Shopping for people at Christmas is always a challenge, it can be more so for a friend or family member who is into RC racing. It's a very addictive hobby and racers don’t think about buying much else than the latest chassis or upgrade parts. This is why you usually get a very thoughtful face from them but no answer when you ask "What do you want for Christmas?". Although us racers will always want something to make our cars lap faster there are a few gifts which would brighten up our pit table while we spend hours tinkering with our "toys".

To help anyone buying for a RC racer this Christmas we have put together a list of gifts that should help. All the products are available for Amazon so you don’t need to hunt for any hobby shops to find them.

These are always handy when working on the tight confined spaces of RC Cars. The Sidiou rechargeable LED folding table lamp makes the perfect pit light. It folds up neatly for a pit box and charges from a USB connection.

Drones are a new craze sweeping the world. Most RC racers will love the new challenge of trying to control one. Parrot make some of the best valued drones on the market, the Mambo Mini Quadcopter is perfect for keeping a racers thumbs entertained while they're away from the track. I personally own one of these and it's by far the best indoor drone I've ever tried.

acerTablet - £119

Another good form of entertainment in the pits is via a computer tablet. We recommend the Acer Iconia TAB 8W W1-810-16D2. It's 8inch screen makes it small enough to fit in a pit bag but also big enough to enjoy a motorsport based movie on. The Iconia has good performance and is also windows based so it can be used to update some of the electronics used in the cars.
