its my KNIGHT RIDER.........
« on: January 10, 2012, 02:55:46 PM »

Friends..Colleagues....when i was a boy, one of the most inspired TV show..yes was the Super man..but, was not one..and one of the amazing inspiration was..yes..the episode from..KNIGHT RIDER..and as a modeler, i completed many KNIGHT RIDERS..as on wheels..but this is the first time i realize a KNIGHT RIDER on a hull..and whats a collection of models without a KNIGHT RIDER..? so i turned to my work bench..and she is an amazing one..

as usual, i started with thermocol..and the prop was made of washers and nuts..after test run i added two led weights about center line, to avoid rollover at high speeds..and this gave me good stability even at high throttle...

you can see the aerofoil like section made on a washer with pu putty..this gave me a high thrust even at low revs..

she is powered by a high power ECM, and i fixed it on a heat sink, scraped from a SMPS...

showing the simple rudder control..actualy the micro servo was not enough to pull the surface at high speeds..so i reworked some on motor, and rectified it...
