Just interested in what you think?
When it comes to Radio controlled toys such as cars, planes, heli... etc,
which do you prefer and why?, Electric? or Nitro (petrol/gas)?
I much prefer Electric as it is quick clean and easy, plus there are less restrictions on where you can fly them.
I find petrol engines messy, and fiddly.
For me, it depends on the type of vehicle. By this I mean that if I am playing radio controlled cars, then I prefer nitro. True, electric is clean and easy to maintain but nothing beats the excitement from the sound of engine. Its just awesome when you hear the engine roar and the car 'fly' by you.
When it comes to planes, I prefer electric. I guess when the bird is up flying, you can't hear the roaring sound that much, so I would go for cleanliness. And there is the issue of weight especially for small parkflyers where battery is lighter and quiet too when flying around the neighborhood.
I like electric for the same reasons: quick and easy. You never have to go out and buy electricity (well, batteries I suppose, but I think most remote control stuff is rechargeable), don't really have to maintain the stuff in the same way, and you still get to have all the little remote-control fun. By the time I'm flying gas powered mini-choppers, I'll just go out and fly the real thing.
I prefer electronics...
Is cleaner and I will consider the cost of maintaining it is lower...
But I think beginners should try out electronic's first~
i used to use both. I preferred the gas as they where faster but the eletric was a lot easier to fix and maintain.
