Interest was minimal until about the 1960's when momentum in the industry grew due to consumer demand.The kyosho mp777 is very affordable, durable and most of all fast and fun! One of the first remote control cars I ever bought was the Kyosho mp777 and man did it ever go fast, over 30MPh! I bashed that radio control car all over the backyard and at the local track and it kept on ticking. What makes the kyosho mp777 so great and a good beginner rc car? It's dependable, fast, and most of all easy on the wallet. Since those early days the variety of models has expanded along with the preferences of the consumer. Scaled models mimic their full size counterparts with attention paid to all the working parts so that performance on the model just like the full size big brother will depend very much on the quality of the individual parts. The enthusiast looking for a good experience with this hobby will be motivated by the performance of the vehicle. This will be determined by the design and the quality of the parts so a big part of the experience for the enthusiast is to source good quality parts and build the model from scratch. Over the years models have improved in design, quality and performance just like the road and race cars they are models of. Manufacturers raising the standards are motivated by a market where families, parents and children will get involved as well as adults who take the hobby very seriously to the point that competitions are organized around the world.
