How does a remote control car work?
The operation of a remote-controlled car requires some components parts to function. The parts that make it work are:
- A transmitter
- A Receiver
- A motor
- A source of power:
The transmitter is the device that directs the movement of the car by sending a radio wave that is built into it to the car, when the controller button is pressed or pushed. It works with a 9 volts battery. The antenna attached to the car is the receiver. It receives the signal, interprets it, and sends it to the motor. The motor, which helps the car to move, now acts according to the direction they receive. A 9 volts rechargeable battery powers the movement.

Kids are often excited when they see their moms and dads drive a car and they would often think, “When I grow up I will have a car like daddy or like mummy”. With this thought in their minds, they go wild with excitement when they receive a toy car as a gift.
