Switch Adapting a Remote Control Toy

Opening the toy
step 4 of 9

Remove All Screws
Since we are only adapting the remote control unit of the toy, only the remote's shell will need to be opened.

Don't be scared, voiding your product's warranty is exhilarating.

Remove the Battery
It's good practice to remove the battery from any device you're going to work on, especially when you're connecting additional components.

Remove the Controller Lid
Place all the screw in a spot that won't spill or roll away.  Or stick them together with a piece of blue masking tape.
