Step 1: Supplies

Picture of Supplies

1) A D.C. Motor

2) A switch

3) A 9V. battery

4) A 9V. battery clip

5) A propeller

6) Duct tape

7) A toy car(tall enough to get the proppeler clear from hitting the ground.)

Step 2: The Engine

Sorry about not being able to show how I made the Engine but I'll do what I can, and if you still can't get it, go freestyle!

Put the motor on the 9V.And put the switch on the opposite end. Bundle the wires in between the switch and motor and tape everything in place. Put the proppeler on the end of the motor and secure it so it stays in place. (I used hot glue.)

Step 3: The Car Needs To...

Picture of The Car Needs To...

1) have big wheels for MAXIMUM efficiancy ( I know I spelled that wrong.)

2) be tall enough to keep the proppeler from slashing the ground.

3) NOT be one that you push forward and wheels spin faster with every push.

4) (most importantly) look cool!!!!!

Step 4: Put It Together

Tape the engine to the top of the car being sure that it is stable, straight, and (pretty much) level. (can't get any harder than that!!!!)

Step 5: Video

Cool. It might be helpful to some if you showed us how to make a propeller, as some of us don't have spare ones. ;-)

happy? (step 6)

Bran (author)instructa-fan2007-07-27

Um, wow. I didn't mean to be harsh, I just thought it might help others.

instructa-fan (author)Bran2007-07-28

why do you think i'm being harsh? cuz "get off my ass"? thats cuz i did an hours worth of googling to find a way so i made one up and was crankie at the end...

No need to be harsh... I put in "Make a propeller" into google and this was the second link:

Make your own propeller

It only took a minute...

yah i saw that one and thought it would be too big...

How so? You cut the bottle sides down to the size you need them to be.
