What’s the quickest, easiest way to get started in R/C?

If you hear the word “model” and picture a box filled with small parts, you haven’t seen a “Ready-to-Run” (RTR) model. Some RTR cars, trucks, and boats come so complete, you just add fuel or a battery and you’re ready to race. “Ready-to-Fly” (RTF) planes that take as little as 20 minutes to make flight-ready are also available.

For first-time hobbyists, RTRs offer many advantages in addition to saving time. For example, you know your model has been assembled correctly. It looks like something a skilled hobbyist put together… you’ll be proud to show it off. Key accessories like the engine and radio are usually already included… so you have almost everything you need in the right sizes and styles with just one simple purchase.

You can expect to buy a few small additional items when you choose an RTR, such as fuel or batteries. But you won’t need a well-equipped workshop, special building tools, or mechanical know-how… just the urge to get out and have a great time!
