Create a unique remote-controlled car with easily available parts.
This guide will share ideas for common materials you can use to create an one-of-a-kind RC car.
Mount servo to chassis as shown. Create and mount steering servo connector piece as shown. Connect steering arms to the connector piece as shown.
hey cool mate,
how fast does it go?
Hello. I was curious as to whether you have instructions to follow based on the above RC Car that was built or perhaps another design? I usually buy the Tamiya Kits but they are a bit expensive; plus I would rather build my own from store bought materials. I have been involved with this lucrative hobby since 1985 and I am always looking for fresh ideas to come up with. Thank you very much for your time.
How do you drive it?
No freaking idea :3
you should put an outer body piece on it to make it look better
oh and your front left and back right wheels are mixed up
i am a bigginer for this,i want more information about this built..please help
please help me to built one of these car please i beg of you i want information about how to attatch thee important parts like the servo and how can i get them.
this is great but it would be nice to get some dimensions, or some more detailed steps. your descriptions are very vague and it’s hard to tell just from pictures how everything was put together.
Please post dimensions and a specific parts list so people who want to build don’t have to guess from pictures.
Btw, more specific instructions :3?
I am beginner i need more information about it……………..but it is nice
Can any one help me……….
please tell how make remote control
Please help me to create a Rc car
Need better instructions like step by step stuff. And it seems like I’m not the only 1. But it doesn’t look like you ppl reply to any of the comments. If you decide to. Could you plz give better instructions
Hey guys, I was trying to implement my own project similar to this.
But I was having issue finding the wheels and the axle you are using with the servo, to rotate the front wheels. Can you help me find those online? Are those even called axles (the metal thing connected to the servo and the wheel)..
you can find a simple way to learn and make rc car from here(http://www.instructables.com/id/REMOTE-CONTROLL-CAR-A-PIECE-OF-CAKE/)
I like how none of the parts links work
Having tried to make something of this sort myself, and being in the process of making a larger scale version, I’d have to say that using the mechanical speed control for a drill isn’t the best idea. Having to buy two servos instead of one so one can control the speed and the other the steering is pretty much the same price as buying a cheap ESC and a single servo, and that brushed motor ESC will likely work far better since you can do helpful things like, oh I don’t know STOP. Or even GO BACKWARDS. I tried a mono-directional ESC car and I can tell you not being able to go backwards is a huge pain. Plus, most ESCs have a BEC or Battery-Elimination-Circuit such that you hook your battery pack up to the ESC and the ESC plugs right into your receiver to both supply a safe voltage (usually 5V) to the receiver as power and, obviously, allow the receiver to communicate with the ESC. So you are actually saving a bit more money there. At my local hobby store I got a nice servo for $38 (https://www.spektrumrc.com/Products/Default.aspx?ProdID=SPMSS6020) but my 20A ESC online was under $20. (http://www.dx.com/p/320a-brushed-esc-speed-controller-w-brake-cooling-fan-for-car-boat-221133) It says 320A but that’s burst current, it’s really 20A continuous current. They also may have sent me the wrong model since the one I got looks just like the one on the product page except it has twice as many (4) motor leads and actually functions as a dual ESC with both motors responding to the same RC signal.
I like how the author suggests that we sacrifice an electric drill to build an RC car.
Of course, it’s a different story if the electric drill is otherwise broken and unusable. But I don’t think everybody has a broken electric drill handy.
What are the syringes for please?!
How thick should the peg board be?!
What rc axle should i get?!
