There are a number of radio controlled aeroplanes and boats available. Each of them comes with unique features and accessories that will make them exciting to use, and when you take the time to explore all the options you have, you will clearly see how remarkable these models are.
Radio Controlled Aeroplanes
To begin with there are four major types of radio controlled aeroplanes. They are Gliders, Jets, Planes and Trainer Planes. Each is uniquely different and can provide you with something that you can enjoy either alone or with your child.
We will begin by looking at a glider. The 3CH Thunderbird glider is the first model that deserves attention. It comes complete with everything you will need to fly this remarkable glider. It comes bundled with a 4CH remote that will allow you to upgrade to a better model down the road.
It is a shock resistant unit, and has wings that are durable. It can fly fast or slow, depending on your preference, and you can cut the power at anytime and it will continue to glide. This can be a fun trick to do, especially when your battery life is running low.
Next, we should take a look at jets. These are similar in a sense to the other aeroplanes, but think of them as the next step up from the gliders we just look at. They will have some similar features, but they are a bit more durable.
Take for example the 4 CH Blue Angel model. It comes to you 90% assembled, so you don’t have to worry about spending a considerable amount of time trying to get it together before you can take it out. It utilizes a smaller fan to help keep the weight down, but it is effective in terms of helping to prevent your aeroplane from overheating.
Best of all is the transmitter on the unit. It has a very powerful 2.4G transmitter that is designed to do some of the more amazing acrobatic tricks that you see the full sized Blue Angels do. More importantly, it comes complete with powerful batteries that are designed to store and hold a great amount of power so you can fly these planes for a long time.
Radio controlled planes are similar to the jets we just mentioned. They will give you the look and feeling of a full size plane, but are compact enough that you can fly them anywhere. One such plane is the 3CH Jaguar model that comes dressed in full military paint, and is one you and your children can certainly admire.
It has the ability to go up to 300m and fly for about 15 minutes when you have it fully charged. Best of all, this exciting model has the ability to become airborne directly off the ground, or from your own hands. This makes it one of the more accurate models that you will find for radio controlled aeroplanes.
For some, the initial investment that comes into play for the aeroplanes can be unnerving, and you may want to try a cheaper model out before you spend a great deal of money. The 2CH Art-Tech QQ-Dragon is a great option. This is one of the trainer planes that allow you to get a feeling for how these planes work, and to become comfortable with using them.
This model comes prepared for the novice flyer. There is nothing for you to build from the box, and it can fly in small indoor areas as well as outside. For those who have limited yard space, this can be a fun way to experience the radio controlled world.
Most important, is the fact it is damage resistant. With a rubber nose, and durable parts, this is one plane that you can be comfortable with the whole family practicing with. In fact, it is the great first model for younger children getting interested in aeroplanes.
Radio Controlled Boats
Just like aeroplanes, we have radio controlled boats as well. This latter model can be broken down into two different types. Electric Boats and Hovercrafts, and the one you end up choosing will most likely depend on what you will be using your new model for.
Take for example the 1/12 scale Queen2 High Performance boat. It comes equipped with a full radio remote control and a way for the motor to be cooled by the water that passes through it. With a vector push design, it allows for easy control with 3 of the most powerful racing motors you will find.
If ease of use and power are the most important aspects of the radio controlled boats you are looking at, then this is likely one of the best models for your needs. In fact, if you are looking to professional race these boats, there wouldn’t be a better choice for you.
As you might be aware, a hovercraft is a form of boat that rests on the water and it is a hybrid of both a plane and a boat. You will use your rudders to have it glide forward on the water surface, and for the beginner to radio controlled boats, this could be the best choice you will have available to you. In fact, it can run well on any surface as long as it doesn’t have too many bumps on it.
No matter what you are looking for, be it radio controlled aeroplanes, or radio controlled boats, they can prove to be the perfect tool for family bonding, or a great way to spend some free time while you are away from work or school. Consider picking one up, and see what it can bring to your life.
