Mini RC and Micro RC Vehicles

Mini and Micro RCs are tiny little radio controlled cars, trucks, motorcycles, boats, and aircraft running from about 1:18 to 1:66 scale and smaller. The terms mini and micro are often used interchangeably to refer to cars from about 2 inches to 5 or 6 inches in length.

MicroSizers, ZipZaps, and XMODS are popular lines of miniature RC cars. Generally lower-cost than the typical 1:8 and 1:10 scale RCs, some mini and micro RCs are just as customizable and often quite collectable as well.
