Quality electric remote control cars will have a lithium-ion battery capable of powering the car for double the life of regular alkaline batteries, and they also charge quickly to make your RC car experience rewarding.
Most of these cars will have an electronic controller which will distribute the voltage to the motor evenly, while also powering the servo control for the steering. The motors in these cars can be either brushed or brush less motors with the brush less type being more expensive. The difference in the two types of motors is usually found in the speed and response time. The brush less type motors usually are used my people who may be involved in RC car racing.
Electric RC cars use rechargeable battery packs to power their motor and steering, which are usually recharged from a 12-volt car battery or wall socket. Batteries run for about 5-10 minutes, depending on the type of engine your car has, and charging the battery usually takes 15-30 minutes. Because of this, it is strongly recommended you have at least two battery packs, to allow for quick replacement of the battery. This means your car can keep running while the other battery is recharging, giving the car more overall running time.
The main reason electric RC's are said to be easier than nitro is in the amount of maintenance and tuning their engines require. Though the care, maintenance and cost of battery packs is steep, it is still less trouble for the new driver than the air filters, tuning, fueling and various other engine parts that require attention on a nitro car. Instead, careful conditioning and proper storage of your battery packs will keep your electric RC running smoothly for years. Always consult your manufacturer's instructions to make sure you're getting the right battery packs for your car, and that you're caring for them properly.
If you're a beginner, or if you just want to get to the races, an electric rc can offer you the speed and fun you're after for less work..You can purchase these cars easily by online. There are so many hobby store which provide this facility.
