Photoshop brushes? Answered

I need a brush that has a basic shape, like a leaf: an oval with two points. I also need it to alternate between several shades of green. How hard would this be? I want it to alternate automatically. I'm using this to kind of do a "weeping willow" effect.

Can I use a brushed DC motor directly without a speed controller?

The hobby shop people convinced me that there was no way to hook up a regular motor to my receiver without a ESC.  Even if the motor is all-on or all-off, I don't care.  I just want to be able to control it without a speed control.  Please help me!! I have faith in you people!!  Thanks in advance.

Has anyone seen this motor and know how to run it?

Hi, I got A Rckit from my dads freind and was going to use it to drive a rc car. I set it up and it worked for awhile but I think it was the wrong ESC/Receiver and It went POOF when I was running it normally. A few months later I orderd a proper RC system To go with my arduino and after driving a few small cars and robots I decided to make somthing with more power. I found in My drawer the motors again and decided to run somthing with more power. I have No idea the voltage/current of these motors and want to know. After doing lots of rechurch i stumbled across what looked like the right reciver and batterys. I booked marked the page and couldn't find the motors. recentley i found what looks like the right motors but I am not sure (the ones I have the part nums are smudged). Does anyone reconize the motors or know if they are the same as the ones that I found. I am not looking to buy any driving systems for the motors. LINKS. Reciver/esc.  (looking at pics the one i thought was the same isn't) What motors i found thet look the same.   And  this. Batteys that plugged into the reciver.

Brushed DC motor HP requirements for Longboard? Answered

So I have 2 brand new tilt/trim pump motors and thought about making a set of matching electric longboards since products like Boosted Boards seem to have become fairly popular.  I am not too sure whether the tilt/trim motor would be strong enough though, they are a decent size motor though.  But it got me thinking what size is required for an electric longboard? The main problem with the tilt/trim pump motors is that I can't find specs on them anywhere, just specs for tilt/trim pump assemblies they are off of, but nothing about the motor itself other then SAE J1171 Marine rating.  Because of this I thought of buying another DC motor to do the job.  (Picture of tilt/trim motor) The constraints for me is that I have a couple 12 - 24v 100A motor controllers already, for brushed motors only.  As well, I want to just pick up a couple cheap $40 12v, 24AH Sealed led-acid (SLA) batteries from the local Ace Hardware and run either a 12v or 24v motor.   Options on eBay for affordability purposes range from 12v, 24v, 90v and 180v dc, obviously 90v and 180v are out of the question.  Looking through the 12vdc and 24vdc motors, there are many fractional HP motors available.  I was looking at something like this; http://www.ebay.com/itm/172252712203?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName;=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT Running 1/4 HP at 24v, would 1/4HP be enough though?  I know electric motors HP ratings are lower then petrol engines, a 6.5HP petrol go kart runs about the same as an identical kart with a 1HP electric motor. If that isn't enough I am thinking a 2/3HP motor from Holley might be better? http://www.ebay.com/itm/361524972024?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName;=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT Wondering if someone has an idea for sizing.  I know lots of eBikes and Chinese electric mini bikes and things have 500W motors, so roughly 2/3HP, so I can't imagine I need more then that.  As well I don't want it to go too fast (fear of speed wobbles) but if anyone would have an idea of sizing that would be super helpful!

What would cause a brushed motor to lose strength? Answered

Hi gang, My wife used her mixer to make two pounds of dough for years, but recently the motor would struggle and eventually stop.  The only way to use the mixer now is to make smaller batches of dough. I took a look under the hood, and all seems OK.  The brushes on the motor are clean and making good contact, the cooling fan moves air over the motor as it should, all the gears were well lubricated and moved freely, nothing was broken. What made the motor lose it's mojo?  Is there a way for me to make it strong again?

Driving DC brushed motors with Pi/PWM/Arduino? Answered

I have a few motors (2) that i would need to be able to drive via a PWM input (Probably from pi/arduino). I have been looking at H bridges, and that seems to be my answer, however, I can't figure out which one i need... The motors are identical 9v ~2 amp stall current motors. I would need both directions for each, and would obviously be using an external power supply.  With that said, which H bridge would suite my needs, along with what type of setup? I only have abut 4-6 PWM pins left to use, if that helps.

Windmill Generator - why won't a small brush-less motor work as a windmill generator?

I bought a small brush-less motor that was designed as a motor for a small RC plane. I tested it by spinning it with a drill. I was surprised to find that the motor did not generate much in the way of voltage. Why not? It's too bad - many small brush-less motors are so nice. No brushes, ball bearings, and low cost. I would have thought that forcing a brush-less motor to spin would have generated power. Thanks for any insight.

Ultra cheap RC quadcopter (preferably using brushed motors)

Hey everyone.... :) I'm organising a camp to encourage high school students to take up STEM courses..... and I'd like to have them build their own RC quadcopters. I want the course to have a minimal fee.... so the quad should be INSANELY CHEAP. The quad should be able to do just one thing:FLY. Also, durability is not an issue.... just one or two flights should be sufficient. 1)Can someone please suggest a design using brushed instead of brushless motors? (Simply because they're cheaper) 2)If there's any way I can build a flight controller using off-the-shelf components.... please share your ideas.. 3)I have no idea about how to make the remote control/ RF transmitter....... is it the same as that of an RC toy car remote control? 4)I've come across some lovely designs where the frame is made out of paper or cardboard.... so that's not an issue.  Help in any form is welcome.... I'd love to hear from y'all....  Thanks in advance...:)

Motors for Quadcopters

Hi, I am looking to make a quadcopter as my university project and I kinda run in to some problems deciding which motor I need to choose. I was thinking to choose brushless motors as they are more efficient and they give more RPM. HOwever, my professor says that there's no point using brushless/stepper motors as u can get the same RPMs using brushed motors and its the same thing. Hence, can anyone please guide me which motor is best to use and why should I use brushed or brushless motors. I shall be very glad if someone guide me through it. Thank you :)

World's youngest inventor - holds patent for new broom.

A boy of five is thought to be the UK's youngest person to patent an invention after coming up with a labour-saving broom to help his father sweep leaves.Sam Houghton, of Buxton, Derbyshire, was just three when he came up with a double-headed broom to collect large debris and fine dust simultaneously. Sam, who was inspired by animated inventors Wallace and Gromit and Archie the Inventor from TV series Balamory, said: "I saw my Daddy brushing up and made it. There are two brushes because one gets the big bits and one gets the little bits left behind."I don't know if I want to be an inventor when I grow up but this was fun.""I was swapping from one broom to the other and he asked why. When I said it was to pick up the different leaves and twigs it must have got him thinking."He got a large elastic band from the shed and put it over the two brooms, holding them just the right way to use both together. He then called me and announced that had had made up an invention." The broom works with the coarser brush at the front to pick up larger objects and the finer brush at the back.Sam's invention has been taken up by the UK-IPO, which is hoping to use it to encourage other youngsters to come up with inventions through an initiative called "Cracking Ideas".BBC StoryCracking Ideas websiteIntellectual Property Office
