RC cars Quick Charger

Chargers, Spares & Accessories from Modelsport UK

Often times it can be difficult to know what to look for if you are buying an RC car for the first time, whetheryou arepurchasing one as a gift for a friend or family member. How do you tell what the battery requirements are, and what is the difference between the models? Which car is best for my needs? These are important considerations no matter who you are buyingfor, so below we have answered some of the frequently asked questions that might be useful to keep in mind whenbuying one of these Fast & Furious RC cars.

How good is the battery life and remote range?

First off, the cars and remotes do not come with pre-packaged batteries and so you will need to buy some along with the car itself. Most of the units will need at least 4 AA batteries for the carand a further 2 AA batteries for the remote. The battery requirements vary depending on the power of the vehicle and the type of terrain you use it on – if you are climbing hills and rocks with one of the off-road models, it is likely that the battery will drain more quickly than if you simply drive along flat frictionless surfaces. The likelihood is that you will get an average of about 30 – 40 minutes of play out of a set ofregular batteries. We recommend purchasing rechargeable batteries that you can use again and again, which will save you money in the long run.There are also testaments fromcustomers who have replaced the standard stock batteries with lithium ion batteries to extend the power and play time of these cars, but we would recommend caution here. Only modify these vehicles if you are a professional and know what you are doing, they will be perfect for casual use right out of the box.

The remote range is quite short, but as these are rather inexpensive items you would expect a range of about 9 – 10 m (30 ft). Other remote controlled vehicles like the RC helicopters or drones will have far greater range, some up to 170ft (50m), but they also come at a higher price and have much more sophisticatednavigation and control systems.There are ways to boost your range that require modification to the remote itself, or you could purchase a separate remote that will work on the same frequency as the car you have. You will need to check the frequency in the details of the product before you do this. We like to think that having a bit of a jog down the road while you drive is a small price to pay forpiloting one of these awesome little cars.

Whatare the size and quality like?

Well, they certainly aren’t as large asa Land Rover that can be controlled by smartphone remote, but they do measure between 1/20th and 1/24th scale – that is around 7.5 X 3 X 2.5.The product information on Amazon always tells you the exact dimensions of the product, so you can compare these to some physical measurements of your own if you’re looking for a particular size. The detailing on these cars is also of avery high quality, which makes them great as miniaturecollector’s pieces. They are also not too expensive if you are building up a collection, because the non radio controlledstatic models are made frommore expensive materials – they may look better, but they can’t scoot down the roadto race against a friend.Thismeans that the radio control versions of these cars are much cheaper, and you could pick up both the off-road and superchargedversions of the Dodge Charge if you liked, oreven go for the whole collection if you wanted.
