Transmitter: The transmitter usually refers to the handheld controller. It is the transmitter that sends out a signal or command that enables the RC Car to carry out specific functions. Transmitters operate using either infrared technology (similar to TV remote controllers) or radio frequency (as seen in Walkies) in communicating with the RC Cars.
Receiver: Receivers are located within the RC cars and their sole purpose is to receive the signals sent from the transmitter. Receivers can be located within the RC Car as a circuit board or simply as an antenna hanging outside the car. Receivers with radio frequency (RF) are more likely to have a better range of operation that those with infrared technology.
Motor: This is the component that determines how the signals sent and received by the transmitter and receiver are executed properly. The motor is what determines how the car is steered, what direction it turns in and how it stops.
Energy Source: The energy source for Kid RC Cars is usually a battery. The better the battery, the better the overall performance of the car. Consequently, the better the battery source, the more expensive the RC Car.
In addition to all of the above components, another factor that makes RC Cars for Kids worth the hype is the exterior design or bodywork. The details in the finishing of some of these RC Cars really make it worthwhile for the kids who play with them. The bodywork also determines to a large extent whether the RC Car will look and feel like a real car.
