Hello everyone,

I was curious to see what yall thought about using one of these and the custom (diy app) for smartphone or tablet to control forward and reverse to drive the kiddos around with on a barbie jeep power wheel. They control steering and i control throttle. Its a stock version with 12v f/r switch.

Thanks in advance!

The ESP8266 is extremely useful, I personally use them in practically all my projects now.

The module here appears to be a single relay, so only useful for either a single direction or a remote kill (though I wouldn't suggest the latter without making it failsafe).

This module also uses the 01 variant, so only breaks out 2 useful pins.

Get something like a wemos and a relay board or H-bridge module to give a real scope for the project.
