Carrera RC - Mario Quadrocopter + Turnator

During a visit to the Carrera stand, our presenter Klas Bömecke took a close look around - because in addition to the classic car racing track, the brand also offers fun on the ground, in the air and on the water. Messe.TV then took a closer look at the Carrera RC exhibition area.

Carrera RC: Mario-Copter Quadrocopter

Klas Bömecke: The Carrera brand actually has a whole lot more spectacular things to offer than just the fast little cars on the track! And what it is is hidden behind this room. Klas Bömecke enters the Carrera RC exhibition room Christina Schweighofer: At Carrera RC we go to air, water and land. Klas Bömecke: This is a real classic - Super Mario. But you don't know him like that yet! Christina Schweighofer: No. It's only available from Carrera RC, it's our new Mario copter. Klas Bömecke: Cool. Can I also let it fly? Christina Schweighofer: I think so. Klas Bömecke flies the quadrocopter Klas Bömecke: That's child's play. The Super Mario quadrocopter crashes Christina Schweighofer: You need a bit of practice. Klas Bömecke has flown the Super Mario Quadrocopter behind a shelf - Christina Schweighofer asks Klas Bömecke if he wants to drive the Carrera RC Turnator RTR.

Carrera RC: Turnator

Klas Bömecke: Yes, of course. Klas Bömecke steers the vehicle like crazy. Its huge wheels, which move in opposite directions, seem to be driving up walls. The tire axles rotate 360° in the air. Klas Bömecke: That's probably a real sales hit too, isn't it? Christina Schweighofer: It's our top seller in 2015 and it's already in its second year. In the remote-controlled sector, the Carrera RC Turnator is the best-selling product in the whole of Germany. Klas Bömecke: But it's also really fun. What other great things do you have for me?

Carrera RC: Profi Line Controller

Christina Schweighofer: I'll introduce you to the Carrera RC Profi line next. Klas Bömecke: Why is it called Profi? Christina Schweighofer: As the name suggests, the vehicles can only be controlled by professionals. They can drive at speeds of up to 50 km/h. Klas Bömecke: So this is not the classic children's toy? Christina Schweighofer: It's something for the "real man". It requires a bit of practice and a good feel for the index finger. Klas Bömecke: Why? Christina Schweighofer: I can show you how much km/h your index finger can do on our machine. Klas Bömecke: That sounds promising. I didn't know I had km/h in my index finger. Christina Schweighofer: Let's give it a try. Put your index finger on here and press it as hard as you can.

The display rises to 29 km/h Christina Schweighofer: Yes, that's quite something. Klas Bömecke: That was 29! Christina Schweighofer: (laughs) The Carrera Profi Buggy can do 50 km/h. Klas Bömecke: And why didn't I manage that? Christina Schweighofer: Well, as I said - only the pros can do the whole 50 km/h. Klas Bömecke: Great, thanks. Just make fun of me. Christina Schweighofer: Practice makes perfect. Klas Bömecke: But that's an interesting line! Christina Schweighofer: Yes, we have great licenses. The Red Bull Buggy, for example, but the RC power machine will also really rock in 2016. Klas Bömecke: How many models do you have in the professional segment?

Christina Schweighofer: All the ones you can see here in front of you, 5 of them. We started with the small buggy and this year we are presenting 4 new models. Klas Bömecke: Is there a growing interest in the adult sector? Christina Schweighofer: Definitely. We have a growth of over 10.8 percent from last year to this year. Klas Bömecke: In this professional sector? Christina Schweighofer: In this professional sector. Exactly. Klas Bömecke: That's amazing. Christina Schweighofer: Yes Klas Bömecke: You are probably growing diametrically opposed to the development of the man. The man develops back into a child and you benefit from it. Christina Schweighofer: I know men like that, but I can't confirm it overall.

Klas Bömecke: Oh, somewhere the little boy is in all of us. Christina Schweighofer: I hope so. You should never lose it. Klas Bömecke: Can you tell me what's on the agenda for Carrera in the future? Christina Schweighofer: We will definitely develop or continue to develop the Carrera app. We have the quadrocopter with a video camera - you can see where you are flying and what you are seeing on your mobile device. We will continue to work on this and develop it further. It's also clear that we'll never leave the controller, we're not developing in that direction. Klas Bömecke: It won't be via the app? Christina Schweighofer: No. Klas Bömecke: Although the app is a must-have for many toy manufacturers? Christina Schweighofer: That's true. But especially in our field: we are digitally proportional at 2.4 GHz. This enables fairly precise control that can never be covered so precisely via an app. Klas Bömecke: So what does the app do? Is it the video camera, so to speak? Christina Schweighofer: The app is like a video camera, it records great films. For example, you can film your party from above. Klas Bömecke: That's nice. And that's coming soon? Christina Schweighofer: It's already available in the Quadrocopter Video version. But we're going to build a bit more around it. Klas Bömecke: I'm curious to see what else is coming. But what's already there is very interesting and tempting. Thank you very much for your time. Christina Schweighofer: Thank you very much. With pleasure.
