R/C Vehicles Require Good Radio Control Equipment

"The R/C unit is the heart of your model. Your radio control equipment is a valuable piece of modern electronic technology. Take care of it! Protect it from moisture at all times. Continually monitor the state of the batteries, and replace them prior to complete discharge." - Tamiya
