History

In 1958, Nikko R/C was founded by Takeshi Hattori in Japan. Nikko launched their radio-controlled vehicle line in 1966 and started producing their full manufacturing line in 1973.

In 1977, Nikko expanded operations overseas, opening manufacturing plants in the United States, Canada, Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, South America, and New Zealand. The Nikko R/C line contained an expansive number of vehicles that ranged from buggies, speed cars and off-road vehicles to boats, special action vehicles, and air flight.

An early Nikko design was the F10 series frame buggy, a two-wheel-drive dune buggy and sold both by Nikko and RadioShack. There were many versions of the Nikko F10.
