This post will provide you with the basic information on how a remote controlled vehicle can be constructed. Read on to know more about this.
The components required to construct the vehicle is listed below:
- 1.2Ghz 1000mW Receiver+Transmitter
- USPS Priority Mail boxes
- Hitec Optima 6 2.4Ghz Receiver
- Arrowind 18A Brushless Speed Controller
- 2200mAh 20C LiPo Battery Pack
- Brushless motor
- Custom motor-reversing relay board
- Foam wheels
- 7-Inch Handheld LCD TV
The first thing to do here is to test the wireless transmitter. All the required components are mounted on the USPS mail box.
Once the test is done, the box is strapped onto a nitro RC truck. The vibrations caused prevents the truck to be driven via the wireless video feed. The best thing to do in this case is to add wheels and propulsion to the box.
All the components have to be taped or glued to the box and the box should be fitted firmly on wheels. The use of a brushless motor and propeller would be a good idea as it can provide the necessary propulsion that is required. This also prevents the use of drive-train for the wheels.
Now the vehicle is complete and ready to be operated via a remote. The camera used here for the live feed is provided with a pan/tilt mechanism. This helps to obtain a 360 degree view while moving.
