Default Field Of Career in RC world?

Hello there

The purposes i set up this new thread is want to know the career chance in this RC world.

Im still young, a student and dont have any ambition until now

So what i wanna ask is what Martin Hudy and Juraj Hudy do in college? what course they do? what deparment that have in corporate like Tamiya Inc, Xray Racing Model car and etc ? what actually i need to do just to be the next HUDY?

I know it is some kind of engineering work but can someone describe briefly about it . Really appreciated that

Regards,
Aril.


p/s: sorry for my grammar mistake

Probably - Metallurgical Engineering. He created his own special version of spring steel used in all his tools and then in his XRAY cars. That metal alloy is the backbone of his business.

thanks! i will do some research on it

mainly i looking on designer of the car, the physic law in this thing is very high.
any clue on the ngineering involves?

Combining alloys for proper hardness while retaining certain flex characteristics and keep tensile strength are beyond my level of education, but I do understand the properties. I would start with looking for Universities that specialize in this area.

As far as suspension dynamics, mechanical engineering or engineering mechanics (and yes they are completely different). A lot of these are combined in aerospace. If you want to get into batteries, plastics and composites look into chemical engineering.

Hudy got involved because of his steel. However, I believe for general RC business some kind of construction division on a technical university should be better. I'm also a student at an engineering university and I find this very interesting

Probably can't go wrong with a mechanical engineering degree. I would imagine that's the backbone of most things r/c related outside of the electronics. Don't forget about the educational requirements of the nitro world as well.

oh yes it is because of the steel that made from special world-renowned, top-secret, self-developed HUDY Spring Steel™ ( I love this tagline )
yes, this thing is amazing! the story behind our toys not as simple as our imagination

can someone from the TEAM on the buisness say hi at here?

yes, its all about a physic law like inertia and other stuff!

Mechanical Engineering and CAD are probably the most important for designing and manufacturing cars.

Also, some sort of courses in Vehicle Dynamics or Automotive Engineering would be very helpful, especially if they have some racing background. For instance, many universities here in the states participate in the Formula SAE program where students design and build their own purpose built road racer and then compete in autocross style events.

Mechanical Engineering.

Engineer/Designer for Traxxas Brent Byers (designed Revo, etc) has a Mechanical Engineering degree from Umass.

Developing ESC software would be very interesting now that you mention it. I do have a programming background and want to go back for electrical, but as of right now I'm applied into mechanical engineering.

This just gave me an idea I'm going to play around with my hobbywing :P Don't really wanna touch my tekin.

Very true about the Formula SAE program. I'm in it

Sweet. I've never done it but I know some people that have and have some autocross experience. A little suggestion for you. Don't get too caught up in design. Get the thing built and ready to go as soon as possible. Then find the best driver you can and TEST TEST TEST. In that style of event, the driver is BY FAR the biggest factor. I've seen bad cars with great drivers win and great cars with inexperienced drivers lose miserably.

Great little article about it:
