You will need
- Chassis, wheels, a set of small screwdrivers, instructions to components of the motor housing.
Self-Assembly of the machine on the control panel has several advantages. You'll not only save money, but also be able to make such a machine, what you want. First of all decide the amount that you are willing to spend. Range of spare parts and types of machines is very large, the price range is also very large. When the amount is to be determined, we will begin to develop a small plan of the building. Decide what kind of machine you want. You can do it just for the wired remote control, and you can use the remote control which will cost a bit more.
Select the chassis for your future cars. Now you can find a huge number of different chassis, and they are all interchangeable. When buying, pay attention to the quality of the parts. Should be free of inclusions and nicks on the plastic parts. The front wheels should easily turn. Together with chassis are usually sold wheels. They also need to pay much attention. It is best to buy wheels with rubber since plastic have very poor coupling with the surface.
The next step is the choice of motor. This is the most important step, so how do you choose the heart of your future cars. From it will largely depend on the dynamics and technical characteristics of the future model. There are two types of motors for models - electric and petrol. Electric motors require minimal maintenance and have a relatively low price. They are very economical, as the feed from the battery that is easily recharged. Petrol engines have more power but are more expensive and require careful maintenance. And a special fuel has a significant price. If you're new to modeling, feel free to choose the electric motor. You will save money and time.
Now you need to decide which type is the control - wired or wireless. Wire control is cheaper, but the machine will only ride in a radius equal to the length of the wire. The radio unit is a bit more expensive, but allows you to control the car on the distance of coverage of the antenna. It is best to overpay a little and buy the radio unit. Also think about the body of your car. On store shelves you'll be able to find housing for virtually all modern car models. You can also make the case in his own unique sketch.
Now you must collect all components. Take the chassis and attach the motor and the radio unit. Install antenna. Together with accessories you have to sell the Assembly instructions, which you will be able to find the diagram of the connection parts. Install the batteries and antenna. Adjust the operation of the engine. When everything would be in sync to work, attach the car body to the chassis. It now remains only to decorate the car to your taste.
Advice 2: How to make a remote control cars
The machine on the radio – the dream of every child, and adults like to entertain yourself this way. This toy will bring a lot of joy and pleasure. Few people know that such a device can be done independently. Enough to have the necessary materials and some technical knowledge.
Search the web for a diagram and dimensions for the casing of the machine. As material, you can use the cover from the old system unit. Following the diagram, make the body of the car. Wheels can be made from plastic lids or other round objects.
Pick up additional items for decorating the cars. You can use elements of the old CD drive. Side, frontal and rear Windows are made of thin plexiglass. Next, get creative and give the car a more realistic look. If you believe that you will not be able to make a good case, just buy a regular toy machine size required.
Buy in a specialty store small electric motor to the axle to connect the wheels. You will also need batteries, long wire and unnecessary remote control. Take an old computer mouse and remove both buttons. One of them solder 2 small wires, one of which is output to the electric motor, and the second solder to the positive pole of the battery. It should be noted that the negative terminal is located directly on the motor.
Run back up the managed machine. To do this, solder two wires to the second mouse button by analogy with the first. Then connect the plus and minus on the battery. Connect both the mouse button to the remote control.
Put on the axis of the electric motor driven wheels cars. The efficiency of the device is checked by clicking to the buttons of a computer mouse. One of them is responsible for front and back.
Get a special fee for work with the IR ports if you want wireless control of the machine. In this case, the mouse button will be connected directly to the Board and to close the contact when you press a certain combination on the remote. To customize the commands necessary to perform programming of the device-specific applications.
