While the AliExpress racing car is currently available for around $80, the beach buggy costs only $37.

After joining the team in late 2015 I quickly fell in love with aerial photography. Today I review most of our drones. I'm also interested in gaming related gadgets.

    Is the steering linear or full on/off?

      Since it is not the typical 'Power System' motor and remote but Xiaomi's own motor and app control, I'm assuming that it is indeed linear.
      Haven't tried this one out though and cannot say for sure.
