There is no better time to get into RC than right now. Maybe you’ve been considering it for some time now, or maybe you’ve been put off by the high cost of actually getting into the RC hobby.

If that’s the case, how about listening to these 5 reasons to get into RC hobby.

1. Affordable

I know things are expensive these days, and taking up a hobby might seem like a bad idea, especially when money is tight.

But there are so many cheap and affordable options out there that make it possible for anyone to get into RC. Some of the most popular brands in the RC industry include Traxxas, Armor, Team Associated, and Tamiya.

Although I’m a huge Traxxas fanboy, I understand that not everyone can afford to pay such excessive prices. Some companies even charge hundreds of dollars for their basic models. That’s why we consider cheap Chinese alternatives.

So, don’t let high costs deter you from pursuing your passion for RC cars. Even if you start out with a cheaper model and then work your way up to something from one of the more expensive brands, RC is now more affordable than ever.

2. Stress Relief

Life can be stressful, and after a long week, you may need to unwind. What better way than to charge up your RC cars and head out for a bash?

You could even meet up with a few friends, as RC is so much better when there are more people involved.

3. Family Fun

RC cars provide an ideal opportunity for families to create stronger bonds among family members. Whether you’re racing them in an open area or trying to do jumps or skills at home, everyone in the family will enjoy themselves.

Proper maintenance is necessary for RC cars and you can teach children valuable life skills that will help them become responsible adults.

Although children need adult guidance to operate and maintain a car, they will eventually learn how to do it independently.

Moreover, RC cars require keen attention and the ability to maintain hand-eye coordination.

Children can quickly develop hand-eye coordination by using RC cars, and as they get used to the controls, they can run the car at a quicker speed or even upgrade it to make it faster.

It’s crucial to involve young ones in RC cars if we want to keep this hobby alive for many years to come. We can pass on this passion to the next generation by encouraging their interest in RC cars.

4. Creativity

When it comes to radio control, there are limitless ways to be creative.

While buying a ready-to-run(RTR) car is the best option for new people, building your own RC car kit is another exciting option to consider.

One of the advantages of building a kit is that it helps you understand what goes where and why.

As a result, you’ll know exactly how to take the car apart and put it back together again when it comes to repairs. This makes kits an excellent choice for beginners who enjoy a challenge.

About the RC car kit, my recommended brand is Tamiya.

Tamiya is a great brand for those who are new to the hobby and want to try building a kit for the first time.

Tamiya has been in the business for years and is well-known for being beginner-friendly. Their manuals are incredibly detailed, making it easier for beginners to understand everything about the car.

5. Fun

The most compelling reason to get into RC is the fun factor. RC cars are incredibly entertaining, whether you enjoy crawling or speed runs. This hobby has something for everyone, making it a perfect choice for those looking for an exciting and enjoyable pastime.
