3D Printed JET TURBINE

Hey everyone, so I made this super loud jet turbine or engine model which is run by a 1400kv BLDC MOTOR.

this project is kinda simple as we just need to 3D print the body first and then assemble them all together, connect ESC with bldc motor and run it via a simple Arduino x pot sketch.

FIRST, watch the video to understand the context.

Step 1: MATERIALS

Gather everything that we need to build this project,

1. BLCD MOTOR

2. ESC

3. ARDUINO (you can use any arduino for this)

4. 10kOHM POT

5. 12V 10amps (more or less) lithium battery pack

6. 3D printed parts ; get them from here (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3503806)

3D print the parts with any material you like, I prefer using ABS. after printing all the parts, assemble them and add the BLDC motor to this setup. after setting up the body for your jet turbine, we can now add Arduino to this setup.

Step 2: Ciruitory

make a shield or wire everything on a breadboard according to SCH.

Step 3: CODE AND TEST RUN

here's the code, upload this to your Arduino and connect the battery to your ESC and test run your JET TURBINE.

#include //Use the Servo librarey for generating PWM
Servo ESC; //name the servo object, here ESC

void setup()

{

ESC.attach(6); //Generate PWM in pin 6 of Arduino

}

void loop()

{

int throttle = analogRead(A0);

throttle = map(throttle, 0, 400, 0, 180);

ESC.write(throttle);

}
