3D Printed Tank Project

Now here's a fun project for you guys with 3D Printers. Thingiverse user JaniKabalin posted up this Micro FPV Tank project whose inspiration came from the Tiny Trak. It uses a 1 or 2s lipo and 2 servos. The design has been refined a couple of times and it looks like it will be fun to drive around with FPV gear on board.

I made one... HXT900's really don't work as they are not designed to carry shear load

Here's a non FPV one I remixed and printed recently. These things are a blast, climbs really well for what it is. I'm using TowerPro brand servos and it runs great so far. I have over 3 hours run time on it. A 380mah 1s lipo gets 30min of runtime and still comes back above 4v.

I really like the design of yours, super clean. I'd like to see a TPU track for it.

Who feels like printing the parts to either of these designs again? Name your price, I'd love to build one for my little boy.

I have the parts from the original design if you want them. Just pay shipping and they're yours. Its exactly like the orange one above except narrower tracks and a slightly wider body.

Picture below is the actual one when it was built.

Very cool! I did something similar but crude with an air hogs hypertrax recently. Mini fpv tanks are a ton of fun.

There's another tank I'd like to print, but the guy that designed it is being tight with the files... and he's only selling it as a kit with the printed parts, screws and tracks... I wouldn't even mind buying the files from him but no luck yet
