My Home Made Rc Pickup Truck From Junk

Introduction: My Home Made Rc Pickup Truck From Junk

About: DIY hobbyist since childhood

this is one of my designs that i build using my own idea and concept of powering up and rc toy...
the aim of the project is use my junk as a source(usually it is a limited source) and use only a transmitter,reciever, and a small piece of motor from a original rc toy...

it was built from scratch...

    you could of used a voltage doubler withe a circuit protection system not on the batteries but the motors that's 9v that's all you need not 36 iv built simmler progects so... i know a thing or two

    nope! the voltage doubler is not applicable to this design because of the quality of the batteries that i used. those batteries cant give enough power to the motor if i will use that because it can create major losses so the result will be no mechanical output at all. and the motor requires a lot of torque! the motor only aside from the gear box!

    torque is inversely proportional to speed!

    mine looks like a toy grade but it gives a torque and speed of a hobby grade.. im going to post my other builds.. a rc buggy with the speed of a hobby grade stock... faster than a toy grade buggy... and another scale crawler, my second prototype...

    OK, so you just knew the motor was bigger, hence being more powerful. I assumed the motor in a cassette player would be reasonably small

    it really depends on a couplr things:
    1: the windings onthe motor. different windings give different results
    2: the cassette player could have been from the 1980s?
    3: the strength of the magnets in the motor. mor magnet power means it will rotate faster. a moto works by continuously reversing the current so that the magnets constantly reject the powered windings. go to howstuffworks.com to find out more on motors, as i am not a motor enthusiast.

    about the cassette player? i know. most cassette players have unreasonably large motors in them for some reason. i was joking. as for the motor, i read a book on that, and i am pretty sure that's how it was. i cant be positive about that though, because i read the book a while ago

    i am. i am going to try to make an rc car with a 9v mainboard, giving me lots of speed, in a die-cast BMW Z8 body. wish me luck!

    this one is similar to the design of a china rc car, you can use this one if you want..

    is there a smaller and lighter alternative? or one that performs better? i havent built an rc car from scraps before, so this is proving quite difficult. i made the chassis out of mekano pieces, so its easy to modify and edit. and like you, i am trying to do this from scraps too, except for the engine, i want one that goes fast, and i dont really have a cassette player lying around. ill keep searching for one, because the motor yo used sure seems to give some results!
