Building your own RC vehicles can seem like a daunting task at first but once you get familiar with the components you’ll realise it’s not that hard. You can go down two main routes:

  1. Buy off the shelf transmitters and receivers. This is a good approach to start with because it is basically plug and play however it is usually expensive and you can be limited in how many controls you can fit into the model.
  2. Build your own custom circuit from scratch. This is my preferred approach but it has a steeper learning curve as you’ll need to learn about electronic components and programming. On the other hand you can pretty much add an infinite amount of control to your model.
