  1. Hi there, im totally new to electronics, but need information and help on an
    idea.

    Say ive got a remote control car, i want to add other things to it, but i
    want these to also work remotely, Any ideas how i would go about this?

    On another note, saying that this remote control car can only last for 5
    minutes, and takes 5 cell nickel metal hydride packs, is there any way i
    could make it last longer than 5 minutes?

    Thanks for any help

    Hi,

    This is a very envolved project even for an expert. Basically, scrap
    all of the electronics in the car. Put in your own reciever circuit and
    microcontorller. Scrap the remote controller down to the controls and
    RF circuit - then add you own microcontroller/software to match the car.

    I do this kind of thing all the time, I hack all the electronics out of
    an 'el cheapo' remote car, install my own extra sensors and electronics,
    and program it to go out on its own (see 'rodent simulation' project on
    my website below).
