Radio controlled toys

This is currently a skeleton page. Please help by adding your contributions either here or in the associated Discussion page.

This page will cover radio controlled model cars, boats and similar items.


These items all contain a battery, radio receiver, electronic controller and one or more motors. Your first task may be to determine which of those needs attention.


These devices usually contain a lithium battery. If abused physically or electrically, this can pose a serious fire risk.
The electric motor may be powerful enough to cause injury to fingers if it starts unexpectedly. Disconnect the battery as the first thing you do and reconnect it only at the end.
