  • STEM Education and the use of Radio Control (RC) Products

    STEM is an acronym that stands for four increasingly relevant academic disciplines: Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. Rather than teach each area separately, STEM education integrates these disciplines for use in real-life applications and the use of RC related products can add a fun element that students can relate to. Remote Control toys are not only fun to play with, but they’re also a great way to educate students about robotics, mechanics and how to build and design. It is a great way to develop a student’s senses, mechanical and learning skills to promote their hand-eye coordination and problem-solving ability.

    Which ECX Car is Right for Me? A Modelflight Buyer's Guide
    ECX have always had a great range of RC cars and trucks and as in any scenario when you are spoilt for choice, making a final decision can be difficult!
