hi guys i have an idea that to make an toy car which works with the help of solar and battery power system.I think that this will be an good idea that while in the day light we ma use the toy car with the help of solar panels but during night times we have no energy to run the toy car for this we can use battery power cells these power cells get charged during the morning time by this solar panels and these can be charged even using the elctrical current also . these may be bit different but we can get a try on this process also .thats my thought because each and every child wants to play with remote control cars so by keeping them into my mind i have got this idea i think you may like this process.thank you
