[Vintage Backyard RC] He built a beautiful small RC track in his backyard and wanted an electric trolley system to take shots along the main straight with his GoPro.Using only trash can parts, he created a simple Pedal operated RC cable car. (Video, embedded below.)
[Vintage Backyard RC] First, a high-speed car running on a model train track was tested. However, it is bumpy at high speeds, the track is expensive, and it requires 50 V to run on an open track. The new cable cam makes the driving more stable, and the old RC gear he provided is almost cost-free. The cable cam is powered by the brush motor of the remote control aircraft and runs on some weed cutting lines with plastic wheels. The control is provided by the old 27 MHz RC system, and the internal parts of the controller are transplanted to the old wah guitar pedal.
The speed of the non-gear motor drive cable is much faster than required, so [Vintage Backyard RC] You need to carefully control your feet to run at a reasonable speed. This is easier said than done, and at the same time the remote control car is controlled by hand, so he plans to replace the remote control system with the updated 2.4 GHz system software endpoint limit. We will be exposed to ESP32 or any other wireless-enabled microcontrollers we already know, but it is worth remembering that most people are not familiar with these tools.
This is definitely the simplest wired cam we introduced this year, but it just shows how simple they are to build. You can always upgrade from 3D printed parts to stylish folding frames, and add machine vision and remote video streaming.
