RC + Arduino

Hello...I am trying to plan for a project and I am very new to this area. Currently, I am thinking of building an helicopter and a tank...but I am not sure which wireless controller is compatible with the Arduino Uno R3....or is it that all controllers are compatible?

Thanks a lot for your help!

Hey! I'm not to knolegeble in radio communication, but I have seen some buy regular rc toys and take apart the controller and wire it up to the arduino. Therefore giving you control of the vehicle. But this is primitive, but it can get the job done. What do you mean by controller? like a physical radio controller, or like a shield, like Xbee?

Do you want a controller with joysticks or do you want wireless radios? Describe what you want to achieve in some details. Building a heli is not related to arduino. Which part does arduino play?
