What to look for in RC trucks for Cyber Monday
There are a lot of options for RC trucks that you can buy online. If you’ve never bought one before, you may be wondering about which truck is best and what to look for. Here are Dronethusiast’s top tips for what to look for this Cyber Monday when shopping for an RC truck.
Battery life is a huge part of any RC toy. You want to make sure that you are getting a good amount of driving time for the amount of money you’re spending. The average battery life of an RC truck is around 15 minutes so keep this is mind when shopping. You may want to consider buying an extra battery life or two if the RC truck you want has a shorter driving time.
Speed is another thing shoppers should definitely consider when looking for RC trucks. If you are hoping to drive your truck on pavement, you probably want an RC truck that goes pretty fast, at least 30 mph. However, if off-roading and rock-crawling are more your style you won’t need an RC truck to reach high speeds. This will help you control it as you are using it.
An RC truck’s motor and speed go hand in hand. RC trucks will either have a brushed or brushless motor. A brushed motor is best if you’re not needing to go as fast and want a truck that can climb through rocks and obstacles and drive on difficult terrains. However, if you’re hoping to be the fastest RC driver out there you will want an RC truck with a brushless motor for the best and fastest speeds.
Always set a budget when buying an RC truck. There are many different categories of RC trucks that range in price. If you’re a beginner or buying for someone who is, sticking to a more affordable RC truck is probably the way to go. However, more experienced drivers may enjoy having a more expensive RC truck.
