Choosing an R/C hobby in Melbourne although on the surface seems just like any other place in Australia, there are a few little things that should always be considered before making that final decision.

Melbourne weather

There are few places in Australia that can offer every season all in one day! This is one reason to take into account the electronics and make sure they are water proof if available as this will give you a fighting chance when is goes from sunshine to storms in a matter of minutes.

For this reason two of our favourite brands in the off road and on road cars are Traxxas and Helion

Melbourne location

These days Melbourne living is quite diverse, from high density apartments to larger rural properties. For this reason you should always work out where you are planning to use your new hobby vehicle before you make a purchase.

That doesn’t mean you need a large property to use a plane, helicopter or drone. It just means that you should always research your local area for parks and ovals to make sure you have an appropriate area to use it.  For planes, helicopters and drones the best range that suits playgrounds of all sizes check out the Parkzone, Hobbyzone and Blade ranges

So what’s your next hobby?
