We was Baptizing our Daughter and I wanted to do something different to introduce her to family and friends at the reception. So I was thinking for a while and then I came up with this.

My wife and I went to toys R us and looked at the power wheels. it was between the hello kitty and a girl Jeep one. well we decided to go with the hello Kitty car. The only down side on the car was that it only had one motor to run the car and it was 6 volts not 12v.

I had everything else to convert the car.

Item used:

Pololu: Concentric LACT4P-12V-20 Linear Actuator with FeedBack 4" Stroke

Pololu : Jrk 21v3 USB Motor Controller with Feedback {Controller for Actuator}

Pololu: Addressable RGB 60-LED Strip, 5V, 1m

Amazon: Sabertooth Dual 25A Motor Driver { Over kill to use on one motor }

Ebay: White 18 LED Emergency Vehicle Strobe Flash Lights

Ebay: 100 Feet Polypro Strap Webbing 3/8", 1/2", 5/8", 3/4", 1", (1 1/4"), 1 1/2", 2"

Ebay: 10-100 pcs Side Release Plastic Buckles 5/8", 3/4", 1", (1 1/4"), 1 1/2", 2" #P00

Getting ready for Halloween and I'm doing two projects. But this Blog is for one of my Halloween projects, I'm building a Motion Sensor Gatling Gun. What it will do is when someone walks by, it will activate and aim at the person and spin up like if its going to fire, and it will follow the person as he/she walk by. "The gun will not fire anything" but I am thinking about adding red led strobe lights in each barrel so when the barrels move to the top it will flash red like if its firing

I already started the project, I 3d printed the muzzle and the barrel mounts. My printer bed wasn't large enough to print the whole muzzle so I printed it in half's and glue them together. Then used bondo glazing putty to smooth everything and level everything out. Then I wet sand everything and put on more putty and more wet sanding. And then put on grey primer to see any defect in the part that needs more putty.

The barrels are 1" fire work tubes @ 2 feet long.

Hi guys,

I'm in the middle of a Halloween Project, I took my son old Power Wheel car and made it in to a over size RC car. I took the whole car apart to the gears, I greased and painted everything. As you can see in the before and after pictures. I still have to add some decals, plus a doll that will be driving and will be wearing a chucky mask and the head will be moving up, down, left and right. Oh yea I will be drive the car in FPV.

The Question is I have the EzUHF transmitter and the EzUHF Rx diversity receiver.

On the diversity receiver can I add an extensions to the antennas? like a 1-2 feet extension and still have good signal?

So I can hide the whole receiver and just have the two antenna stick out some where on the car.
