DO-IT-YOURSELF-ENTRY --- PURPOSE: To assist a child with upper extremity disabilities with operating remote control cars. A two-stick controller for model airplanes was more manageable for the child, who lacked the grip strength to use the pistol grip controller for remote-controlled cars and trucks. The cars were set up to be controlled by a single stick, with steering and speed control on the same stick. The controller operates similarly to that of a powered wheelchair and has adjustable-tension sticks to make them easier to use. MATERIALS: Remote control vehicle and model airplane controller.
