Let us take some of the stress out of holiday gift buying this season by giving you more time to qualify for price adjustments. Price adjustments on purchases are available 10/8/2022 until 12/25/22. If an item you buy has a price reduction before Christmas, we will credit the difference upon request, so you can shop confidently knowing your price is guaranteed.
All credits will be issued as Loyalty Club Points on your Tower Hobbies account.
A simpler, slower vehicle may not be your dream, but it IS the best way to get started. And remember, you can upgrade parts later to boost speed and power.
Knowing what you're getting into helps, too. Perhaps one of the best sources of information are your own RC buds. Ask your friends!
Picking out your first vehicle is perhaps the most exciting part of RC. Many of today's most popular choices arrive Ready-to-Run. Also known as "RTRs". These vehicles usually come complete with a radio, motor, batteries and more already installed and ready to go. These vehicles are usually targeted at new hobbyists and "backyard" drivers. However, that doesn't necessarily mean you are settling for less performance. As your skills grow, you can improve your model's speed and operation with upgrades. In short, RTRs are perfect if you are new to the hobby. When you choose a vehicle, make sure you understand what it does and does not include. Follow the "Needed To Complete" section on a product page for the model you choose to see a list of the items you'll need to start driving and enjoying the hobby.
Below are some proven options—models that customers have told us gave them an excellent start in the hobby.
