Introduction: Popsicle Launcher
4.Popsicle sticks x 4
Step 1: Wiring the Switch
connected one lead from the battery snap connector to one end of the switch
Step 2: Solder
every connection was soldered
Step 3: Other Lead
I had another scrap wire that I connected to the other connection on the switch. it should look like this by now :)
Step 4: Dc Motor
then connect and eventually solder the to leads in the previous step to the DC motor.
Step 5: Test
connect the battery and test, success!!!
Step 6: Frame
take 2 popsicle sticks and arrange/glue them to the battery and motor in this sandwich-like arrangement.
Step 7: Switch Holder
A 3rd popsicle stick will hold the switch in this manner. I used more glue to hold this together.
Step 8: Trim/clean Up
I eventually used electrical tape on the batt and motor to ensure they stay put and cut off some protrusions.
Step 9: Make a Hole in the Prop
the propeller...i had a small screwdriver with roughly the same size as the shaft of the dc motor. i made the hole by heating the screwdriver up (candle) and poking thru the popsicle stick. (bcs i like to play with fire)
Step 10: Form the Twist
twist the propsicle (prop+pop) sorry not that funny :/
Step 11: ENJOY!!!
then go outside and HAVE FUN!!!!!!!
