Create a new Step By Step, Photo, or Video Instructable that fits the guidelines outlined in the right-hand column. Instructables must be published between May 7, 2012 and Jul 2, 2012 (11:59pm PT) to be eligible.


Upon publishing your Instructable you'll see checkboxes for open contests. Select Remote Control Challenge. If you have entries currently eligible for entry, it will also show up by clicking "Enter this Contest" on the right side of this page.


Entries are accepted by Instructables staff within one business day Monday - Friday. What matters is the submission time, not acceptance time.


Instructables members can vote for an entry during the contest plus 3 days after the contest closes.


A panel of judges made up of Instructables staff and respected members of the community rate the finalists. The averages of the ratings determine the winners.


When the winners are decided they will be announced here on the contest page. All entrants will be notified when this happens.

The RC Contest is looking for anything and everything wirelessly controlled. It can be a custom built RC car, a remote controlled light switch, or even a device controlled over wifi. If it is a device that you control without wires, you are good to go. Enter any Step-By-Step, Photo, or Video Instructable and you can win a number of cool prizes, like a super-scale RC fighter jet, a gas-powered RC monster truck, or a smartphone controlled Quadrocopter. If you have been waiting for the perfect opportunity to share your RC innovations, this is it! All systems are go!
