About is an online retail store currently specialising in radio control car racing - more specifically, large scale (1:5) and micro scale (1:24-1:28).

RCM8 is run by two RC enthusiasts, Steve Metcalfe and Martin Geldart. Steve is known for his involvement in large scale RC car racing and is the current chairman at Brookland Raceway in Kent, a large scale, outdoor, tarmac track. Martin races micro scale RC cars indoors now but used to race 1:10 many years ago and is also a general RC enthusiast who likes drones, helicopters and gliders.

We both pride ourselves on having the best customer service in the industry and aim to have the best range of products available. We started RCM8 in March 2020, at the beginning of the pandemic in UK and the beginning of the UK's first lockdown, but have very quickly managed to grow into a leading supplier of RC racing products.

Our goal is to not only grow into all radio control car scales but to also grow into the other genres of the RC hobby such as drones, helicopters, boats and airplanes, and become the go-to place for everything RC.
