Ready To Run
Ready to Run (abbreviated as RTR) means that the model is ready for use immediately, once the batteries included in the scope of delivery have been inserted or the provided rechargeable battery has been charged. You are then ready to have driving fun!
Remote controls with MHz technology operate in the FM frequency range, which is also used by radio stations to transmit their programmes. However, the frequencies of toy products are lower than radio frequencies, therefore avoiding any interference.
The products are equipped with 27 MHz or 40 MHz so that the basic Dickie Toys models can be operated at the same time without problems. In other words, for simultaneous operation two vehicles are always required - one with 27MHz and the other with 40 MHz.
Remote controls with 2.4 GHz technology operate in the same frequency range that is also used for WiFi and Bluetooth, for example.
The advantage of GHz technology is the large number of models that can be operated simultaneously without problems, and automatic switching to other free channels in the event of interference. This makes it possible to operate more than 80 vehicles at the same time.
1-channel means that the vehicle moves forwards, and backwards in a curve.
2-channel means that the vehicle has full driving functionality, i.e. forwards, backwards, left and right.
3-channel means that the vehicle has full driving functionality and also has a function such as doors open/close or lights on/off.
An additional channel is required for every other function that is operated via the remote control.
Digital - Proportional
Digital proportional means that the speed and the steering can be accurately controlled, and do not immediately start up at full power.
