The H King begins


The H King wheels from edge to edge came in at 8.25" x 12.5". The Ruckus wheels from edge to edge were 7.5" x 10"

It was only slightly bigger than the Ruckus despite going from 1/16 to 1/12. Being 2 wheel drive, there was no shaft down the middle, freeing up a large space. The wheels were all on ball bearings. It was such a better value than the Ruckus, 2015 feels like the dark ages.

Applying lessons learned, there would only be a cargo container & a handle/camera mount with no material over the wheels. The LEDs & radios would all go on top of the cargo walls. The electronics would go under the battery. The cargo would expand from 244 cubic in to 318 cubic in. The old cargo was 15" x 5" x 3.25". It would increase to 4.25" wide.

The handle/camera mount is key. Designing this feature is the great challenge & going to keep the Ruckus on the road for much longer. The scale is big enough to get the camera a little higher, but this requires reinforcing the side panels.

Since cargo is increasing from 3.25" to 4.25" wide, the camera platform either needs to get wider or the handle needs to bend when the camera is on it.
