- controlled remotely using radio signals
Running and directing a remote device by wireless transmission. For decades, miniature model planes and cars have been built with radio controls so they can be run free of wires and cables. The model contains a receiver and the player uses a handheld transmitter to steer it. Robotic devices are also built with radio control, many providing two-way feedback with video capabilities so the user can emulate the robot's view. See radio.
