RC Widgets

The Front ski
[img src=http://www.wikkidwidgets.com/wp-content/galleries/rc_gallery/thumbs/thumbs_dragboat_frontski_sideview.jpg]590Dragboat II
Front ski from the side. The ski was made so it could articulate over any ripples in the water.
[img src=http://www.wikkidwidgets.com/wp-content/galleries/rc_gallery/thumbs/thumbs_dragboat_frontview.jpg]770Dragboat III
This was a very early conceptual RC boat. This made made way before I had my shop. 100% of it was made with hand tools. Needless to say it took ages to make. (Like a little over a year)
[img src=http://www.wikkidwidgets.com/wp-content/galleries/rc_gallery/thumbs/thumbs_dragboat_rearski_frontview.jpg]310Dragboat IV
A front view of one of the rear skis

[img src=http://www.wikkidwidgets.com/wp-content/galleries/rc_gallery/thumbs/thumbs_dragboat_sideview.jpg]240Dragboat VI
Side view of the Drag boat. It was made entirely of wood. this never saw any action in the water other than float tests. (Yes, it floated!!) 🙂
[img src=http://www.wikkidwidgets.com/wp-content/galleries/rc_gallery/thumbs/thumbs_100_0301.jpg]200Mini super charger
This one operates more or less as a cold air intake. No moving parts.
[img src=http://www.wikkidwidgets.com/wp-content/galleries/rc_gallery/thumbs/thumbs_bachoppa-1.jpg]410Mini Trike I
An experimental RC Trike.
[img src=http://www.wikkidwidgets.com/wp-content/galleries/rc_gallery/thumbs/thumbs_bachoppa-2.jpg]300Mini Trike II
Although it was a fun design, I never got around to figuring it all out.
[img src=http://www.wikkidwidgets.com/wp-content/galleries/rc_gallery/thumbs/thumbs_bachoppa-3.jpg]270Mini Trike III
More or less this Trike was playing around with my CNC machine.
[img src=http://www.wikkidwidgets.com/wp-content/galleries/rc_gallery/thumbs/thumbs_bachoppa-4.jpg]360Mini Trike IV
I had bough some miniature servos for the steering.
[img src=http://www.wikkidwidgets.com/wp-content/galleries/rc_gallery/thumbs/thumbs_bachoppa-5.jpg]270Mini Trike V
I still have this in a box somewhere. If someone drifts by looking at these pictures and thinks they have what it takes to finish it, send me a note! We can make a deal.
[img src=http://www.wikkidwidgets.com/wp-content/galleries/rc_gallery/thumbs/thumbs_bachoppa-6.jpg]210Mini Trike VI
*alas* This is one of many RC concepts that will probably never be finished.
[img src=http://www.wikkidwidgets.com/wp-content/galleries/rc_gallery/thumbs/thumbs_bachoppa-forks-with-rim.jpg]160Mini Trike VII
The front forks I made for it. Although they look very nice, they were WAY too stiff to be really useful.
[img src=http://www.wikkidwidgets.com/wp-content/galleries/rc_gallery/thumbs/thumbs_bachoppa-forks.jpg]160Mini Trike VIII
Another view of the forks.
[img src=http://www.wikkidwidgets.com/wp-content/galleries/rc_gallery/thumbs/thumbs_100_0317.jpg]240Nosferatu
This is a dual rudder system for a large scale RC boat. All the pivot points are ball bearinged. (Is that how you say that?) The two blades are connected internally so if you move one, the other follows at the exact same angle.
[img src=http://www.wikkidwidgets.com/wp-content/galleries/rc_gallery/thumbs/thumbs_100_0313.jpg]240Outdrive Large
Close up of the larger outdrive I made.

[img src=http://www.wikkidwidgets.com/wp-content/galleries/rc_gallery/thumbs/thumbs_100_0279.jpg]150Spotlight III
The degree of movement makes it quite agile.

I had RC servos on it to check out the movement.
