10 Tips For The RC Beginner

As a beginner RC Hobbyist, there are so many things that you still have to learn. Sometimes the only way to learn is to make mistakes yourself, but sometimes you just need solid advice from experienced and advanced hobbyists. So I reached out the awesome people in our community and got some advice to stop you from making the same mistakes they did. Here is a list of the 10 best pieces of advice I received…

1. Get A Bigger Tool Box than you may think you need.

2. Good quality tools are worth their weight in gold

3. Decided what mode you are, not what mode people are trying to sell me.

Also for wheel radios, ask yourself – am I left handed or right handed?
