What is an RC truck?

A radio controlled truck (RC truck) is a miniature reproduction of a real truck that is remotely piloted through a radio controller. At its core, truck modeling was limited to the reproduction of load-bearing or seedling trucks, but this activity has spread to construction trucks. As a result, a whole range of scale models, which can be driven on all terrains, are marketed.

What are the different brands of RC trucks?

Tamiya ;

Carson;

Wedico ;

Amewi ;

MRC;

T2M;

RC System.

Miniature trucks Man, Scania, Mercedes, Volvo, Ford Aeromax, Grand Hauler and other models are also to be acquired.

Indeed, it is necessary to draw a model, choose a material before carrying out the cutting. A lighting system and a stall system can be installed depending on the model chosen.

How to turn a bruder truck into an RC?

A bruder truck can be turned into an RC truck with the right tools and the right method. A conversion kit compatible with the truck is essential. Apart from the Bruder model, it is necessary to acquire an engine, a chassis, front and rear axles, rims as well as tires. A dumpster, container or semi-trailer may be required depending on the model to be imitated.

How to paint an RC truck?

The customization of an RC truck requires painting its bodywork. To give it a great look, you must bring a primer bomb, a varnish bomb or a paint can in the color of your choice. The bodywork must be cleaned and dried in the open air before accommodating the primer layer. Subsequently, sanding with fine water paper is necessary. After re-removing the bodywork, drop thin layers of paint and let it dry overnight. Refine the work by making the details with a brush.

How to mount RC module on a fire truck?

The radio control module is compatible with RC vehicles including the fire truck. In order to work, it needs a 9V battery for the remote control and 4 1.5AA batteries to spin the wheels. The chassis of the fire truck is dismantled to accommodate the elements of the RC modul before being put back in its place. One switch is used to turn on the wheel drive motor, and another is located on the remote control. Finally, just drive the fire truck with the RC modul.
