Remote Controlled Trike
With instructions, built for ACC, "All But Four"
About this creation


For the next Allround Car Competition, the theme is "All But Four", meaning all contestants have to make an RC-vehicule with any number of wheels exept 4. Since building light is a good technique to make a fast car, I chose the minimum number of wheels with which is was possible to make an RC-car: 3.

To give it good driving capabilities, I wanted to include the following:
* Make it as light as possible
* Differential for smooth cornering
* Good steering-lock for good manouvrability
* Return-to-centre steering for comfortable controll



And to give it just a bit extra than just an RC-vehicule, I included a working V4-engine. It also has front & rear-lights.



For the return-to-centre steering, this part was used. It has an internal spring, which returns an axle to neutral position. An M-motor was used. Different gear-setup were tested to find the one with the best steering-lock/Return-to-neutral performance. Te result is a very manouvrable trike.



For propulsion, I chose an XL-motor. It's speed was increased by a factor 2 in a drivetrain comparable to my E.R.T.W.D.. It is quite fast, while still having some power to drive over some obstacles.

Again, I made full building instructions so all you Trike-lovers can build your own. The instructions can be downloaded on my website www.jurgenstechniccorner.com. I made some nice renders from the ML-Cad model:
