Winter RC Fun

So outside fun with your RC models may not be quite the fun you enjoy. With the bitter cold days and wind, it's not conducive to model airplanes and other flying machines. Many areas, including ours, has some indoor arenas and tracks where you can perfect the operation of your RC model trucks, cars and all terrain vehicles. This is a great place to get together with other enthusiasts, share stories, ask questions, get help with mechanical issues and introduce new hobbiests to the world of RC.

Another fun thing to do in the winter is work on decorating, repairing, improving mechanical function and trying out new accessories for your RC models.  Model Airplanes are still one of the most sought after and enjoyed RC models. With all the new technology and advancements, there are plenty of superb kits and RTR (Ready-To-Run) models to choose from.

Children Get In On The Act Too

Absolutely!  Starting children out young with RC model airplanes, RC model trucks, All-Terrains and such is an excellent way to build a love of the hobby early. Parents find spending time working on their joint projects a fun, relaxing and quality experience.

Children really enjoy being able to control their own remote controlled vehicle and will become quite proficient in the operation of their model. It's actually extremely amazing how quickly they pick up the maneuvering and racing portion of things. Kids are just so tuned into technology and love showing up their parents. You just need to be ready for some healthy competition plus some important learning experiences for you both.

We here at Wink's Hobbies in Ithaca would be pleased to show you around the best RC models to start your youngster out on. We want especially to instill a love and excitement about the hobby so are sure to help you choose an appropriate model that will not only entertain your child but help them grow into the hobby along with you.

Never underestimate your child's ability when it comes to RC models. Children are quite adept at learning new things and getting fascinated with not only driving but repairs and mechanics.
