What do you guys do with your Old RC Toys?
Hello Everyone This is my first time posting here. I was curious what do any of you guys do if you find any unused Radio Shack 4x4's that does not now have the transmitter? In addition I have a Tyco RC Hovercraft with a Transmitter. They look great and used to run great. I have got new NiCD packs and they turn on and lights and the hovercraft rises. I just have no way to control and handle them all. I know you can tell by the nature of this question that I am definite noob to RC. I only have been flying a Blade micro quad copter. If anyone can please offer any suggestions on how I can enjoy these toys again. Please let me know and I Thank You Very Much in advance.

If you want to put in the money and effort, you could probably retrofit them with industry-standard components (ESCs, radios, servos). You'd end up with vehicles that are better than they were when they were brand-new.
Other than that, they're mostly just paperweights. You might be able to find original transmitters for them on eBay or something, but I doubt there's much of a supply out there.

EBay or Craigslist I say
Store brand R/C's just aren't worth keeping, but there always folks out there looking to either kit bash for scale hobby projects and even some that want to relive a childhood experience
That's the way I felt about this inflatable Radio Shack robot lol
I remember begging my dad for one when I was 3 years old
30 years later, I picked this one up off of EBay and had my fun with it, but soon realized the party was short lived, so back on sale it goes lol
