    I have a RC car and It needs 2 power source, one for the car and one for the remote (i.e two  1.5V batteries )
    My question is – instead of the two 1.5 V batteries – Can I power it using the output of Raspberry Pi that has 3.3V ? without damaging the Raspberry Pi.

    Yes, you can use the 3.3 v output of the raspberry pi instead of two 1.5v batteries to power up the remote. As long as the remote is not drawing too much excessive current, it won’t damage your raspberry. But, why would you do that? I mean, you will just be able to power up that remote and not doing any control action. So, this won’t be a convenient idea.

    We will be happy to hear your experience of your experiments.
