Radio controlled toy


I originally posted this a month ago but I don't think it got onto the newsgroup. I will post it again because I am preparing to make a new post.


Thankyou to everyone who has responded to my post. I appreciate that a little bit of feedback makes a task seem less daunting 8). I am going to go and buy the parts and try to construct a replacement transmitter. I will let you know how well it goes.

L1 is possibly an inductor (RF Choke) or a combination inductor capacitor. L2 is a set of windings to decrease the size of the antenna. Xtal is set at

JK> Do you have a picture of the PCB itself somewhere?

Very difficult to get a picture that isn't blurry with my current equipment.

JK> I'd trust the scope over the meter.

I think I have been using it wrong 8). I'll make the readings again and resubmit.
