Gotta start somewhere...

By: Tim Gluth

One of the reasons I got into this hobby was to share the experience with my kids.  While I'd love to set them both up (well, at least my oldest son) with hobby-grade R/C vehicles, I want them to get into things the same way I did...through toy-grade radio-controlled vehicles.

I'll admit that toy-grade R/C vehicles can be a little frustrating, for many reasons.  They often lack the speed, power, turning radius, and performance parts that hobby-grade vehicles come equipped with.  I've spent more time fetching my kid's cars from the yard or  mulch bed than I have running my own vehicle, but the truth is, they're learning.  Add to that the low-cost of these vehicles, it's easy to get one or two vehicles and not feel a huge hit to your wallet.  Here's a little video action of my oldest son's favorite R/C vehicle; a Jeep Rubicon from New Bright.
