What is RC RTS?
The RC RTS or RC Ready-to-Sail world has taken the world of radio controlled boats by storm. The most popular models, the easiest to run and easily the cheapest of the lot, the RC RTS model genre is something of an entry-point into the hobby. From large ships to beautiful and intricate boats, these RC RTS models are the best thing in the RC boat universe.
There are some fantastic RC RTS models available in toy and hobby stores all over. Simply stepping into a store or going through the Internet can throw up a million results on RC RTS models. This is the best place to start looking for an RC RTS model. Not only do you get to see the product in all its shapes and sizes, you also get to read reviews about it, talk to others about their experiences with the model and simply find out everything that there is.
Picking out the RC RTS model is based on the design. All these models are Ready-to-Sail, meaning they require little to almost no assembly before they are set to go.
In case of models that are more like RC RTS toys, the maximum assembly will be to put in the batteries and get going. Some of these models come with batteries that need plugging in; some come with in-built batteries and an electric inlet for a charger to get plugged in, while others come without batteries and these may need to be bought separately and plugged in.
In the case of RC RTS models, you might find a bit more work to do in terms of the assembly. In most models, especially the ones that come with a lot more detail and depth, you may have to assemble the control surfaces, the transmitters and even the battery pack. This means, the model is actually just a foam or wood cut-out with no electronics installed. You will have to do that bit yourself, with the help of the detailed instruction manual.
Every single RC RTS model or toy comes with its own detailed instruction manual that tells you the exact steps needed to make the model work and play.
In terms of design, these models usually have one major component, which is the body, with other moving parts (propellers, rotors, etc.) attached to them. Again, in some rare cases, you may need to attach these parts to your RC RTS models. The basic idea, however, remains to allow you to get your model, pick it out of the box and head outdoors to hours of fun and excitement.
Easy to use, easy to buy and definitely lighter on the pocket, there are few better things than RC RTS models.
