RC Car Backfire




Introduction: RC Car Backfire

I evaluated the signal of the ESC via the Arduino to make the backfire look realistic. The Backfire is triggered when you go fast from full throttle.

What you will need:

Arduino Nano

Y-cable JR

Servo 20 kg

gas burner

piece of pipe

cable ties

You will <3 it

Step 1: Schematic Composition

Step 2: Arduino Code

Step 3: Assemble

Attach the servo to the burner. In my case, I did it with superglue. Works perfect.

Be creative. :-)

Step 4: Stay Tuned

Currently my project is in the development phase. The next step will be to build an exhaust that looks realistic.

stay tuned
