RC Toys (Cars)


By: Ahmet Cengiz

Have you ever bought a RC toy? A RC toy can be hard to control, but it’s very fun. Everyone likes playing with RC toy. There were no RC toys or other kinds of remote control toys in 1970s or 1980s. Our parents did not get to play with these toys a lot. They were not so good at that time. Remote control toys can be RC cars, drones, and helicopters are fun. Do you ever wonder how we use these toys or how they work? They are great toys for kid.

There are many companies that make toys like this. They are also a great gift. As an example, first, Remote Controlled (Radio Controlled) car was made in early 1966s by an Italian company. It was first available in the UK in December 1966. Some people can make remote controlled toys at home, but it will not be as good as they are in store. The price of these cars can be changed trough 5 dollars to 100 dollars, maybe more. However, these toys work in a very different way.

Therefore, RC cars are powered by various sources. Electric models are powered by small but powerful electric motors and rechargeable nickel-cadmium, nickel metal hydride, or lithium polymer cells. Most fuel-powered models use glow plug engines, small internal combustion engines fueled by a special mixture of nitromethane, methanol, and oil (in most cases a blend of castor oil and synthetic oil). These are referred to as “nitro” cars. According to the website I looked, these cars are hard to understand.

This relates to engineering by learning the mentality and science of a toys motor. Also this relates to engineering by learning a new mechanism and work of an invention.
