What can the RC 1577 Forklift Lift

What can the RC 1577 Forklift Lift

Well I’ve been out and about and displaying all of the remark control toys that I have there’s been a lot of questions asked of the remote controlled forklift from HuINa model 1577.
 

Now I’ve seen lots of videos posted on YouTube of the forklift carrying small people on the trailer or even on top of the forklift self. These are just small children no more than 4 to 8 kgs in weight. Thinking that a graph you can carry a small child I put my 20 kg daughter on the back of the trailer and unfortunately the forklift was not able to tow her. Then I have another customer who had bought a forklift and trailer from me at one of the, YoYo! Yoyo came up to me at the Moreton Bay Small Business Expo and was all excited to say that her son loves using his forklift and trailer. Now he is helping her with the chores around the house, he helps to set the table by taking the dinner plates and drinks and cutlery on his trailer of the forklift.

 After hearing this I thought wow this child knows how to think outside of the square and uses his imagination. Then I thought well what else can we carry on our forklift and trailer? After watching a few videos from overseas on YouTube of the things that they had on their forklift and trailer I thought okay I’m gonna give it ago.

 So in true Aussie fashion, I grab the first thing that was in the fridge, you could only imagine what that was being Aussie, and put them on a pallet of the forklift to see if a would lift the drinks. Loan behold I put for standard 345 mil drinks on the pallet What can the HuINa 1577 RC Forklift and 1578 Trailer lift or tow?to begin with and unfortunately was just a little bit too heavy! So I went down wondering to 3x345 mil drinks out of my fridge on the pallet and left it with the forklift no dramas whatsoever. However we did have a little drama when it came to driving the forklift with the three drinks, as it was a bit front heavy.

 I was so excited I have the kids in the background cheering and clapping along. So I thought okay well what else can this forklift? My son has made a ramp for his cars, so I decided to drive the forklift down the ramp to see how stable to see how good it was. And you will just have to watch the video to see how it went!

 Not satisfied with just that I had to take the next step further put the trailer on the forklift this time and put the three drinks on the trailer to see if tow. And well that was no dramas at all for the forklift. Funny enough I light bulb in my brain. Why don’t I put the drinks back on the palate and have the trailer on the back of the forklift to help stabilize the forklift well the drinks are on the front.

 Well I just solve my problem. The forklift with the trailer on the back can carry up to 3 drinks on its tynes and tow more on the trailer at the same time.

 Can you only imagine what you could do with this forklift and trailer now!

 You are now at a party and you've got your forklift and trailer, you've run out of drinks and snacks, put a note on your forklift asking for more drinks and snacks. Drive your forklift with trailer over to the area where everyone is standing and get someone’s attention.

They then laugh and point at you and call you names, but again in true Aussie fashion, they load up your forklift with your drinks and your snacks and you get to drive it back to where you’re sitting. Now that is a true Aussie!

Top Tips for Choosing Remote Controlled Toys for Young Children

Top Tips for Choosing Remote Controlled Toys for Young Children

Remote control toys make excellent toys for young children. They’re both fun and educational, providing hours of fun for kids and their parents. Even toddlers can have fun with remote control toys, especially if they have easy-to-use controllers.

Toddlers can be attracted by the lights and sounds the toy might have, and they love having control over something they can move. If you want to get your child a remote control toy, you need to think about it carefully. Choosing one for a younger child is different to selecting a toy for an older child or teenager. There are several factors you should think about.

Consider Safety

The safety of the toy is no doubt at the forefront of your mind. You’re aware that it will need batteries and have electrical components. There’s also the worry that parts of the toy could come away from the main body. Firstly, you can consider the battery compartment of the toy. It needs to be screwed in so that your child can’t accidentally pop it off and get to the batteries. You’ll need batteries for both toy and controller. So make sure you check the compartment on both components. You should also look at the design of the toy and controller to ensure there are no choking hazards or sharp pieces.

Look at Usability and Age Appropriateness

You need to take your child’s age into account when you’re choosing their remote control toy. One of the reasons for this is that they need to be able to use the controller easily. Remote control toys can be excellent for helping to improve motor control. However, the controller needs to be the right size and have buttons that are easy to use. Too many buttons could get confusing for a toddler, so don’t choose anything too complicated. One button to go and one to turn is all they need to get started.

Engagement

If you want to help your child to engage with the toy, you should consider a couple of factors. Firstly, think about what the toy looks like. Younger children won’t mind if it looks like a real car, bike or helicopter. In fact, they might find a favourite character more engaging. But older kids might prefer something more realistic. Another factor in engagement is the function of the toy. Lights and sounds from the toy can help children to link what they are doing to what the toy is doing. For your own sake, and your child’s ears, you might want a toy with a volume button or sound-off switch.

The Technical Stuff

You shouldn’t have to worry too much about the the technicalities of the toy. However, you need to consider the frequency if you buy more than one toy. For two toys to operate at once, they need to be on separate radio frequencies. So if you’re getting a toy for each of your children, it’s best to take this into account.

Kids of all ages enjoy having fun with remote control toys. Just make sure that the one you pick is age-appropriate.

Who would have thought it would do this?

Who would have thought it would do this?

I had a question for a potential buyer on Facebook the other week. His question was - "Can these get me a beer?" WELL I said let me see!

Now off I go and grab a can of soft drink (we didn't have any beer in the house), and grabbed the Timber Grab Excavator. We set it all up to video thinking it was going to take a couple of goes to get it right, you know practice.....

Low and behold - first go we got the timber excavator to grab the drink while it was lying on it's side. This was exciting to us as we didn't think it was going to work!

 

WOW we are on a winner here, cause now we don't have to get up to get a drink from the esky!!! All we have to do is set up the drinks in the esky so they are on their sides and there we go we have a drink brought to me!

Now it's time to try out the Ball Grab Excavator to see if it can do the same think?? 

What can I play with that is not messy and my remote controlled vehicles?

What can I play with that is not messy and my remote controlled vehicles?

We love playing with our remote controlled excavators and dump trucks by sand or dirt is just too messy, what else could I use?

So, sand or dirt can be lots of fun to play with, but it can also be messy. Not only do the kids get covered in sand or dirt, so do the vehicles. Then there is where do you keep the pile of sand? How do I keep it clean? All these questions and concerns.

You could consider not playing in sand or dirt at all, but is that really what you want to do? Is that fun? Well yes it could be fun, depending on which vehicle you have. Vehicles like the forklift yes on concrete is great, but if you want to dig and play with your excavator or bulldozer and dump truck well then no it's not as fun.

Have you considered Kinetic sand or magic sand? Well I hadn't until just recent. I had bad reports about Kinetic sand, like toxic, kids eating it and so on. Now that could be the case for mass produced sand, but what about sand you make yourself?

After doing some research and finding different recipes, I believe that home made kinetic sand could be the way to go. You can make as much or as little as you like. you can store it in a container and not make nearly as much mess as you would with just sand.

One of the easiest recipes I have found only uses 5 items and one is optional.

Here you go, why not give it a go?

Benefits of RC Toys for Young Children

Young children can develop their motor skills by using remote toys. They will learn about cause-and-effect play as they work out which buttons make the car go in each direction. Many radio controlled toys for toddlers have fun features to make them even more appealing to youngsters. They might feature sound effects and lights, which can be used to encourage imaginative play. Parents can set up an obstacle course with ramps for their toddler to drive the car up and down, or tunnels for them to go through. This is a great way to develop a child’s hand-eye co-ordination.

Benefits of RC Toys for Older Kids

For older children, these toys offer a great way to bond with siblings, friends and even parents. Choose a toy which has more than one channel, so several vehicles can race at once. By playing together with RC vehicles, children learn about taking turns and avoiding crashing into each other’s cars.

There are varieties of RC toys which need to be built, or partially built prior to use. Building a toy together is a great way for parents and children to spend quality time together. Some need to be painted or decorated, and others can be customized to suit your child’s tastes. Doing a task like this is great for children to practice their artistic and engineering skills.

Using a RC vehicle is great for your child to start teaching themselves about mathematics and physics without even realizing it. If they have a more complicated toy like a helicopter or airplane, the benefits are even greater. These toys take more skill to learn to use well, and children will feel very proud when they are showing off their new tricks to their friends and parents!

What is the definition of remote controlled or radio controlled?

What is the definition of remote controlled or radio controlled?

A remote control vehicle is defined as any vehicle that is teleoperate by a means that does not restrict its motion with an origin external to the device. This often a radio control device, cable between control and vehicle, or an infrared controller, A remote control vehicle or RCV differs from a robot in the the RCV is always controlled by a human and takes no positive action autonomously.

This explanation is from wikipedia.org - so what does this mean in real terms?

This just means that is vehicle is controlled by a controller that is not attached to the vehicle via a cable or cord and that only humans can operate the vehicle.

So, for you this means you get to operate the vehicle to what you want it to do. In the case of remote controlled heavy vehicles ie. dump truck, excavator, bulldozer or crane you get to use these toys as if you were using them on a real life vehicle. Meaning lots of fun for kids of all ages.

How to work out the scale of Radio Controlled Vehicles

How to work out the scale of Radio Controlled Vehicles

Radio controlled vehicles are modelled after full-size cars, trucks, boats, and aircraft. The scale of the RC is its size as compared to the real, full-size version. A 1:10 scale Formula 1 Indy car would be 1/10th or 10 times smaller than the size of the real thing.

Common RC Scales
RC models come in many scales such 1:6, 1:8, 1:10, and 1:12. Mini-RCs come in much smaller scales including 1:28 and 1:64. Because the scale is relative to the full-size vehicle, two vehicles of the same scale may be vastly different in size to each other. A 1:8 scale sports car is much smaller than a 1:8 Army tank because a full-size sports car is much smaller than a full-size tank.

Generally, when talking about the size or scale of an RC, it is referred to as 1:8 scale (or 1/8th scale). However, the terms scale model, scale RC, or large-scale RC typically describe an RC vehicle that is not only a scaled down version of another vehicle in size, but also an authentic, realistic replica in body styling, paint job, and performance.
