I have kind of limited exposure to RC. I've built a couple RC Tamiya 1/16 Tanks, but that's about it. I understand generally how things work together, but the bigger RC stuff never really hooked me.

On youtube I found some videos of micro RC construction equipment and I'm enthralled. Micro RC appears to be about 1/87 scale.

It seems like a lot of this stuff is DIY in Germany and I suspect a lot of the bodywork and visible elements are 3d printed because other than a company named DASMikro (https://www.tiny4x4.com/das87/das87-kits-sets/) I'm not seeing a lot of "kits" for these things. On the other hand, the plethora of vehicles in the above videos (and others like them) show a high level of polish (glass, lights, etc) and a variety of vehicles which might indicate off the shelf kits being available. Usually if I can find a good kit for something I'm interested in, I can figure out the basics of what I'm doing and go from there, but if I can't find a kit I'm adrift.


So, how the hell do I get started in this?
