How to Make a Remote Control Car

How to Make a Remote Control Car

Remote Control Car: This is a pretty simple robot. You might not even classify this as a robot saying a 4 year old could accomplish this!

You could go the easy way and buy a kit, or do it the fun way and make it out of supplies bought from craft stores and inventor’s stores… First you’ll need 2 boxes. The best kind of box to use is a card box. Go to your nearest Wal-Mart, K-Mart, Big Lots, or Walgreen’s/Eckerd’s and get 2 packs of cards with plastic casing, not cardboard/paper.

Now go to Radio-Shack and get 2 electric motors, preferably a 9v powered ones. Now you should get 2 coils of wire. One should be red, one should be white. Now get 1 battery pack/holder.

Now get a motorcycle fuse pack. Next buy a radio transmitter and a remote that fits the signal. Last get a pack of wire holders. All of this can be done at Radio-Shack. Now put the Battery Pack on top of 1 of the card boxes.

Put a 9V battery in it then tape it to the top. Now open up the other card pack. Put the 2 motors on opposite sides. Now poke a whole through one side out of the other. Now stick the fans on the outside of the motors through the holes.

Last you will put the radio transmitter in the pack that should be open still(the one you have been working in).

The radio transmitter should use watch batteries and have its own battery pocket. Put the black wire on the right side and the red on the right side of the batter pack on the back. Bring the wires to the transmitter. Now put a fuse on the battery pack and the transmitter.

Now hook the transmitter to the motors with the wires. Now go to your local craft store. Buy 3 wooden poles.

Make sure they are flimsy and about 7-10 cm long. Poke holes through the back card case and the front of the back case and the back of the front case. Glue the sticks in. Now buy wheels what ever size you want.

You should already have a remote because it comes with the transmitter. Put the wheels on the back stick and the motors and you’re ready to put in the decorations. This is what mine looked like:

I bought the chassis at my crafts store.
