Converting Hardrive into mini version of hypno disc! Answered


Just found an old hardrive and messed about stripping it down to its bare minimum, it's currently on my lap with just the curcuitboard that controls the spindle, the actual spindle and the two discs.

If I plug a molex connector in then it will spin continuosly at its idle speed.

My Question

If I want to somehow power this hardrive to make it continuosly spin wirelessly how could I do this?

I was considering maybe a laptop battery of some sort, I could then control it on a channel on an RC circuit.

I have experience in the remote control wiring part just not sure the best way to power this wirelessly?

Any thoughts would be very greatful to help me on this little challenge! :)
