#504 electric radio controlled vehicles .... the question is where can we find more information before deciding to have a member take this project? Or more specifically can we purchase any kit or is it a specific kit that has to be bought? Or does it have to be built without a kit at all? Thank you.

This project requires the use of a battery-operated, radio-controlled car or truck. It is not designed for ready to run cars, boats or aircraft, and not for gas powered vehicles. This intermediate project is designed for members with some experience in toy grade radio-controlled vehicles, but who are interested in moving up to hobby grade. Hobby grade vehicles offer more features and are traditionally bought at hobby stores. The best ones for this project require assembly and are customizable. This project deals primarily with 1/10 scale, electric-powered vehicles. Other scales available vary from 1/12 to 1/4 scale, but 1/10 is recommended.
