You will need
- the electric motor or the internal combustion engine, chassis, oil, set of special paints, building models, batteries
First, decide what kind of model you want to collect. This can be a car, helicopter, plane or speed boat. The basic principle of the build is the same. The difference is in the outer shell of the model - her body. For example, we will collect the carmodel. You must select the body of the model. It is possible to choose any to your taste because the chassis models are unique, that is suitable for all buildings.
Case you can buy ready-made. And you can do it yourself. Best of all, if the housing is made of plastic. Then you can play with this modelu on the street in almost any weather. Very often, those pieces that are sold in stores are not fully meet the requirements of the Amateur models. They can be inaccurate or not particularly eye-catching. Why decorate the body they desire. Use special paint to give the modela more realistic ke. In stores you can find whole kits for this.
Now we need to think about the most important in the model - the engine. Decide which engine will provide the movement of your modelkey. There are two main types - motor and the internal combustion engine. Each has its pluses and minuses. If you are a beginner in the construction of models, use the motor. He is unpretentious to use and maintain. Also his price is lower.
The next step is the installation of the engine on the chassis. Usually this is nothing complicated. It is only necessary to connect the contacts and carefully attach the motor to the chassis. Note that the motor should not hang out. Check the operation of the chassis. All the gear should fit snugly to each other. If necessary, grease them with special oil.
Your model is almost ready. It remains to insert the batteries in the model and the controller. To check the efficiency and fasten the housing to the chassis. To do this, use a small bolt.
When you use a motor is best to buy rechargeable batteries, they are more expensive than conventional batteries, but used many times.
Carry out all procedures carefully and diligently.
Advice 2: How to do it yourself RC boat
RC boats - one of popular sectors models. People who know how to hold the instrument, quite capable to make a RC boat. Pleasure from the use of models made with their hands, much more than store-bought.
The Internet to find the drawings or detailed description of the scheme the manufacture of radio controlled boats. Also, such schemes you can take in the specialized literature or ask the participants of the thematic forums. Purchase all the necessary parts for making radio-controlled boats: materials for the casing, an electric motor, batteries, remote control, wire and button from the computer mouse.
Fabricate the housing. To do this, from the old cover of the system unit or refrigerator door, cut the appropriate part and bend it with a Vice. For making the bottoms cut out 2 matching parts, solder them and solder to the housing.
Treat all sharp edges, soldering lightly smooth, and cover the body with glue inside.
Instead, use the cover of the system unit the wood. In this case, the bottom must be attached to the housing, and the resulting billet at expansion joints to glue the masking tape on the outside, and the inside handle with glue and glue with fiberglass.
Then treat the surface with an epoxy adhesive, remove the masking tape, tape the corners and clean all surfaces.
Use small pieces of old broken appliances to build add-ons. They can also be done from small wooden wedges or cover of the system unit. Secure the superstructure on the deck and check the strength and watertightness of the whole structure.
Buy a ready-made model boats, if you don't want to make the case.
To a mouse button, solder a small wire. The opposite end of the wires solder to the motor (the positive pole; the negative pole of the motor). The remote connect button from the mouse. Insulate all connections.
Check the functionality of the design: when you press the mouse button, the boat should start moving.
Advice 3: How to make RC model boats
Shipmodeling sport is one of the most interesting. It attracts millions of enthusiasts. Among the available options modeling occupies a special place, the construction of RC models. In obedience to the will of the operator, they can exactly simulate all the maneuvers of a real ship.
You will need
- - fiberglass;
- epoxy or polyester resin;
- - plywood with a thickness of 4-5 mm;
- - the equipment of the radio;
- - motors and batteries;
- - a set of tools;
When building a radio controlled model ship or vessel it is very important to choose the right prototype. The model was well managed, it should have a small ratio of length to width. It means that RC model or a port tug boats will look much more spectacular and interesting features remote control model battleship.
The dimensions of the future model are determined by the need to place it with the receiver equipment control, servos, one or two electric motors and batteries. When properly selected size of the whole apparatus is compactly but without crowding. All its elements must be free access is provided by removable hatches and add-ons. Sometimes doing all the removable deck that provides full access to equipment.
The case of the model wikiepedia of fiberglass on the boob or in the matrix. In the latter case, you can get almost finished building, it will only strengthen the elements of the set and paint. For vyklicky use epoxy or polyester resin.
In the finished building: glue the stern tube and a bushing of the steering wheel. For the motor you need to assemble the regulator, which allows turning the variable resistor to gradually change its momentum. To the handle of the resistor is attached to a small lever that connects to the steering coming from the cars traction. When you turn the knob on the control panel engine model should smoothly change the speed.
Be sure to allow for a simple switch that changes the polarity applied to the motor voltage, it will allow you to change the direction of rotation of the screw. One servo will control the rudder of the model. If two screws, must be provided and mode of operation brasky – that is, when one screw is pulled forward and the other back.
The entire instrument placed in the body evenly, this will avoid her roll. The lower you place all the heavy items, the higher the stability of the model, the more cool and beautiful turns she will be able to perform.
Screw for model, you can solder it by yourself. To do this on a lathe machined brass bushing in the hole it is drilled and tapped under the tree. Then the sleeve is soldered brass blades, ready screw carefully aligned, balanced and polished.
When working on a model learn to do everything very carefully, avoiding the slightest negligence. It is important to learn the high culture of modeling in the future, this will stand in good stead. What made soundly and gently, usually works well. Even those model elements that are under the deck and not normally visible, must be carefully handled.
Provide on the model of the receiving antenna. Look very well paired, located on the sides. The power switch should be placed in a convenient location, it can be combined with any element of the add-ons. For example, the power turns on when you rotate the winch. When holding the model in your hand, be careful of accidental power to the motor can lead to injuries caused by sharp blades. First, immerse the model in water and only then turn on the power.
