9 Safety Tips to Operating Your Nitro RC Car

Published Categorized as Setup

To have more fun and enjoy the RC hobby, there are important
things you need to keep in mind to ensure safety when operating your
nitro-powered radio control car

Many cases of personal injury and property damage were resulted from ignoring
safety precautions.

Don’t make that mistake. Here are our nine top tips to remember:

1. Be sure to operate your car in an open area where no people are walking or moving around. Do not run your RC on the following places:

  • public roads
  • in places where children are playing around
  • indoor and in confined areas
  • in residential districts or parks (unless you have
    the permission from the proper authorities)

2. Always check with the user’s manual especially when it comes to the proper RC fuel to use for your model.

3. Check the batteries in your radio transmitter, as well as the battery pack in your receiver. If any of the batteries are weak, charge them fully first.

If you are running on weak batteries, the signal transmission and reception of the RC will decrease and you will eventually lose control of the vehicle, which may lead to accidents or some damages on your car.

4. If your vehicle is behaving strangely, better stop immediately and check the cause. As long as the issue is not resolve, do not operate the RC car. Or you will be dealing with more problems.

5. Be always careful when it comes to RC fuel. Its vapors and exhausts are toxic, so handle the fuel with care

6. Beware from putting your fingers or any object inside the rotating or moving parts of the RC vehicle.

7. After running your RC model, avoid touching the engine and muffler as they can cause severe burns.

8. Store the RC fuel in a cool, dry place and out of children’s reach. Check if the cap is tightly in place.

9. Apply proper after-run maintenance of your RC car to get it ready for the next run.

Following these simple guidelines can help you avoid accidents and let you just enjoy the hobby more.
