Kids under 10 may need adult help and supervision but these RC kits feature easy-to-follow instructions. While the RCs built with these kits might not be the fastest or coolest looking cars on the block, they provide a fun learning experience for all ages.
RC Kits for TeensThe kits and building sets for teens generally have lots of parts -- often many small parts -- and may require careful study of the assembly instructions.
One way to learn about electronics and how motors and engines work is to build an RC vehicle from the ground up. Kits from Revell, Elenco, and LEGO Systems help teens learn about radio systems, motors, circuitry, robotics, and even soldering while building their own RC vehicle. These RC kits for teens vary in complexity but do have one thing in common -- a great learning experience that results in a real radio or remote controlled car, truck, tank, or wheeled robot.
