Propeller driven Lego car.

Lego Technic is perfect for creating quick prototypes of pretty much anything, combine this with RC stuff and you can create really fun stuff. One simple example is the robot i describe in this post:
Sunday afternoon robot

My old Lego is usually stuffed away in a box in the basement, but when we have kids visiting we usually bring it up to the apartment. I suspect I’m the one enjoying it most and this time I built a RC lego car

The battery, ESC and receiver is secured with a rubber band

I use a HXT900 servo to steer

After a few testruns I added a propeller protection bar to minimize the risk of running into something with the propeller.

Runs great, I’ll probably update this post with a video when I’ve recorded one.
