Drones vs. RC Vehicles
What is the difference between drones and RC vehicles? Drones are actually a type of RC vehicle. "RC" stands for "Radio Controlled". Any vehicle that is remotely controlled falls into the category of an RC vehicle. In popular terms though, people usually describe quadcopters (and other multirotor aircraft) as drones. What are quadcopters? Quadcopters are basically helicopters but with 4 rotors. Some models have as many as 8 rotors (these are called octocopters). Quadcopters (and other multirotor aircraft) have superior stability control to other RC aicraft (like RC aircraft and helicopters). This makes them ideal for taking aereal photos and videos (which is the main use for these devices). All DJI drones carried by TDot Performance have mounts for either GoPro cameras (which we also sell) or your own camera (depending on the model of the drone).
The term "RC vehicle" has come to describe miniature versions of full-sized vehicles, such as sports cars, trucks, boats, airplanes, and helicopters. These vehicles are typically used in competitions (or just for fun!). There are many enthusiast meets where people race their RC vehicles around complicated tracks. TDot Performance carries all Traxxas RC vehicles, which are the highest performing RC vehicles on the market.
DJI is the most well known manufacturer of drones in the world. TDot Performance carries a wide variety of DJI drones, such as the Phantom 2, Phantom 3, Inspire 1, and the Spreading Wings S1000+. We also carry all the accessories you could ever need for these drones, such as the GoPro Hero4 Black Edition, the DJI IOSD Mark II, the DJI IOSD Mini, a variety of cases from Pelican, navigation screens from Flysight, and much more.

These premium quality vehicles come in both electric and gas varieties. With a top speed of 100 mph (160 km/h) on some models, it is pretty safe to say that this is more than a toy!
