Default Re: (RC car) Looking for best battery and charger

I was lucky to get most of my cars for next to nothing. I was friends with a rich Jewish kid in the neighborhood. When he got board with a cars he'd sell them to me for ~$50, with the electronics. This used to piss his mom off so bad, but she always bought him a new car every time. I also did a lot of trading with the local hobby shop, so I always had a bunch of stuff to play with. Then I got board and sold them all off. Today they have race clubs so it at least keeps you in the hobby.

Default Re: (RC car) Looking for best battery and charger

All these cars are missing a few bits...

A fuel tank

An engine

A tuned pipe

They do have one advantage though - you can run electric almost anywhere. Petrol cars you have to accomodate people in the surrounding area, but on a saturday with weed whackers, lawn mowers etc going it shouldnt be a problem (unless your model has an unusually loud "ringy" tuned exhaust)

from a 26 cc car you can get around 30 minutes runtime on a single tank of gas. How long do you get on LiPo's. I get 10 minutes flying time out of my chopper on 22.2v 3000mah lipo's.

What are some famous R/C forums? I'm looking to dive in to r/c helicopters + planes and I don't really know where to start.

Default Re: (RC car) Looking for best battery and charger

In the end I ordered this one




Thank you for your feedback. Have to spread some love around.



Now Im looking for a very simple LED with an ON/OFF switch powered by coin cells to put on the top off the car when its getting dark. Any suggestions would help

Where exactly can you purchase petrol RC cars from in aus? I don't really want to spend half a grand but I want something good

They used to sell them at places like super cheap auto but I don't know what happened.

How about this two functions in one host.

Turn it off during a day, turn it on when dark.
