The universe of radio-controlled hobbies generally takes two forms: skateboard-aged kids whee-whizzing their monster trucks around the parking lot, or older pseudo-engineers playing with their boats and airplanes. Finally, radio control has come in a big way to the boot-and-air horn set.
We introduce you to VCS Hobbies of Brooklyn, New York, which bills itself as the most experienced dealer of big-scale, radio-controlled trucks around. Look at this Ford Aeromax from Tamiya, far better known for its precision glue kits of race cars and military aircraft. The Aeromax is huge, in 1/14th-scale, more than two feet long with an optional three-speed gearbox. Retail is $619. VCS has radio rigs from Tamiya and Wedico, the other big name in this hobby, plus construction equipment from Vario and Stahl. Go to www.backyardtrucking.com or call 718-395-1784.
