There was a small car that ran at a speed of more than 100km per hour. “It was an amazing experience with the RC Club. We got to experience amazing machines and the day was unforgettable,” said Nishant Jairath, creator of ‘Gadgets and More’ and resident of Sarabha Nagar.

Gurdev Nagar-resident Harjinder Singh said, “As a gadget freak and member of ‘Gadgets and More,’ I expanded my knowledge and interest. I plan to own radio controlled car and race it on Ludhiana streets.”

Harkirat Singh Ryait, owner of RC racing club and resident of BRS Nagar, said he has a passion for fast moving cars. “I have the world’s largest radio controlled car named ‘Baja 5 T’,” he said.

The adventure of flying a radio controlled helicopter or racing a radio controlled car is unmatchable,” said Ankit Dadu, a resident of Shamsher Avenue.
