Introduction: CPU Fan Powered Car (Reused)
If you have read any of my other Instructables, you know I like using leftover food containers for robots. This is a little different, but still fun. Also, this has PLENTY of room for upgrades, so check back regularly.
9-12 volt CPU fan
9 v battery and clip
Non-motorized car, preferably flat (reuse an old one)
Tape and/or glue
Soldering iron and gear
Heat gun and tubing
(OPT.) 0.3 micro farad cap
Step 1: Fan Wiring and Tubing
Solder the motor and capacitor. Then, shrink the heat shrink tubing on to the wires. Pull on the tubing to make sure it's tight.
Step 2: Assembly
Tape (or glue) the fan assembly on to the car. Tape the 9v battery on the top and test fan. If it doesn't work solder it together to fix it. Also, make sure there are no obstructions in the way of the blades.
Step 3: Finish!
Set it down on the floor and turn the fan on. Give it a small push and watch. If it works, congratulations!
HAVE FUN, g3holliday
