take an old rc helicopter and make a new toy!

i am pretty sure that this can be done with any helicopter that can be taken apart.

Step 1: Gather Ing the Materials.

im sorry if this picture is fuzzy, but my cam sucks.

the materials are;
1.old rc helicopter
(these are from the heli)
2.the battery recharger
3.the rechargable battery
4.the motor(it needs to have a metal gear)
5.the control panel+antenna
6.the remote control(not in pic)
7.electrical tape

Step 2: Assembly #1

take the battery and the control panel and tape them together as shown.

you need to make sure that the 2 plugs can connect after taping.

Step 3: Assembly #2

take the completed battery assembly and the motor. whe n taping these, you neec to be careful not to tape over the heat holes.

after taping , connect the wire from the motor into the slot.

Step 4: Finishing Up

first get the antenna and tape it to the side of the control panel

then hook up the battery.

there u go!

Step 5: Using It

all u need to do is find something to grind,(plastic is best)
turn on the remote control and the grinder, and rev it up!
I need a new Rc reciver. <br> <br>Can you buy replacement recivers for this model because I got a simmalar reciver and broke it? <br> It was from a rc plane. <br> Where did you buy this helicopter? <br> Is their a online store? <br> <br>Sorry for clogging up comments but I am desprate to get my reciver fixed.
i have a crappy £10 ($20 approx) and its run by a capacitator so theres no need to buy batteries So its gd for this project!
Very nice.. I have also managed to do this from the internal parts of <a href="http://www.remote-island.co.uk/Categories/buy_radio_controlled_tanks_uk.html">RC Tanks</a> PM me if you need any help!
that picture is better then many pictures on instructables
How to turn a $200 toy into a $20 tool ? Ouch!
actually, i used a 30$ peice of crap-quality-crap, and the whole rear rotor system was shatered. =P<br/>
That's better then; turning a broken toy into ... anything is better than just throwing it out.
thanks it is really funny cuz i drilled a hole in a soda can and it spilled on my grandma
cool! seriously, this is really nice. if i can and remember or whatever, ill probably do this.
Still remember to do this?
this is nice. i'll hook it to my dog.
What's the use of using a R/C ;? A switch was to fancy i guess :P
it only had a 2 channel radio??? damn that sucks my micro mosquito has a 3 channel
Your gear looks like it is made of brass. With reference to e.g. this instructable:<br/><a href="https://www.instructables.com/id/E297P86R0DEYVZCM6M/">https://www.instructables.com/id/E297P86R0DEYVZCM6M/</a><br/><br/>-could you adapt the cutting part?<br/><br/>L<br/>
Take a video, then go to YouTube, upload it there, and use the code that they give you to put it up. Won't this wear out the gear? I was thinking about doing this as a head for my homemade Dremel, but it seems it would wear out. The train that I made it from had a gear on it to drive the wheels.
i forgot to mention to use a motop with a hard steel gear.
if anyone will tell me how i will put a video of me usnig it! thnx!!
upload your video to google video or youtube ;) Then click the "video" button while editing and copy/paste the url for the video ;)
