Wether it be hobby or toy grade it’s really easy to have fun with an RC car or truck. The true RC hobbyists though, they take the time to develop driving skills and usually have an awesome collection of cars to go with those skills. With that being said, every true hobbyist has to start somewhere and that is precisely where this article will focus.
So you have decided it’s finally time to get into that Rc hobby you’ve been thinking about. Well the good news is that it is pretty easy to do just that. The Ready-to-Run choices are almost endless. A Ready-to-Run model comes with everything you need in the box to take that new ride and go ahead and knock the new off. A Ready-to-Run model is hands down the best place for a beginner to start.
Since you are looking for beginner models I would say it is very important to stick with the electric models. While fuel powered Rc Vehicle are awesome it brings a little complication that I think a beginner should avoid at least till you get a good feel for driving and then add some of the more complicated aspects of the hobby.
The type of RC vehicle you choose is very dependent on what kind of terrain you will be driving on mostly. I think trucks are a good starting point because of versatility. A truck or monster truck can be driven on just about any terrain. Rough surfaces or pavement and even grass. A buggy is also a good starting place for a beginner with its ability to cover a wide array of land.
I think that the Redcat blackout series of cars are great starter cars. They are durable and have plenty of power to be fun to drive. I personally started out with a monster truck and I think it was a great place to start my RC journey. I didn’t start with the Dukono but I think is a great way to get started with the durability that the dukono. If you are like me and have a couple of those little bumps and bruises in the beginning the Dukono is capable of taking a pretty good beating. Over all the choice is yours and there are plenty of choices out there.
