Simple Remote Control Armored Tank

Introduction: Simple Remote Control Armored Tank

R/C doesn't always mean its wireless, sometimes its just remote controlled instead of the more popular radio controlled but this guy is still an excellent cure to general boredom or if you just feel like being lazy and want something to do. i had the motor on top connected to a rubber band launcher but i don't have any rubber bands right now and the gun doesn't look very good anyway, besides, this way you can see more of whats underneath it.

the armor is just an old CD drive casing and the "turret" housing is just an old floppy drive casing
the tank part is just a Tamiya "track and wheel" set (http://www.tamiyausa.com/items/geniuseries-educational-kits-50/educational-construction-38000/track-and-wheel-set-70100) and a double gearbox set (http://www.tamiyausa.com/items/geniuseries-educational-kits-50/educational-construction-38000/double-gearbox-70168)

id upload a video, but the web filter wont let me, sorry.
