Default Broken R/C Car + Piranah= good times VID + PICS UP!!!

A little background story:
I needed to make a Rube Goldberg machine for physics. Basically something that makes a simple task, in this case flipping a coin, very complicated. So, to flip the coin we are using a staple gun. And to start it, we are shooting a marble at something. We didnt really want to be right next to the machine while all this was happening. So, out came the old paintball gun, and the old broken R/C car. It all just happened from there. I ripped the steering servo out of the R/C car, and pretty much just tapped it all onto the trigger frame. It worked out very well. Here are some pictures.

I thought the Rube Goldberg was posed to be all mechanical

Its a good thing i dont care what it looks like, jsut that it works.

And yes, it is all mechanical. This is just the first step of it. To get it going. You know?

that was awesome... it is a whole new way to play paintball. Put your gun on a stand and sit back and remote control fire

Nice mod

Thanks for the compliments. And, hugs are always welcome. tehe.


I think im gonna get a new motor, because my old one is burnt out, and make it rotatable....then i would just have to figure out how to make it go up and down. Then it would be sweet.

I've always thought it might be fun to make a remote control paintball gun. I was going to do it exactly how you did it, except I was going to mount it some how so I could aim with it too. Nice job though.
