Description

This RC Car was Designed to workaround the need for expensive rc car motors and intricate linkages. When I saw the Open RC truggy, I wanted one, but didn't want to also buy all of the Rc car part needed just to get it working. I used parts that any typical maker may hopefully have. The 9 gram steering servos are mounted to the top a-arms to take away the need for ball joints and a large amount of linkages. For the motor...motors, I recycled my DJI Phantom brushless motors. instead of using any gearing, I simplified the design by making them part of the rear wheels. This creates a great amount of speed while still having a surprising mount of torque. I used a hobby grade rc plane radio and power the car using two 3s lipo batteries. The fasteners vary from m3 nuts and bolts to plastic screws I was able to salvage. The front wheels rotate around a general skateboard bearing. I want to see what others are able to do with this platform. Hopefully improvements will come forth, making the vehicle a reliable open source machine. https://youtu.be/eop02s6c_rk https://youtu.be/3nNnf1uNtOQ
