How does a 2 channel radio and reciever set(remote control) work? How would I connect one to an electric motor?? Answered

I am trying to see if it is possible to use a 2 channel radio and reciever set( remote- control) to turn on an electric motor and off. And if it is possible, how would I be able to do it?

Get a toy Radio Control car with left/right steering or a tank. Cut the motor wires off at the motors, and cut the battery wires off at the case and power switch, and remove the receiver.
Look around on the instructables site for my "==Relay Motor Controller Paint==" schematic. It uses four 5volt relays. Connect the RC motor wires to the relay coils where the schematic shows PIC.
Now you can control big motors with a toy RC.
