Rc Tank 1:16

RC tank 1:16 scale versions are one of the most commonly available models in the market. When you go to a toy or hobby store, the shelves will be lined by these RC tank 1:16 models. Meant for people of all ages, these RC tanks' 1:16 models are easy to use, small enough to manage and, yet, loaded with fun and excitement.

The RC Tank, in 1:16 scale, is amongst the small models that are popular for their size. They are built mainly for those who are looking to spend some playing time with their toys rather than looking at something more serious. Available primarily with electric motors, these models are known for their basic usability rather than performance or other features.

For many years, RC tanks, in 1:16 scale, have been used as toys. This is because a large majority of these toys are made in simple plastic-based moulds. This allows for a mass-manufacturing process and a cheaper price-tag on these wonderful little machines.

At the RC Tanks in 1:16 scale, most of the models are run on electric motors. Due to their relatively smaller sizes, these models are incapable of housing anything more significant and, therefore, are quite simple to manage. The small size also means that the electric motor cannot be too powerful, thereby limiting the speed and power of the tanks. However, whether an RC tank, of 1:16 scale, or a full grown monster that fights battles for its country, tanks are always slower and more adept at scaling rough terrain, rather than win races.

With most of the models made of plastic, RC tank in 1:16 scales usually come with plastic caterpillar tracks or even rubber versions. While these aren't very realistic, they do the job when it comes to moving over grass or other, slightly-rough, surfaces. They are a complete waste of time if you are looking at some serious terrain.

For some serious tank-action, you need to buy the model kits for RC tanks, in 1:16 scale. These models allow you to build every single bit of the tank and ensure that there is adequate detail to make real-life tanks smile. These are also a great way to spend some time with your child and ensure that your children learn some vital hand-skills as well as learn about basic electronics and mechanics.

Whether you are looking for something to do in your spare time, or looking for a meaningful investment of your time, effort and money or simply trying to spend some quality time with your child, you will be heading in the right direction with RC tanks in 1:16 scale.
