Remote control is all the rage

Bad news: a component in my RC car burned out. My cat no longer has anything chunky to chase.

Good news: In pulling it apart while it was still working I learned a few things about rudimentary RC control, including the fact that motors can be on/off switches if you give them the right cog.

I can probably cannibalise the car’s parts to make an RC helicopter from scratch, but it’s rudimentary and the controls won’t be intuitive; having only no-tilt and full-tilt to choose from makes flying a helicopter tedious (and very dangerous).

Who wants to donate money so I can start buying electronics equipment?

That's all there is, there isn't any more.
