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.
Surface radios or transmitters are also called "pistol-grip radios," as they are held similar to a pistol. They can easily be categorized by the numbers of channels they are capable of controlling. The most basic RC vehicles require 2 channels: one for steering and another for throttle. The number of channels they control are often stated in the name of the radio. Many RC vehicles require more than 2 channels. Some RC crawlers require an additional channel for the control of a winch or dig unit. RC tanks also need additional channels to operate the turret and other scale features.
