Serpent Announce F1 RTR
9 March 2013
Serpent have announced an RTR (Ready To Run) version of their F110 F1 car with an expected May release 2013.
The normal method of purchasing an F1 car is as a build it yourself kit, and the F110 will also come in this format. Both are scheduled for May release.
But the exciting news is that for those who want their F1 in RTR form they will now have this option. At time of writing Serpent are the only manufacturer to have announced an RTR F1 car.
The RTR will come with:
- Dragon-RC radio and receiver 2.4Ghz with LCD screen
- Dragon-RC ESC and brushless motor
