What kit versions are there for remote controlled cars?

The world of remote controlled cars is a world of differences. Some people prefer them ready-made; others want to assemble them themselves. How will I know the difference?

As a newcomer to the remote controlled world, some of the vocabulary can get confusing pretty quickly. The same goes for the descriptions of different kits. Generally speaking, they fit into three categories: Ready to Race (RTR) for beginners, Almost Ready to Race (ARR) for the more experienced and kits for experts.

For beginners: Ready to Race (RTR)

A beginner with no experience of remote controlled cars? Then RTR is the perfect choice for you. RTR stands for Ready to Race. These models come with everything you need: the vehicle, a remote control, a battery and the appropriate charger. Unpack it, switch it on and off you go! The same applies to flying objects, except that the abbreviation is RTF: Ready to Fly.

For the more experienced: Almost Ready to Race (ARR)

If you have a bit of experience with remote controlled vehicles or have a few of them already, ARR (Almost Ready to Race) is a good fit. Unlike with RTR, you're only buying the vehicle and the electronics. The set doesn't include the remote control, battery or charger. You'll have to own them already or buy them separately. The benefits of ARR models are being able to use your preferred battery and favourite remote control. The abbreviation for flying objects is ARF (Almost Ready to Fly).

For experts: kits

Kit models consist of individual parts to assemble, often without any electronics. This is where your craftsmanship comes in. You'll need to already own the tools and accessories required. The chassis is also often unadorned so that you can customise your vehicle. As these assembly kits involve a lot of time and effort, you'll need some knowledge of remote controlled vehicles before you take on a project like this.

Riding my motorbike makes me feel free, fishing brings out my inner hunter, using my camera gets me creative. I make my money messing around with toys all day.

Der Traxxas E-revo, Arrma Kraton und Tamiya Truck sind nicht Arr sondern RTR ohne Akku. Alle drei haben alles dabei bis auf die akkus und Ladegerät.
