QotD: R/C

Question: Have you ever owned a remote control toy/thing?

My Answer: I had a remote controlled car as a kid. It ran on a battery and was good for about 30 minutes of fun before it'd just dog out. It went straight, backwards, and it turned. And that was about it. Still, it was one of my favorite Christmas presents. I wonder if my parents know that…

  1. I had a total of three R/C cars. The first two were off-the-shelf items, the third one was a "real" one. I had to overhaul it after each ride, because the bearings crapped out each time...

    All were battery-based, because I'm an electicity fetishist. 😉

  2. I had a nifty electric RC car when I was younger. Thing was great at off-roading.

  3. I had one of the Tyco 9.6v RC cars when the FIRST came out (back in the late 80s/early 90s whenever the heck that was). I was the envy of the block at the time. Easily the fastest R/C car in the neighborhood at the time. Loved off-roading with that thing as well. It's still around here somewhere, collecting dust (can't find the exact battery packs for it anymore).
