Seems odd that it smoked when the load should be rather light. Anything I made would smoke I think. : ) Getting closer to having a workbench in pc room for whatever. Sounds fun to make a RC boat and putting camera onboard although it would worry me with the gopro I have now. Gopro7 Black at almost $400. : ( If I went this route someday I think I would pick up one or two of the lower priced action cameras. Video looks plenty good to me.

I failed to find a clip from the movie "Fatal Instinct" where defence attorney Ned Ravine shows how scary the world looks when you've got a stocking mask on .

Electric motors have only a tiny gap between stator and rotor (for the magnetic circuit) so if it gets hot enough, it can expand enough to close that gap and stall.

It Wes like riding the titanic. Cool view of inside. 👍👍

Friction Powered Toy Truck RC Conversion By special request BoatCam in my latest 2 days ago   08:07

Friction Powered Toy Truck RC Conversion. Probably inspired by watching too many RoadKill videos on YouTube we stick big wheels on a toy truck. The RC components all come from my junk-pile of scavenged parts and have been used several times before.
