Remote controlled, or RC toys, continue to be a popular gift during the holidays and other times of year. They can be used indoors and out, with many of them built to withstand crashes without damage to the vehicle or the objects they run into. RC trucks are especially rugged, made to climb over rough terrain and even climb up on walls. Modeled after monster trucks like you’d see at rallies, RC trucks are fun for hobbyists or more serious entertainment for collectors and monster truck fans. These trucks can go fast, too. And despite their heavy-looking build, many are lightweight and compact enough to take along most anywhere to try them out on various terrain. A fully loaded and feature-packed RC truck will cost about $150.
