May 29, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 186

What is so great about electric? The "no fuss" play value. No fighting with tuning your engines or buying fuel. Charge the battery-and go! And even the youngsters can get into it with no problem. Most radio control nowadays is ready to run. For those enthusiasts who want to build there a still kits around.

Electric airplanes can be flown just about anyplace and... there are replacement wings, tails, etc for your plane. If you do not feel like finding a big park there are now backyard airplanes. Small and easy to fly! Buy a trainer plane to begin with. Trainers are made of hard Styrofoam and have wings on the top of the plane to make it stable and catch the wind. Once you feel comfortable flying your trainer plane you can go onto low wing or bi-planes.

Beginners, intermediate, and advanced helicopters are easy to find in electric. Even children as young as eight years old can fly a trainer helicopter with little practice. You can start with a small one for only indoors or a larger one to fly outdoors and indoors. Make sure you buy the hobby quality which have better electronics and have parts availability.

The most popular item for youngsters 6 and up is the electric cars. It is suggested to get an offroad truck for a youngster to take in the grass and dirt and beat the cars up without worry.

To begin the youngster in the radio control cars it is suggested to buy a truck with a brushed motor which will run about 30mph. Some of the brands even have a step down switch on the controller to bring the speed down to about 20mph so the younger child can get used to running the car.

When he/she gets bored with 30mph change to a brushless motor and go up to about 50mph. A brushless motor has magnets inside instead of brushes. No wear and much faster.

There are trucks and buggies that will come with brushless motors already installed. And the new lines of batteries of nickel metal hydride and li-po batteries makes for more run time and more speed

For those interested in racing nowadays there is also onroad, short course and even drift cars.

Try the new electrics and you will have tons of fun!

If you buy hobby quality radio control you can find parts and even upgrades in a hobby store or on a reputable hobby store website.
