It also has a spectrum radio like a takeout, rtr radio. It really didn’t need much now, if you want to see the install keep on watching. If not the bottom left corner is a time that’s where we go. To give this thing a drive, take a look. There are four screws, one, two three and then one on the other side. They are phillips, said flip it over like this and you can unplug the lights right there. Tako, Da, now what’s interesting is this servo. It was actually uh proportional, so that’s a good thing, and it is a three wire servo i’m kind of wondering if i can actually make that work with the regular receiver. That would save me from having to get into here, but let’s get that apart. So with that, out of the way time to peel off the steering servo, the uh well not really sure what that is for, and these are your motor wires that’s. A lot of power. I’Ll, just simply put some ends on that and call it a day with the cover off. You can see the entire receiver esc, all that wonderful stuff and underneath that we have the batteries huh interesting. So those are the batteries, and now we pretty much have a clean slate to work with as soon as i get that unplugged. So the stock battery is 9.6 volt, 700 milliamps. It is a light ion. So with that this thing is going to get 3s absolutely.
I tried a few things with the servo. It appears this is a five wire servo here, and these three must go to a potentiometer and these just power, the motor i can power put power to these and the motor the steering will just simply turn one direction. Flip them and it’ll turn the other direction, so unfortunately, i’ve got to dig into the front to get the front end out. There are three screws right to the top of the chassis. Just kind of go right down into them. Take them out, obviously wires out. Now i can see right in here where the servo is see. If i can get this done, one handed doesn’t look like it’s gon na work. Za mene. There we go so you see how that moved around in there. So hopefully i can just simply put a servo in there somehow possibly glue it in place to get this opened up those screws right there have to come out and it’ll just split right in half the motor is all the way over here, and here is going To be the potentiometer let’s keep digging. There are a lot of screws that hold this thing together, uh this motor. That is huge for a servo. No wonder this thing had plenty of strength, To je, a shame. I’Ve got to take that out. Yep yep yep. Pogledaj ovo, and now right here is going to be that potentiometer. I was telling you guys about now.
All this has to come out and i’ve got to get a servo into here, because i want it to line right up with this stock piece right here. So all this got to come out. I want to point out something that all these big high dollar rc companies need to take lessen up. The gears are greased. How about that. So this is what i’ve came up with for steering. I had to open this up. A little bit and a little bit over to here, had to take one of the ears off partially of the servo i’m going to glue that into place. The servo horn is just simply going to move like this, and then that arm will move and then we’ll have steering with a real servo now accuracy it’s not going to be all that accurate. But then again nothing on this truck is accurate. Tako, and really just not too worried about it in all honesty, so time to get gluing while the steering is gluing in i stuck a 1080 on it did some little motor terminals, so the stock motor and all that so right now it’s got a 3s in It let’s see definitely got more power. Ok, let’s test this out, not the most perfect way to turn, but i think it’s gon na work to get this back on definitely got to do some trimming i’ve already opened that up, but i’ve got to go more. I’Ve got to cut off all of that i’ve already started.
The job got, ta continue cutting. So i got that trimmed out and i still had a clearance issue. I’Ve got to get the servo down below these ribs right here, so i had to pull this back out and trim this down trim some of this away and that away and once i’ve got that done now. This sits flush and this will actually clamp all the way down correctly. So now i get to re glue the servo. Pa, here we are, i think it works good enough. Ok, i think it may have actually turned better with a stock setup in there, but regardless you know, Mislim, it’s time to take this thing outside once i put that awesome, gravedigger body on well let’s see what this got on. 3S moves: a lot better Music. I have my doubts as to whether or not it’s going to survive for long, but that moves good reverse is a little weak, but the 1080 is set up like that. Tako, of course you know, of course you know we’re going to try this in the water. Opet, you know that oh yeah, Ok, we are at the water. We got a good bit of wind it’s, going directly at me, so try to keep it at that if this thing happens to die in the water. Pa, at least i know the wind will bring it back to me right. Glazbeni pljesak, Glazba, definitely a lot better than what it was Music Applause with the wind.
At our backs. We are going to drive all the way across the entire thing. O da! Oh, do you see that thing stop i’m gon na have to use the wind. Let it kind of help me out a little bit that water’s, clear it’s. This thing’s got some depth to it. Glazba, he likes to turn left. Music has got some wind to it. For sure Music, i think i went sideways more than i went forwards. Music get out in the open waters, the giant sharks are going to attack it and bring it down there we go well, wind is taking it right out right out to the middle we’re going to let this get some distance on it here. Oh, look at that thing. Move it’s moving faster from the wind than it is for me, trying to drive Music one thing’s for sure. If it does happen to not make it i’m, not out a lot of money, Music here, Glazba, tako glazba, it is in the middle right now guys it is in there trying to drive, but it just doesn’t work. It just wants to sit sideways with the wind. So it’s kind of like just a big old floater right now, a big black and green wrecking machine floater wind picked up it’s moving we’re going to actually make this all the way to the other embankment. This is going to be awesome, but i can’t really drive it because the land just has it right here, broadside so and without actually full steering control.
It just doesn’t help to drive it Music we’re gon na get there. We are going to get there Music, the wind just had this thing so broadsided i put a sail on the front of it. That would probably you know, keep it forwards and i could drive it come on good moon. You can do it Music, Dobro, it’s out of the water Music, about to say, there’s no way have enough juice to get up the hill. Da, you can spin a tire. Well guys. It’S definitely got more power uh, it definitely floats which it’s floated before, but actually it floats a little bit more. If i could turn this thing, i’ve got to come up with some kind of a way to turn it got to figure something out. I could put like a big rib all the way around the tire, just kind of glue it on there, so it actually drive. Ali onda, when you get in and kind of push a little bit, you think maybe i don’t know, but four wheel drive just really isn’t what it’s meant to be, because that front end just does not lend itself to it. So but that doesn’t mean i may not try something else, but anyway guys.
