Types of RC models

  • Cars - for beginners, assembled with an electric motor; models with combustion engines are available for advanced users
  • Aircraft - with radio control for beginners, made of foam materials; advanced users can choose from models with more powerful engines
  • Helicopters - stable, with two counter-rotating rotors for beginners and single-rotor for experienced users
  • Ships - with electric motors for beginners and gasoline engines for advanced users

 

Three types of engine

  • No engine - sailboats, gliders
  • Electric motor - low maintenance and fuel demands, ideal for beginners
  • Combustion engine - more powerful, faster, noisier, with higher fuel consumption and demanding maintenance

Frequency

RC models operate on the following frequencies:

  • 27 MHz - for any RC model, have to select the channel and keep an eye on whether someone is not broadcasting on the same channel
  • 35 MHz - only for aircraft models, lower potential interference
  • 40 MHz - for any RC model, have to select the channel and keep an eye on whether someone is not broadcasting on the same channel
  • 2.4 GHz - popular frequency for all models, the channel is automatically occupied and safeguarded against interference

Remote Control Models

Remote Control Models

RC models (or remote-controlled models) are a dream come true not only for children but also for many parents. A typical RC model consists of a set that includes a controller and a receiver. Both are used to control the model remotely. Let’s take a look at how to choose the right one for you or your kids.

Designation

Models differ depending on their focus: you can find models for beginners and for more advanced users. The two categories differ in their control complexity, size, engine type, and price. Generally speaking, models for beginners are simpler and cheaper.

Motor type

Aside from the few exceptions that don’t use any motor at all (e.g. sailboats and gliders), RC models generally use internal combustion engines and electric motors. Both types have their pros and cons. Internal combustion engines are authentic, powerful, and enable greater speeds. Their disadvantages include more demanding maintenance, high noise levels, and fuel consumption. Electric motors need no fuel and require very little maintenance, making them ideal for beginners.

RC model types

Cars, boats, planes, tanks, helicopters. Just choose whether you would prefer to drive, sail, or fly.

Cars: Beginners should start with a pre-assembled model, equipped with a radio and an electric motor. More advanced users can enjoy faster drives at speeds reaching 100 km/h using combustion engine models.

Aircraft: Once again, beginners should start with a radio-controlled pre-assembled model. These basic models are made of foam materials that are sufficiently durable and flexible at the same time. Advanced aircraft for the more experienced users have more delicate handling, powerful motors, and some models even require some tweaking after buying.

Helicopters: For newcomers we recommend models with two counter-rotating rotors that give them extra stability and make them easier to control. Advanced helicopter models are usually single-rotor, which makes their controls considerably more sensitive.

Ships: The same general rule as with the previous types - electric motor models for the beginners and combustion engines for the advanced users. If you are using a combustion engine model, pay close attention to your fuel reserves, especially on long test drives. Otherwise, your ship could end up getting stranded in the middle of the lake.

Frequency

RC models use several frequencies reserved exclusively for RC hobbyists, but there are still certain rules that must be observed (make sure you don’t broadcast on the same channel as somebody else).

  • 27 MHz - for all RC models; just select the channel and make sure you’re the only one using it
  • 35 MHz - only for aircraft models; lower interference potential
  • 40 MHz - for all RC models; just select the channel and make sure you’re the only one using it
  • 2.4 GHz - a popular frequency for all models; the channel is reserved automatically and is safeguarded against interference

Packaging

RC model sets differ depending on whether they already have everything you need (these are marked as RTR and RTF - Ready To Ride/Fly), or whether you still have to purchase additional accessories (transmitter, transmitter & receiver, battery). In some cases you may even need to additionally purchase the necessary electronics. You can also buy disassembled parts (so-called kits) and build the model yourself.

Range

Can be between several meters and hundreds of meters, depending on the technology, frequency, manufacturer, and model type.
