With on board battery and R/C, you can test it on the carpet.

Not likely that it will jump up 200' and land on the track then.

Unless (like me) you forget to set the "trim" on the Xmitter and then the loco creeps off the turntable into the "dirt canyon" before you can grab it (or anything else)! In 1:35 scale, that canyon is 140 feet deep. However, the backshop can make things OK again.
