RX TX pair of small RC car Project

Hello Guys,

Had been away for a while..

Missed you all.

So this time I am working on a project of a RC car

Small on easy one yet i am stuck in the RC part of it...

I want it simple,

I know I can achieve this with Arduino XBees and all but this time I wanna keep this simple..

I want a TX RX pair with which i can just run the motor with the help of a switch..

thats it...

Just a button connected to TX and a motor connected to the RX along with the battery

I heard there are some readymade pairs available for this purpose but even after an hour on google..

I couldn't get the required thing.. 

... XD

THanks in Advance

Hey,, I think all you need to do is just press the button on a remote to make a motor run once the motor starts running you may do this,, or else the simplest way would be like why don't try to buy a RC car just replace that one with your own car?? Isn't simple?? I hope this works out. Read here,,

Easy and neatly explained!

If all you want to do is press a button on a remote to make a motor run, why not just get a really cheap RC car and take the receiver board out of it?  The receiver board almost always has the reciever and an h bridge to do exactly what you want.  Just disconnect the motor and connect to the motor you want to control.  If the new motor takes more current, you can use transistors or an h bridge chip to increase current capability. The HT12 chips you linked are designed more for things like garage door openers or remote car door locks.  They could be used, but it would be more complex than the rc car.

Ahhh its simple.. and I think I will go for HT12

I need a 4 channel rc module so I will need 2 rc cars.. looking at the overall cost making circuit with HT12 will be cheaper Like at half the cost.

Thanks anyways I ll keep both th option open

This is way more than you need but its well done and uses the cheap ebay rx/tx modules
