So, yes, that’s quite a title. As mentioned in a previous article, the cheap RC truck is a great source of components for whatever hack or re-purposing you have in mind.
The first thing I tried with this set of components was a very simple hack. I don’t remember all the details, but at some point in my education as a mechanical engineer I learned about conservation of angular momentum. In two dimensions, it’s pretty simple; if something is rotating, angular momentum Read more »
