The Longer Days of Summer Gives You More Time Outside With Your RC Hobby

You’ve waited all year for this season to arrive and now its here – good old summertime. As an RC hobby enthusiast you don’t have to worry about growing bored during those long hot days of summer. When you’re not busy working or doing chores you can always turn to your collection of hobby cars, trucks, planes, helicopters or boats and spend hours engaged in your favorite pastime.

The great thing about summer is that you can pretty much count on mild weather conditions most days, which is great for taking your favorite RC model trucks, cars or other vehicles outside for a spin. Ithaca is known for cloudy days, but these are usually followed by clear skies and plenty of sunshine. As an Ithaca local, you’ll be able to enjoy running your RC models outside in your yard, or at one of the local parks, for hours at a time. Ithaca has plenty of open spaces where you can rev up those engines and roar into action!

While you’re making plans to go outdoors for some RC fun, remember to check out the latest selection of cool models at your favorite Ithaca hobby shop. Wink’s Hobbies in Ithaca is a place you can come to when you’re ready to add to your collection. Our shop is dedicated to RC models only, which makes us a destination hobby shop for every person who has a passion for model vehicles and hobby trains.

Not only is summer an ideal time to race and drive your RC vehicles, but it’s also an ideal time for kit building as well. There’s something magical about building a model plane or boat from scratch, and you can spend the whole summer meticulously constructing every inch of a classic plane or boat. Model building requires an abundance of patience and skill, and you can bet there will be some sticky challenges along the way. But, you don’t care how long it takes to get it perfect, because the payoff comes when you can take it outdoors for a test run. Kit models usually look quite impressive sitting on an indoor display shelf.

Summer is also a popular time for racing, and longer days gives you ample time to indulge in your “need for speed.” RC model racecars come in numerous styles and colors with powerful engines that provide you with nonstop track action. Most cars are capable of handling different types of terrain such as concrete and dirt. Cars perform best on a smooth flat surface, but you can decide how and where to race your models. Some people construct their own racetracks at home, but an empty parking lot often serves as the backdrop for racing fun too.
