5.0 out of 5 stars Everything you need to know

My nephew really wanted to get a radio controlled car and this book helped him make the choice between electric and nitro and whether to go for on road or off road. Even if you think you know...

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok but not really a technical manual
Doesn't cover as much as you would expect from the description, mainly not quite as technical as I was hoping for probably not bad if you have bought an electric car as does explain a fair bit but doen't go into any detail about nitro models and to my mind only gives an introduction to everything else. If you know nothing and have an electric car then possibly worth...

This review is from: Radio Control Car Manual: The Complete Guide to Buying, Building and Maintaining Radio Control Cars (Hardcover)
This brand new book contains everything you need to know about Radio Controlled Cars. The pictures are bright and informative with detailed descriptions of all the important parts. My nephew really wanted to get a radio controlled car and this book helped him make the choice between electric and nitro and whether to go for on road or off road. Even if you think you know everything there is to know I am sure you will learn something from this book. I would highly recommend it!

This review is from: Radio Control Car Manual: The Complete Guide to Buying, Building and Maintaining Radio Control Cars (Hardcover)
I bought this book in order to get back into RC cars after a 17 year absence. This book helped me sort out potential problems before I even bought my new car, and gave vital guidelines as to choosing the right equipment for my application. Also, it gives pro advice on almost everything related to RC cars, absolutely brilliant!

This review is from: Radio Control Car Manual: The Complete Guide to Buying, Building and Maintaining Radio Control Cars (Hardcover)
Bought this as a Christmas present for an RC Car mad teenager. He thought it was great and it has kept him amused and entertained all over the Christmas holiday. He now shares all the bits of knowledge he has learnt from the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Book - Very recommended!, 9 Dec 2008
This review is from: Radio Control Car Manual: The Complete Guide to Buying, Building and Maintaining Radio Control Cars (Hardcover)
I bought this book (well in fact my girlfriend did) as I love reading RC magazines. I noticed this one was written by the Editor of RC Racer which my favourite mag. It is like an extended version of their Racer specials and follows a similar format.

Matt Benfield goes into detail on all the aspects of RC racing and fun and I think the excellent photographs also make this book.

It's great to see RC represented in print and would recommend this for people getting into RC cars as well as seasoned veterans.

If you know nothing and have an electric car then possibly worth buying but wouldn't recommend it to anyone who like myself is new to radio control cars but having read a bit on the internet have learnt the basics, but now wants to go into more detail on setting up a new car or modyfing it.
