Now like you i wanted an RC-XD that worked. So i made this instructable to teach you a quick, fun, and easy way to make an RC-XD for paintball and airsoft.
Step 1: Getting the Stuff
For this you need:
$10 rc car
$1 mouse trap
already had Battery box
Step 2: Assembling the Battery Box
Take the battery box and tape it to the car. Find the power source wires for your car. Now find the positive terminal and pinch the red wire on there. Now do the same for the black but on the negative terminal.
Step 3: Making the Bumper
Take some wire and wrap and secure it to the trigger of the mouse trap. You can ,if you want to, Make a cardboard bumper on the wire to make it look more like the rc-xd , i didn't do this for time reasons and it looks cool enough without it.
Step 4: Making the "explosive"
Now take the rubber band, double it (depending on the size) and wrap it around the mouse trap and car. Take the cloth or tape and put it around the arm to make a catapult.
Step 5: Now Have Some Fun!
Now have some fun! Who knows you could win an airsoft or paintball tournament with this baby. Also I would love to see some pictures, videos, or anything else and yes feel free to upgrade it with anything you want but please I would love to see another RC-XD in someone elses hands not just mine. (I mean by making your own, I couldn't part with this thing.) So any upgrades, new versions, or direct copies please send pics or videos to me. Have Some Fun!!!!
