Nice. Mine were yellow back in the day. I used to open them and stretch the spring, then mod the trigger for longer movement to get a little more speed from the wiper. Don't know if you can still do that.I think I had the original G-plus cars. Back then they were either specific popular muscle cars (57 Bel Air wagon, etc) or driver branded racers. My fave was a Jackie Stewart F1.
also the motors weren't enclosed, so you could rewind the wiring, change the graphite commutators, that sort of stuff.
Nice 'able! these things almost BEG for 3d printed housings now. come to think of it, I might need to design bodies again. I did it years ago with balsa.
Good write up on how to reverse engineer hardware!
Updated Laptop Webcam to USB Cable
VERY nicely done!
POV Globe 24bit true color and simple HW
Huh, never thought about the folding part that way. I'll have to try it! as for the stake, I have one but it never occured to me to keep it handy for when I'm done. 1 last thing, I'm thinking about modding it to see if I can make it a 4 line kite for the braking. been poring over many photos of different kites and I think I got the design down. No biggie if it ruins the kite. I have another and the Christmas haul was good this year. there's some really nice packages available.
Sewing a Mini Paraglider
my biggest problem is when I'm done flying. landing a 2 liner is easy. keeping it from tangling while you retrieve it and try to fold it back up in the wind is a pain. maybe that problem is just a feature of eBay specials. I'm dreading the MESS my 4M foil will make when I replace the cheapo bridle...
Making a Kitchen Knife - Version 2
So, this circuit will allow me to keep my Li-Ion batteries from blowing up during charging?
I have NEVER had any luck with this. Looks really nice...
ATMEGA328 Bootloader Programming Shield for Arduino Uno
Nice board! I'm curious why you included 2 crystals though...
Nice 'able! on step 3, a little trick you can borrow from bike shops is to spray hairspray inside the handle grips. they will then slide on easily. When the hairspray has dried, no slipping at all!
Homemade 3 Axis Gimbal
Uncle Paddy's Irish Lamb Stew
The closest thing to what you are talking about is called a "rocket stove". I DONT know if even THEY get hot enough.
Nice! Always good to have options...
kind of late here, but you probably need a hollow ball that splits apart. you would dump your stuff in, close it up and spin it round like a glass blower.
Don't forget: tell a story about an old sea captain, as you're folding the boat. when done folding, talk about the captain wrecking and how (as you tear each corner off) everyone was lost. when you unfold, you will see all that was found was the captains t-shirt. its a little trick my grandfather taught me years ago.
Neat idea! perhaps you could flesh this out and make it last longer. it's probably burning out LEDs if you don't have a resistor limiting the current they get.
make LEDs dance with music
LOL! I see you've already published this from your YouTube video. already liked it!

Nice 'ible! I have a small container that I made from rosin gathered on a hike. I think it may be easier to harvest if you cut the tree a bit (nothing huge, just an inch or so) and just wait a while (days or weeks). if you plan far enough ahead you can harvest the brittle stuff.
Nice! Wish I'd seen this a few weeks ago. I probably wouldn't have struggled as much on my VW.
that's what has always gotten me: finishing too soon. didn't realize something like Ly-Sol would would work.Nice 'ible.
Problematic for me, as I am in the mid-Atlantic region and it is ALWAYS humid. I'll have to try it next year.
How to Carve a Photo Onto a Pumpkin
Always loved seeing these gags. nice molding technique...
Nice build! my only question is, given a 12v line from a ATX psu, what amperage should I expect on output when stepping down to 5v? over 1A?
Agreed. Heck with the cables! I want to know about the paint job and show my daughter...
could you reshoot the photos? most are either too dark or extremely out of focus. the design is nice, I just need to see the photos.
I always wondered how green clay was made!Just so you know, pure clay kitty litter is bentonite (see step 1). I found that out while reading up on cobb ovens.
oh! it was just getting good! where are steps 6 thru 9?
so that sensor is the food-grade sensor? I like the neatness of your setup.
nice! can you explain how to serve with a side spin? I can see my friend "chopping" the ball when he does it, but I have not been able to do it yet. puts one HECK of a curve on its trajectory!
very nicely done. by any chance have you thought about making a spreadsheet to be able to plug in some other dimensions and come out with custom bridle lengths?
A Self-Contained Data Logging Anemometer
Finally!!! I've been looking for something comprehensive that I could adapt for kite use! You've put it all together in one easy to read place!
LOL! The one constant in this whole 'ible is your wife coming behind you to fix something with the wood filler!Don't worry, it happens to me too...
This whole thing (except for the fan itself) could be built so that all electrical components are away from the box and reduce the chance of liquids spilling in. Or, you could just get marine-grade parts and a tube of silicone caulk.
LOL! #2, 3 & 4...
Been doing this for years, as I found that whole wheat flour make the cookies seem sweeter for the same amount of sugar. I also found that they dry out sooner, so you have to eat 5 at a time instead. I mean, you don't want all that work to be wasted do you?
Convert Towerpro MG995 servo to continuous rotation
don't tell. do another instructable. these are good!
Added to my favorites too...
A-frigging-mazing! I have ALWAYS wondered about stuff like thIS and you just gathered all this stuff together in one central reference. Definitely voting...
Planets Photography Guide
Magnetic Kite Lights
nicely done! at 1st I couldn't see how you would be able to deal with the ribbon. cable, but that slit in the plexiglass is brilliant!
probably not. it will still have some wax in it. I'm sure it would eventually break down. just too long though...
Very nicely done!
