Best Robot Car Toys
Hobby grade radio controlled devices are meant for the serious enthusiast. These devices are simple in their design and can be remodeled, serviced and reused. The material is durable and the items are usually custom made. More often these devices need to be assembled, but the stores may deliver the assembled piece if you so wish.
A serious hobbyist will always prefer to buy the kit and do the assembling himself. This is in itself a creative art that the hobbyists indulge in, apart from participating in various competitions. There are sporting events held for the RC enthusiasts that have their own rules for the game.
The various types of radio controlled toys available presently are described below:
- Airplanes. The RC airplane is available in various shapes and sizes, from a gas turbine driven models to the smaller flyers. They can be tied to a pole with the help of a rope or they can be free flying. They can be fuel-driven or electrically propelled and the latest models can even reach speeds of 250mph. Since the RC airplanes are complex toys they require some amount of control and knowledge of flying. Therefore, adult supervision is required during flying and they are not suitable for very young children. The airborne RC models are among the most expensive and a crash may result in damages that may prove to be very costly.
- RC Cars. Cars are the most common and the most popular among the RC toys. The cars are either fuel-driven or electrically powered. These can be operated even by children and are much safer compared to airborne devices. The RC cars may be used in on-road or off-road RC car races. The RC car models come in various sizes and shapes.
- RC Helicopters. This is another airborne device. However, its design and a flying pattern are different from that of an airplane. Some enthusiasts prefer it to the airplane as they claim it to be much more interesting for flying. The same factors of airplanes apply to helicopters too.
- RC Boat. The first radio-controlled toy to be created was a boat as demonstrated by Tesla. He showed the public, a boat that obeyed people’s command. In reality, he was remotely controlling the boat.
