Where do i start????

Recommended Posts

Now that I committed my self to this RC Car club, I have a few hundred questions:

1. Can i get a decent rc kit fo under aed 500?

2. Where can i get this.

3. Idealy, I want to assemble it. Is that a good move or do you suggest buy one off the shelf?

 

Gaurav Bhai if this works the next club will be for RC gliders...they will be awesome  to fly from the top of dunes- as long as we can land them she somewhere  safely.

Try something like this 625 dhs to get you started. It’s RTR (ready to run) which means what it says, it’s ready to run, meaning built. All you have to do is charge the batteries and go. 

If you want to get into Nitro powered stuff, it starts around 3-4K dhs. It’s a lot more fun but requires a bit of technical knowledge to keep them running. 

When you have a bit of experience you can start buying components and modify your own or buy a chassis and start building. 

Id recommend starting out with traxxas stuff. It’s good quality.

Seems like barry has enough knowledge on this subject.

Im highly interested in this hobby, can you please explain some basic knowledge on RC cars and clear few doubts:

  • Standard battery version last for how long (traxxas or whatever)? And how long they take to charge? Do they come in the removable battery option to stick spare when you want to play more?
  • What is the nitro option? Is it same as running on petrol type of fuel? What is the drive time of such option cars?
  • Is the nitro are the one that makes hell of a noise and produce noticeable smoke too as seen in some places from a distance?

PS: Im still at very basic level of buying my car RC models from off the shelf. The most frustrating part of these is the super limited playtime of less than 8-10 mins with prime performance and charge time of over an hour, that kills the whole mood.

I am by no means an expert. I’ve messed about with RC stuff in the past but I’ve never got too deep into it, just a basic working knowledge.

A well maintained battery on a mid-high end car should give you at the minimum 30 minutes play time. 

Charging time can be 1 hour or it can be 8 hours. It just depends on the battery capacity. Batteries are removable so it’s always a good idea to have a spare or 2. 

The nitros are the noisy smokey ones. They’re little 2 stroke engines. Nitro fuel is a blend of methanol, nitromethane and lubricants. Because it is a 2 stroke engine and has no oil sump, the lubricants in the fuel protect the moving parts and this lubricant is what creates the smoke.

Sorry, dragon mart special but it has one feature. The only RC car in the world with variable window tints.
