How a Radio-Controlled Car Works
Article Technical Rating: 10 out of 10
I recently bought my son his first radio-controlled car. Playing with it reminded me how as a young child I loved to get radio-controlled toys so I could tear them open to figure out how they worked. The magic of the electronics is what fascinated me. It was this early curiosity that helped drive me toward a career in electronics engineering and helping entrepreneurs develop new electronic products.
Unfortunately, I never figured out the details of how one worked. Once I began the serious study of electronics other areas captured my interest. So I decided to take apart my son’s new car to finally see how one worked.
