Hello scott! What is your power supply? the black one with 2 channels.
Can you make a project how to make a mahanic arm from DC motors and can you visit my youtube channel.THANKS!!!
Mahanic arm, NEW THING!
Mahanic arm? Something like that still doesn't exist... Did you mean a mechanical arm?
If yes, I'm pretty sure servo's could work...
i mean a mechanical arm.Thanks for the correction
Do you mean an articulated arm that moves up and down with DC motors?
You'd need gears to do that, since most DC motors spin way too fast. How big would you make it? I think something small could be powered by servo's, but nything bigger than that probably would be easy to make :)
Chat Conversation Start
It's pretty easy. Connect those cells in series ( - of first battery to + of the second one, - of second one to the + of the third one and so on ). Then, solder red wire to the positive contact of the pack and the black one to the negative. Balance leads go from + of the first, second and third cell ( 4th + terminal is + of the whole pack connected to the red cable mentioned before ). Balance leads can be thin, but the power ones should have big gauge ( depending on the current needs ).
i really wish to see u making a Laser Engraver / Cutter using the laser u got from the DVD driverkeep up the great work
I have one question regarding your power bank what if the phone is fully charged and still the phone getting power won't it damage the phone.
6:54pmHi Greatscott I would like to ask you if you know how to make a 4S1P battery pack out of 18650 batteries to be used in a RC Plane so it has to have a balance lead to the batteries and leads for the motor if you know how to do it can you PLEASE let me know and a little drawing would be GREAT Thank You
where do u study?
