Introduction: DIY RC Fireworks Ignition System
This Instructable will show you how to make a safe remote controlled fireworks detonator that reduces accidents like skin burn and accidental explosions. Every year hhere in the Philippines All you need is $10, 30 minutes of time, RC Car, Chopsticks, 6 volts VRLA battery, Wire and a Container. Please rate this as a 5 star. Have a Happy New Year.
RC detonator - Circuit that allows you to ignite fireworks without using a match. Just press the button on the remote and the fireworks ignites
There is a video at the last page "it was really fun.
Me and my father had a great time.
We had a lot of fireworks.
Step 1: Things to Buy
The materials needed for this project.
Step 2: Schematic Diagrams
These are the diagrams.

b. Transmitter 4th picture.
Step 3: Disassembling the Car
Disassemble the car with a screw driver.
Step 4: Getting the Circuit
Take of the circuit, or you can make one.
Step 5: Making the Antenna
Wind the antenna wire around the chopstick.
Step 6: Connecting the Circuit to the Relay
Take of the motors a replace the motor wirings with a relay.
Some cars are not powerful enough to detonate so I added mine a relay.
Adding a relay prevents the circuit from burning.
Step 7: Making the Coil
Use a thick wire for this but not too thick or else it will not burn just use the right thickness that your battery can burn again and again. Use a screw driver to wind on the screw driver. After making the coil epoxy it to the tip of a chop stick and connect a thick coated wire.
Step 8: Connecting the Battery and the Coil
Connect the Battery, Coil and Relay in series.
Step 9: Glue It
Use a glue gun or epoxy to tuck everything in place.
Step 10: Testing It
Turn on everything and press the accelerate button at the remote the coil should become red without melting.
Step 11: Done
Have FUN ! :)
Please rate it 5 stars.
Step 12: Here Is Our New Year Celebration With the Detonator (It's Fun)
The coil can be use more than 100 times. Just don't press the remote to long
(just only 10 sec. max) or it will burn the coil. Sound fun doesn't it. I'm with my father celebrating new year with it we even use it for a fountain fireworks.
