There are many types of Remote Control Toys they are just as popular today as they were when they were first invented. The most popular at the moment are radio control cars and planes. There are so many to choose from it can be confusing. Cars can be simpler to control especially if there basic ones, areoplanes can be a bit trickier to control but make a great hobby for both young and old. You will need a license and be a member of a flying club to fly most remote control planes so it is not as straight forward as a car. The advantage of doing this is that they will be able to teach you in a very safe environment and eventually you will be awarded your license. Read up about them both before you decide which one you would like to take up as a hobby or perhaps buy someone as a present. There are some good shops on line that sell all kinds of Remote Control Toys and can deliver them direct.
