Remote controlled toys are battery- or gas-powered toys that can be controlled from a specific distance using a specialized transmitter, called a remote. Remote control toys are usually powered by electric motors or rechargeable batteries. All remote control toys require a transmitter or a remote, which has control buttons, or a joystick, or triggers, or a wheel for turning, etc. The distance from which the remote control toys can be operated varies depending on the type of power and the construction and mechanism of the toy. The working mechanism of a remote control toy is based on the technique of sending and receiving electro-magnetic or radio waves. An antenna is present on the remote, and it sends signals to a circuit board located inside the toy and activates the motors, thus enabling the toy to move in the desired direction. Broadly stating, the remote control toys work with four elements, namely, transmitter, receiver, motors, and a power source. These toys have been trending in the market since the last few decades. Initially, remote controlled toys also consisted of long wires; later, wireless technology was developed. However, presently, the variety, availability and price have increased considerably as compared to the last few decades.
