    Can someone tell me about getting a job in the Rc world

    I'm interested in working within the Rc world. I would like to work from home beings I'm disabled. I would LOVE to do product testing and reviewing but dont we all haha. Is there any college courses that would help me in finding a Rc job

    I am in the same situation as you, I was struck by a 1 ton truck on the highway at 60mph and am in a wheelchair, but the doctors say I will walk again, but have always been in the R/C world....

    I was struck by a dirtbike going 40+ mph headon. My left arm was was shattered from elbow down so I have 5 plates from elbow to wrist. And it is also paralyzed. I'm glad to hear you will walk again. I am in the Midwest and there's not much for an Rc scene. I will move eventually maybe Phoenix will have something. Racing will awesome depending what classes they even do anymore.

    I am in Phoenix and I have a front yard perfect for practicing for races and there are a lot of BMX/RC tracks but at certain hobby stores there are tracks. In front of my favorite hobby store called HobbyTown USA they will sometimes have races. Me and my father build most of our cars. We built our first R/C car together. Most days it is AWESOME weather.

    Well you could go into electronic engineerig or mechanical engineering. However you're going to be in school for a while...

    Most sponsored racers are usually the ones doing the developmental testing and gathering of the results with R/C's....

    Pretty sure there's a very long line waiting for the product testing and reviewing positions.. I've been waiting 14 years with no luck.

    Your best bet is to check out the employment section Traxxas posts on their main site....

    As is the case with most good jobs (good paying and something we want to do), you have to know someone. "You can't cross a river without a bridge." Good luck to you my friend. I hope you find something in R/C. There's nothing better than getting payed to do what you love.
