All around the world, every day, hobbyists from all walks of life gather at flying fields, local race tracks, hobby shops, or even their backyards to take part in one of the most exciting hobbies in around - welcome to the world of Radio Control, RC or R/C. This is a hobby that combines high-tech electronics, the thrill of flying or driving something you built, and the bond of good friends with a shared passion.
The Radio Control hobby has come a long way. Advances in miniaturized electronics, longer lasting battery technology, and improved manufacturing techniques have made getting started easier and less expensive than ever. In fact, for a fraction of the price of a new video game console, hobbyists could buy a small radio control airplane, helicopter, car, truck, or boat that comes out of the box completely built and ready to run (RTR) with a controller, batteries, and a charger. For those that have enjoyed driving or racing their cars and trucks, many of the aircraft are designed to be easy enough for anyone to fly, even if you've never flown before.
So, what do you want to do?
When looking at the Radio Control industry as a whole, this is just the tip of the iceberg. The world of RC hobbies truly is much larger than you could possibly imagine.
