RTR, Kit - WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN?

Ever wondered what all these abreviations mean. Here are some basic tips on where to start.

RTR (Ready To Run) - Boatss that are RTR means that they are Ready to Run out of the box. They include the Boat, powered or Sailing, complete with Radio system, Main Battery & Charger and often some spares (Most exclude the 4 - 8 'AA' batteries for the Transmitter). Please be sure to check each Boats description as some may not include Battery and Charger from time to time. Sailing Boats will always have some building as they are too large to have 100% Complete in the box.

KIT - A Kit means that the Boat has to be completly built from the ground up. Kits can come in different configuations which can include Radio Systems, Motors and electronics.. Most kits are for the higher end of the Hobby, and usually require some established RC knowledge and skills. Kits are also great when you want to learn about your RC Boat, there is no better way to start a Hobby with building your kit.
