Ivan Miranda’s giant tank is incredible! I wanted to make my own RC tank, just on a much smaller scale. This remote control tank is designed to be easy to follow and shoot silly string for maximum fun.
The chassis is a kit from Banggood, with the project also using a Matek BEC, Arduino Uno with L293D motor shield, a Flysky FS-i6 RC set and MG91 servos.
In this video, I will show you how to:
Wire the BEC / 4S lipo battery
Pair/bind and test the RC
Build the tank chassis
Wire and test the motor shield
Read the RC receiver signal with Arduino and write code to control the tank treads.
Part 2 will cover the design and 3D printing of the body and mechanisms, as well as lots of silly string fun.
