    My first hobby grade RC was a nitro powered airboat. My dad got it for me and my brothers back when we were kids. It looked pretty close to this one, ours was a fair bit bigger, and looked a bit more like a jet boat

    You got a few missing from the list of popular brands that some people bought as there first. HPI, Xray, Tamiya at least HPI or Tamiya should be on there.

    My first RC was a HPI Nitro RS4 3 Drift

    1984, TOYSRUS I was given the best birthday gift a dad could do for his son. Gave me a fifty dollar bill and said go ahead and pick out your rc. I had perma grin for the whole winter, my dad said. I can't wait to do that someday for my own. I bought a tyco sand buggy. The addiction started from there.

    None of the above. First was a Hot Wheels Mattel semi, followed by a Tyco Turbo Hopper. But those were toy grade, and my first hobby grade one was a Marui Big Bear.

    Still have all 3 actually. :)

    My first Hobby Grade RC was a Kyosho Raider. I bought it back in 1991. I still have my older Brother's Kyosho Ultima 2 that he bought in1990.

    This is a picture of the 1990 Kyosho Ultima 2.

    My first was the Grasshopper (sorry I think Tyco or Tamiya maybe) mid to late 80's I'm guessing...it was bad @$$ for the time though...at least I my buddies thought so.

    shortly after it was a Tamiya Big Foot - then the Kyosho something (first nitro car) ...etc...etc...etc... I don't even think I can remember all the RCs I've had since I started...but i think I might have at least one from each manufacturer at one time or another...
