The holidays are bearing down and its time to start thinking about gifts for your friends and family. RC (radio controlled) vehicles are fun for all ages! Ready-to-run (RTR) cars and trucks, ready-to-fly (RTF) planes, helicopters and DRONES are inexpensive and just take a few minutes to set-up and charge before they’re ready to rip up the dirt or take to the sky. For this holiday season we decided to put together a gift guide to help you shop for vehicles and aircraft that are perfect for a beginner’s skill level and wallet.
