If you are considering getting into the world of radio controlled vehicles, you are about to enter one of the funnest activities imaginable that provides endless possibilities of challenges and excitement. While it may seem like the RC circuit is a very surface level industry, there are actually many technicalities if you wish to get deeply involved and be able to enjoy this awesome activity at its fullest.

The first thing you will need to decide on is what type of RC model machine are you most interested in getting into. From cars, trucks, motorcycles, planes, helicopters, quadcopters, boats, and anything and everything in between, the world of RC machines is full of different things to tap into.

Another important aspect of the RC world is what level do you wish to be involved in. From hobby RC to racing RC, there are many levels of the radio controlled machine world to be involved in. Hobby RC is a great way to initially get involved, meet some great people, and have a great way to spend down time you have. In the realm of RC racing however, the levels get all the way in to the professional experience where people make careers out of it. While anyone can get to this level, getting started in local club is a great way to get your feet wet and see if RC racing is for you.

Tremor SG

If you have chosen to go with RC cars, this is an activity that has thousands of varieties and allows you to choose what is best for you and your wants from the hobby of RC. One of the biggest differences in RC cars is selecting whether you want a nitro powered RC car or electric. The engine is what sets these apart from one another. With a nitro RC car, these machines are ran off a methanol based fuel, much like gasoline powered your full size vehicle. While these can pack a little more punch, there are typically more expensive. If electric is the route you are wanting to go, this is a great option for a starting machine. The Redcat Racing Tremor SG 1/16 Scale Electric Buggy is an outstanding model for those just getting started out. Powered by a battery pack, these are much easier to get a grasp on if you are in the beginning stages.

Do some research and find out what you would be most interested in when getting into the RC world. Trying out some different options is a great way to see what you like the most.
