Tamar radar motor
« on: April 19, 2017, 06:37:15 PM »

Hi Guys,

I'm looking for a radar motor for my ModelSlipway 1:16 Tamar Class Lifeboat.

also the blue rotating light.

Thanks

Dave

Hi Dave


I have used  Components Shop Micro-w worm drive 3.95 and the minature DC Voltage controller 2.50 on my 1/16th Severn. I machined  a blue light cover from perspex with a blue flashing LED from them, I could not find a 
commercial light fitting to scale.

Hi,


Same here on both Tamar and Severn works really well.

I wonder... with the current availbility of micro servos and the ability to convert one to continuous rotation, would a servo slowing device still work with one and allow the "dialing in" of speed for the perfect radar set up?

Could always use a micro stepper ( would need circuit to provide stepper steps)

Dave I bet you could even fit an ATTiny or Pic chip in the same box

Dave,

Have a look here for the rotating light
There is various types available, they are for 1/16 Trucks
