Are you a Warhammer gaming enthusiast? This one's for you!
This is my Tzeentch Sorcerer Lord on Disc, revised with added 3 LED's , a motor, a micro (PIC) and small battery.
This instructable covers the completed build and issues.
Step 1: Circuit
The basic idea here was to take a small, 8 pin micro to control 3 LEDs and a motor, with as small a supply as possible.
Use of the "helping-hands", as always, is a good idea. These things have two clips to hold whatever you are working on.
No schematic was needed, as the impementation is very simple;
An 8 pin micro (Microchip PIC) with 3 output pins going straight to LEDs, and 2 output pins going to 1 motor.
The LED's used are a Blue, White and Red surface mount type.
The Motor used was ripped from a broken indoor micro helecopter.
The battery (small Lipo) was also ripped from the heli, but i already plan to use another source for more power.
A switch was added for On/Off.
