Yeah I know, it's not a drone at all, sorry :D. But I build drones so far, and I think everyone of us thought about to build an rc car, so I hope you'll like it.

There is one racestar AirB 2514 motor in each wheels, with a planetary gearbox to reduce the very high rpm and convert it to torque. The 6 esc contolled with an arduino, with my own control software, which does force vectoring in turns, breaking the inside wheels, so it's crazy agile. The battery is a 2s 6000mah lipo. The center of gravity is very low because the motors are in the wheels, and the battery is in the bottom of the chassis, because of that, the grip is amazing. With full throttle or break it can easily roll over :)

The parts printed from PETG and mostly glued together, and I used m3 screws in some places. I designed all parts myself, i'm very pleased with the result.

Yes of course! I'm currently working on some improvements ( there is 2 parts what is easily break ) , and on the wiring diagram, I'll notify you in comment if I uploaded it to thingivers :)

OO that's awesome. Wanting to get into building some cars and dev kits, but I was just gonna strap everything to a piece of 2x4 lol. Maybe now I'll have to actually design a decent chassis...

Really Cool! was hard to get sense of the scale until I saw the video. Looks nimble with the dual steering too

AirbladeUAV has done it again and this time they've brought long range to the 5" class! Based on the popular Transformer Mini, the new Transformer 5" Ultralight adopts a lot of the same design philosophies with larger props and more payload capacity. It can fly upwards of 20 minutes on a 4 cell Li-Ion battery pack and in ideal conditions it's got a range of over 4 to 5 miles. In this guide I'll walk..

With the release of the DJI FPV Drone cinematic FPV has become a lot more accessible, but you certainly don't want to crash a $750 drone! The QAV-CINE Freybott is a compact, lightweight cinematic FPV drone that can take a hit and keep going. It's a lot safer to fly indoors and around people. With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
