Introduction: Mini Plane Ride
I got a few motors the other day and I made a tiny ride for my mini city. This is how I made it. If you have any ideas of what I can add into my city, I am open for suggestions if you would like to put those ideas into the comments.
Step 1: Body of Ride
Make a cylinder at 98mm by 98mm by 1mm. Then make a room for the motor to go in. Now align the two pieces together and that piece is done.
Step 2: Beams
This step you will need a box sized at 5mm by 80mm by 2mm. Then rotate it to make as many ride things this project will have (From 2-Infinity). In the very center of this you will need a whole to put the motor through.
Step 3: Riding Part
Now you can design a plane or something that your mini people can ride in. Whatever you decide for your ride, please post what you did in the comments below.
Step 4: 3D Print
Take your parts and export them to a slicing software. Now print your parts. They should only take about two hours to print.
Step 5: Start Build
Start laying out your parts. You should have; 6 printed parts, wires, motor, motor holder, battery holder, vehicles/people, heat shrink, hot glue, a switch, a paper clip, and a soldering iron.
Step 6: Build Part 1
Get your battery holder out and cut and splice the red wire in the middle. Attach the switch to the red wire where you cut it.
Step 7: Build Part 2
Now solder the red and black wires onto the motor.
Step 8: Build Part 3
Put the motor in the motor holder. Put the motor where it is going to be and hot glue it into place.
Step 9: Build Part 4
Get the paperclip and cut it to about 3cm long. Put one end of the paperclip in a airplane and the other end on the beam as shown in the pics above.
Step 10: Build Part 5
If the whole that goes on the motor is to big, get paint out and put a bit of paint in the whole to make it a bit smaller.
Step 11: Ta-Da!
Now put the pieces together and you are done. Sorry about all of the people laying on the ground in the pic.
