ECAP + Hollywood cast off + machine shop = Profit? IT LIVES! (5-3-14 update)

It is time to go public.... This is the start of one of my most epic projects to date. What is it? A remotely piloted paintball tank. That's right a drone. Previously thought about in the deepest part of ECAP's black department, it is now out in the light.... I give you the start of Project Phaedra AKA "Harold". Expect full coverage on my Youtube channel to come.

Nothing really to see yet construction wise but I bought something as a base.... I was going to make my own frame and motor system but the motors I wanted alone was going to cost me $400 a pair, and well.... buying them with a complete Rascal with a box frame that was beefed up for its roll in a movie for $400 seemed so much smarter... Wait what? Movie star?? KInda..... B movie.

Starting at 1:30.... the non-modded cart is the A cart I own the B cart, the one with the brush guard and wheelie wheels used in the racing scene. Used in a movie.... and now used to shoot people FTW!

Harold - Official Movie Trailer - YouTube




Making this thing steer is going to kill me...... But right now the intentions is two control systems with two separate battery systems and camera systems. There will be a "pilot" and a "gunner"

I got this thing stripped down the frame, motor and steering components finally.

Now it looks like a naked chassis and not a cripple cart. Good news in stripping it.... I found out why it didn't work!

Guy blew the speed controller putting 48 volts into it, it was only rated for 24. He over volted the thing to be able to get the torque to do wheelies. So any one good at figuring out large scale RC car steering?

The local hobby town usa here in nc has a rc tech guru who loves projects perhaps scope out a local store and browse their interest and possibly find someone who would do it for stricly cost of parts

Stripped off all the no longer needed bits... and to be honest it already looks kinda bad ***.

You can see just how beefier the frame and suspension was made to accommodate the wheelies it used to do on film.



I am working on getting this functional as an remote control chassis this week/week end
