Default lol, i built a micro tank out of an aero ace!

i know this might not be the right place to put this but this is the only aero ace place.i had the body of one of those little micro tanks and i attached the aa motor wires to the twin tank motors and it worked , i was laughing so hard, it scared the crap out of me when i was making it because when ever someone uses a cellphone it makes it turn on,i was charging it and it just started rolling and was dragging the transmitter behind it. it can run about 5mins of a 10 minute charge. not bad but not good.ill post pics later

Default RE: lol, i built a micro tank out of an aero ace!

nice conversion i did a few non-airplane conversions as well. a boat, hovercraft, and an Ekranoplan. i guess the ekranoplan is sort of a plane, it does fly, but only on its own cushion of air, which is only a few inches off the ground. the boat in the picture is using the BladeRunners RX, but i removed it and later used the AAs RX. it worked suprisingly well.

those are some big big motors for the little AA lipo. after you run it, is the battery warm at all? if so, it might be drawing too much power, which could eventually kill the battery.

there never seems to be an end to the uses the AA guts can bring!

What did you make the skirt for the hovercraft out of? It looks like tissue paper. How well does it run? I love hovercrafts, so naturally I'm curious as I have AA guts with nothing to do to them.

monstermaker, you'll be happy to hear that spinmaster/airhogs might be coming out with an AA powered Hydrofoam. should be pretty cool, there's a picture of it somewhere in the deapths of the AA thread.

flyingace, the skirt is just a plastic bag from a grocery store. i didnt make it big enough, so it didnt blow up very much, but it scooted around quite quickly. since it was so small though, the thing would mostly do just donuts. i probably couldve hooked an actuator up to the AAs RX to control a rudder, but i never got that far. i built a larger one using the AAs electronics as well, this one performed much better, it wasnt nearly as squirly when turning, its pretty fast too. if i sealed everything up enough, it just might float!

both hovercrafts took all of about 15 minutes to make, the big one was made from a meat tray, the little one was made out of a foam dinner plate. cheap fun

the tank has died, i was charging it and the circut board and tha battery started getting hot and the circut bored started smokin and burnt up{stinky} and the mini lipo started to swell up like a balloon{like the bigger lipos!} so i put it in a bowl of water and put a nife through it, it stopped it from exploding.i guess i must have over charged it or damaged the lipo,i evaded a near fatal mishap! lucky me.[X(]

lipos dont go bad themselves. its what people do that make them go boom. dont dent drop or over charge one. and you have to be careful when they are in any vehicle. go talk to the people in the airboats section.they are help ful . thats the only other place im at when im not on this forum.id just be careful about the balsa one. but dont be scare of lipos, their our freinds

normally they blow up during charge, but they can blow up well in the sky if the voltage gets to low the motor will shut off and the the battery will blow up or catch on fire.
