RC vehicles are very popular; some of the most popular include Radio Controlled Tanks. Radio Controlled Tanks are a special type of Remote controlled vehicle which often features fully working gun of some form. The gun will either normally shoot lasers or plastic ball bearings. Radio Controlled Tanks are popular with adults and children alike because they find tanks exciting to work with.

Radio Controlled Tanks are a great way to spend more time with your children. They are often more interesting than other types of RC vehicles and appeal in particular to boys with a passion for modern warfare.

Authentic Models
There are lots of different types and models of Radio Controlled Tanks available, many of these are authentic replicas of real tanks. The attention to detail is very high and they have lots of really useful features. The scale model Snow Leopard tanks for example are very realistic, other tanks are available which are based on designs of tank from all over the world.

Laser Cannons
Some of the most advanced Radio Controlled Tanks use Laser cannons as forms of weapons. These do not fire anything out of them except for a laser. This makes them great fun for fun battles because they can fight against one another.

Sensors on the tanks detect when they are being fired at. This makes it easy to hold full scale wars without needing to put anyone's life in danger.

BB Radio Controlled Tanks
Remote controlled tanks which feature BB guns are often more popular with children. This is because they actually shoot anything and it's possible to shoot at things with them. Plastic BB's should not be dangerous as long as young children don't put them in their mouths and choke on them.

Almost all Radio Controlled Tanks have a movable turret which makes it possible to aim the tank at the target. Firing can be done by pressing a button on the remote control panel.

Some tanks feature lights and sounds to make them more realistic, others will also feature smoke and other effects to make the tank appear much more real. The smoke is normally used to simulate the exhaust from a real tank which would normally be powered using a diesel engine. The smoke is not normally used to make the gun firing look more realistic.

Buying Radio Controlled Tanks which feature more special effects will be slightly more expensive, however the added realism is normally well worth it.

Ready Made
Almost all Radio Controlled Tanks are designed as more of a toy than anything else. They are also fairly complex which means they are generally sold boxed up and ready to use. They do not normally require any major assembly.

All of the common Radio Controlled Tanks are powered using electricity. This means that they will need to be charged before they can be used. Most Radio Controlled Tanks come with plug in chargers which makes it possible to charge the batteries without needing to remove them from the tank.

Radio Controlled Tanks are however great fun toys which many people will get a lot of enjoyment out of.

Who knows, once your child gets hooked on Radio Controlled Tanks they might enjoy all sorts of other RC vehicles including planes, boats and cars.
