The best place to start is a trainer or glider. Both are inexpensive, easy to fly and more crash resistant. They can be flown at slower speeds giving you more time to think and correct any pilot errors. Scale planes are realistic replicas of real planes such as the famous Cessna and Piper and look fantastic. Then there are 3D stunt planes which are great fun. These are highly maneuverable and capable of pulling off amazing tricks in the right hands. Finally there are the War birds. These planes are replicas of the famous WW2 fighter planes and some come complete with mini replica pilots and accessories.
Like a real jet, these radio controlled versions do not have propellers and instead use a ducted fan to produce the power. These ducted fans produce a jet of air providing more thrust than a propeller powered plane and, coupled with the streamlined design of the jet, this makes them capable of extremely high flight speeds. Some of them are capable of flying at over 100km/h! RC jets are usually not categorized by the size of the wingspan or length, but rather by the diameter of the ducted fan (known as the EDF), although generally speaking the larger the fan the bigger and faster the jet will be. The trainer jets are easier to fly than the scale replica ones which are all about the same in terms of flying difficulty (although the larger ones fly a little quicker making them a little more difficult) so the decision on which to choose comes down to budget and design preference.
These tanks are great fun with working independent tracks and real BB firing gun. Like real tanks they are capable of climbing steep surfaces, going through tough terrain like mud or sand and getting over obstacles. As well as being able to control the movement of the tank you can also control the movement of the turret and then press the fire button to shoot a 6mm BB pellet. The tracks have working suspension to further improve their off road ability. Available in various sizes from the smallest 1:24 scale up to the biggest being 1:16 scale.
At Nitrotek we only sell hobby grade boats. These are much faster and fun than the ones sold in toy stores. The first thing to consider when buying an RC boat is whether you need a Kit, ARR or RTR. RTR boats have everything included so if you don't have any of your own equipment then this is the type to go for. ARR ones have everything included apart from the radio equipment. If you already have a 2CH radio set from say an RC car then you can save some money by buying an ARR boat. Kit versions come with everything apart from motor, ESC, battery, charger, transmitter and receiver. Again if you already have these items then you can save a lot by purchasing a Kit. If you choose RTR or ARR you must decided between brushed or brushless. Brushless are much more expensive but much quicker. The good thing about a brushed version is that you can easily upgrade it to brushless later. If for example you buy someone a brushed boat as a gift, on the next occasion you could buy them a brushless motor set. Another thing to consider is the size. In general the medium and large ones are faster than the small ones but they need more space to use them. The small ones are cheaper, easier to transport and the ones we sell which are all hobby grade are still very fast. They are the best choice if you want to use in a pool. The medium sized ones are very fast and the most popular as they are more affordable than the large ones. The large ones are popular for hobby enthusiasts who want the very best and have access to large lakes to race them on.
