5 Hot Gift Ideas For The Holiday Season

Share The Fun Of RC! 

The holidays are upon us, which is a great time to get friends and loved ones involved in RC. Ready-to-run (RTR) cars and trucks, ready-to-fly (RTF) planes and helis are inexpensive and just take a few minutes to set-up. In most cases, you only need to charge a battery pack before they’re ready to rip up the dirt or take to the sky. For this holiday season we decided to put together a short gift guide to make your shopping with A Main Hobbies easy. The products in this guide represent vehicles and aircraft that are perfect for the beginner’s skill level and wallet.


HobbyZone Champ RTF Electric Airplane

The HobbyZone Champ is the perfect beginner’s airplane. Since the Champ only weighs a couple of ounces and can be stowed in the box it comes in, you can take it anywhere. This little plane is perfect for flying at small parks or playing fields. Everything you need to take flight is included. It should also be noted that you can buy replacement parts in case you crash.

Align T-Rex 100X Electric RTF Micro Helicopter

Align’s T-Rex 100X micro heli is completely ready-to-fly from the factory. This capable heli can be flown indoors and it very light wind outdoors. For aspiring pilots the T-Rex 100x is the perfect place to start.



Losi 1/24-scale Micro 4×4 Trail Trekker RTR Micro Crawler

Kids of all ages love Losi’s micro-sized cars and trucks. The Trail Trekker’s scale looks and performance are ideal for someone who wants to get lost on their own adventure. Take the Trial Trekker over obstacles in your home or outside in your planter. This micro crawler is ready-to-run and makes a great holiday gift.


Traxxas Slash 1/10-scale Electric RTR Short Course Truck

Traxxas’ Slash is the most popular RC truck of the last five years because it’s tough, affordable and an excellent first RC truck. The RC short course craze wouldn’t have happened if it weren’t for this truck. Jump it, bash it, drive on dirt or asphalt, this truck can handle what you can dish out.


Team Associated ProLite 4×4 Electric RTR Short Course Truck

Team Associated’s ProLite 4×4 Short Course Truck was just released and has already received rave reviews. The 4WD truck comes pre-built with brushless electronics that push the vehicle to blistering speeds. Because the truck is 4WD it generates more traction and is a little easier for some to drive. The body graphics and KMC styled wheels give this truck                                                                   authentic short course styling.

    Hey I like the site and you have a solid blog but wanted to know why you don’t have posts on RC Boats. Im interested in boating and looking at http://blog.remotorboater.com/p/home-page.html about getting a new boat. Is brushless and brushed motors similar in boats and cars?
