However, while typing: I could imagine modding battery motors, so that they are not powered by AA-types but a Li-Po battery instead, plus such ESP module.
I actually have all the parts for that lying around, haven't got around to actually do it, though. Modding those red battery motors is quite simple (can't tell for the other battery motors as I don't have any others)

But then it's not KNEX.
That's why it would be so called "3rd party" -> not official, but still usable in the system. Just because K'NEX lacks to make something similar...

It's not a big deal to me but some people would consider it cheating.

Good! Normally I'm a "purist" too (certainly when it comes to LEGO) but not so much when it comes to motors, or K'NEX, or in this case, both.

If I had a Remote motor like that or one with light sensors or momentary touch sensors, I would rebuild some of my biggest builds. Currently I am making an ATM, Remote motors would be way easier then rewiring motors. Or in a crane build, where multiple motors need to be running in sync. Or in an actual model town that has a bridge and canal. An infrared sensor could detect an incoming broat thus raisung the bridge. I mean the possibility are endless, whereas right now, I am limited to wiring motors for each build.
