My Custom Mist Unit!
« on: February 12, 2019, 04:37:17 AM »

Hi guys
ok after purchasing a mist unit & testing it out, i decided to have a go at making my own as the one i bought although was decent just didnt produce enough mist effect for my large tug build.
I decided to use clear perspex so water level is clearly visable & is about twice the size of the one i bought & also has a larger mist device & larger fan to produce more mist, I finished making it today & tested it & all went well (touch wood!) next step is to add a circuit board that a fellow member has made for me which will allow me to remotely switch the unit on/off from my remote & will produce more/less mist depending on throttle.
This runs off a 12v battery using a 24v step up for the mist unit & i also used a stepdown for the fan (fan is a 12v one) so i can fine tune the speed of the fan which in effect sets the plume of mist that comes out on max throttle.
Couple of short vids (The mrs was watching TV so excuse the sound from it, ha!!):

Cheers!







As you can see in following pic the mister i bought is almost twice the size of the one that came with the unit i bought!
