How Remote Controlled Toys Work

Get lipo batteries NZ for remote controlled toys. Remote controlled or radio controlled toys, also known as RC's have not been around for a very long time but are gradually becoming a favorite pass time for a lot of people around the world, children and adults alike, possibly even more for adults than children.

Some of the most common RC toys include helicopters, cars, trucks, airplanes, submarines, robots, animals, motor boats, fantasy vehicles, sailboats, and airplanes.

The remote control toy culture is a gradually growing community with people sometimes getting together and flying their toys in competition for fun. There are even social media groups on Facebook where people who love these toys chat and talk about them, what they love, what they do not like, and all the latest technologies and new toys on the market.

The mechanics of RC toys differ for each model but essentially they all work according to the same basic principle.

All remote controlled toys have four major parts that control their functioning. These are the transmitter, the receiver, the motors, and a power source.

The transmitter is what the user holds in their hands and is used to control the toy by sending radio waves to the receiver.

The receiver is essentially a circuit board and an antenna inside the RC toy that receives the signals from the transmitter. Following the specific commands by the transmitter, it activates the motors in the toy.

The motors then turn the wheels on the vehicle, or start the propellers, or steer the vehicle in a different direction. Basically, they do whatever the transmitter commanded.

An RC toy has a power source that powers all its actions and the transmitter also has a battery that powers all its actions. The RC toy power source can be rechargeable or it can simply be normal batteries that are removed when worn out.
