MICRO RC CARS
There are a lot of places on the net with sale of micro RC cars. Good
things come in small packages. So if one wants to have some fun with
RC cars in budgeted space and means Micro RC cars are good options.
It would not be fair enough to pin down to a particular model being
the best. Each car has own strengths and weaknesses. It you need to
choose about buying and RC car it depends mainly on your choice, budgets
Hobbico microsizers also known as Tomy Bit Char-G in Japan are small
sized inexpensive and durable models with lots of mods. But they have
limited range, short driving time and only four available frequencies
with no proportional steering. These micro sizers can be great fun as
races for them can be set up in small spaces like kitchen floor. Although
these do not have proportional steering and a short run time but nevertheless
they give good time for a race. They simply use a pack of AA batteries.
The standard controllers are not sophisticated but are adequate. If
required booster controllers can be purchased separately.
Takara Digi Q models are durable and very small with a good quality
controller, proportional steering and longer driving time. They use
two motors to control speed and steering. Thus at corners this car tends
to go slow because if you want to turn right the right motor slows down.
It sends its signals via Infrared instead of frequency to control the
car. Thus the car does not handle well. The controller of this car feels
solid in your hands and you can electronically switch between high and
low speeds. These cars usually come in cartoon looking bodies.
Epoch Indoor Racers have proportional steering and racing speeds and
more realistic body designs. These cars require larger racing areas
as they have poorly designed controllers. They are more expensive and
limited mods along with after market parts. It is a bit larger for a
most of the micro remote controlled cars. The speed and responsiveness
makes it fun for drivers who do not mind paying a little more for micro
remote controlled cars.
Kyosho Mini Z Street racers and Kyosho Mini Z Formula 1 are like real
racers. All the electronics components in them are pre-installed. They
also have many clubs all across the globe. This makes these models very
popular. Their bodies have surprising details and cool parts that are
easily available. They are approximately six inches in length.
HPI Micro RS4 is approximately nine inches in the length. It is lot
bigger and more real. Therefore it tends to be more expensive. Further,
its radio and electronics have to be separately purchased.
Micro remote control cars have one advantage of not having a longer
down time with batteries as compared over other bigger models. If you
charge your batteries multiple times then they give a longer run. This
does not mean doing the ritual ten-fifteen times but two or three times
is sufficient. Most of the micro remote control cars come with NiCad
batteries but it is better to go with NiMAH batteries, as they don’t
seem to have memory problems that typically plague the NiCad batteries.
Moreover, they also accept multi-charging better. This is the reason
that micro remote control cars get a longer run time.
