As mentioned in Part 1, I recommended to purchase a Hobby Grade RTR (Ready To Run) Electric R/C car. There are many to choose from. The brushed motor version is cheaper available with a A.M. or F.M. radio system average cost ranges between $85.00 to $190.00 for a smaller scale car 1/16 to 1/10th.The Brushed Version motors are great starter motor but the maintenance are high on these motors, some parts of these motors fail frequently such as brushes and armatures. The Radio system that come with these cars require crystals and limited to frequency's, each crystal is assigned a number. When operating your car with other r/c cars it is very important each car has different crystal number this will cause many problem's using same crystal number for 2 or more cars. Listed bellow are R/C cars brands that I recommend.

As mentioned in Part 2 I recommend a Electric R/C Car if starting in the R/C Car hobby,the brushed motor combination is a good choice for the cheap entry into the r/c car hobby but it has its limitation's.
This blog we will review the Brushless motor combination and the 2.4 ghz radio system.The brushless motor combination is more expensive than the brushed motor system but maintenance on these motor combination is very minimal.Some of the motor combinations are even water proof.
The average price for a brushless RTR (Ready To Run) ranges from $179.00 to $400.00.
I have included several video showing different types of R/C Cars.

R/C Cars (beginner)
If you have been thinking about getting started into the Radio Controlled Hobby, I would recommend a Electric RTR (Ready to Run) car. Choose a Hobby Grade R/C Car not a toy like what you would find at a discount store.Hobby Grade R/C cars are manufactured of high quality material’s such as aluminum, plastic,carbon fiber and stainless Steel.Parts are easy to replace on a hobby grade R/C Car. Many scale sizes are available 1/18th,1/16th,1/12,1/10,1/8 and 1/5.The smaller  scale cars cost less than the larger scale. Cost for a RTR car ranges from $105.00 to $800.00

The customer service at this McDonald's is Horrible I had problems with this place many times before.What ever happened to fast service example employee,s and shift managers,managers, refusing to wait on customers.Employee's waiting on customers while talking on their cell phones.What ever happened to friendly service!!! Our family had been a loyal customer of this McDonald's since its grand opening we spend for a family of Five on average $100.00 a week at this location.Normally we would purchase breakfast,and lunch since our family works at the Price chopper located behind this McDonald's our family will never return this McDonald's location!!!!!!!!!!
