How Fast is a 2.4 Ghz RC Car?

March 19, 2024

When purchasing an RC car, it is important to understand how fast it will be. Besides price and size, the radio frequency of an RC car is another crucial factor. A good 2.4 ghz rc car will allow you to control it from a greater distance and run at a higher speed than a slower RC car. Moreover, it will not interfere with other cars because of the frequency. This article will help you learn how fast your RC car can go based on its radio frequency.

What is 2.4G?

The 2.4 GHz system allows multiple RC vehicles to run simultaneously without interference. Unlike traditional narrow-band systems operating on 27 or 49 MHz, 2.4 GHz spread spectrum technology can handle up to six separate frequencies. This eliminates the need to match every transmitter and receiver to the same channel, which is a common cause of frequency interference.

This technology also uses much less power, reducing the burden on your AA batteries. Its transmitter antenna is shorter and more flexible, avoiding the bent wire breakages that can occur with traditional 35mhz telescopic aerials. It also has a self-monitoring function that will switch to an unused channel if it detects interference.

2.4 GHz can also be used in indoor settings where the radio signals cannot travel as far as they would outdoors. However, it is important to note that the radio signals can be interfered with by other electronic devices such as wifi. It is also important to avoid using your RC vehicle near walls, trees, and houses.
