Do you know The Basics of the RC Car Controller and Radio Control? It’s not rocket science, but there are a few important concepts to understand about the radio control (RC) system on your RC car.


The transmitter is the handheld remote control unit that you use to drive your RC car. It sends out radio signals that the receiver in your car reads and interprets to make it do what the controller tells it to. Most controllers have a couple of different channels that you can switch between, so you can play with multiple cars at the same time without interference from other people’s controllers.

The frequency of your remote control determines how far away from the transmitter it can go without breaking connection. The frequency might be written on the back of the controller itself, and will give you an idea of how far away from home base you should stay while playing!


Most controllers require AA or AAA batteries to operate, so keep some spares handy! Some higher-end models may come with rechargeable batteries that can be plugged into a wall outlet or USB port when they need more juice.

So there you have it: The basics of controlling an RC car with a radio control system. Start practicing and soon enough you’ll be ready to show off your driving skills!
