We Built a Remote Control Go Kart and Had a 50MPH Runaway Land Missile *Wake Up Call*

We've wanted to build a remote control go kart for years. Specifically, our friend Michael had the idea to build a RC go kart after Ike flipped the 670cc Lawn Mower. The goal was to create a remote control system that we could adapt to different projects so we could perform un manned top speed tests. In today's video, we build a remote control go kart with a built Tillotson 212cc engine producing around 15 horsepower. Wanting to test the go kart before the sun went down, we skipped a bunch of safety features and testing, and Ike volunteered to get on it to drive himself around his yard. Instead, the radio controlled go kart went full throttle, accelerating Ike to at least 35MPH in a gas station parking lot and crashing into a curb. We are extremely lucky that no one got hurt and nothing got damaged. From now on, we're adjusting the throttle cable so that max throttle on the remote = barely above idling, more safety features, and testing UN MANNED in a wide open field.
Thanks for Watching!

Foolish move on your part. ...... Ya should have done what I did. ....... use the radio control as it was designed to work! .... it was made to use servo's to control the motors! NONE OF THIS REPROGRAMMING, AND the RC! ...... You want throttle have the servo move the motor to pull the motor switch on..... when you want it to go to idle let go of the stick, and have a return spring drag it back to idle. ..... same for brakes, ..... same for steering. (two motors, and two servo's, one for each direction. they make larger servos for RC as well. But how much pressure does it take to momentarily move a switch?) I set it up for a lawn tractor with centrifugal clutch, and also did it for a 18' john boat. ..... NO PROBLEM. But hook up a kill switch that kills the motor when it starts to lose radio frequency. just rig it like a dead man switch.

If the wiper motor is a universal motor it will always turn in the same direction, you need to change the polarity of the field separate to the commutator to change the direction, the permanent magnet type motors reverse direction with overall polarity.

Use small servo directly off of rc receiver channel to acuate throttle at the engine and use the wipermotor to apply brakes when throttle isnt being applied.

If you want to make a legit RC go kart, you’d have to use real powerful servos. I’d look Into servos from the primal RC raminator monster truck to use for the gas and brake. You could also maybe wire in a starter motor from a car as power instead of a gas engine thus far. Just something to think about

Next time don't ride something on the street to test do it off the ground. Should have used a rasberry pi and setting up a rc car with a quadcopter or heli or plane remote is another problem. And glad he didn't get badly hurt and for remote kill switch killer rc use one for my 1/5th rc gas truck and. Remember remote control recommend no riders

Remote control is about power usage. A couple of AA's isn't going to do it. Power to the signal. If I can do it with a car, you can do it with a kart. You can lose signal If it's being used by another. Good luck.

You do know that wiper motors only go in one direction right? They don’t do back and forward the linkage does but the motor just spins around and around. That was like watching a train wreck. I knew that was going to happen but couldn’t stop looking. And those saying window winder motors, they are tiny little weak things that won’t last 5 minutes. Actuators and/or servo power boys!!!

Holy crap. You guys are more than a few bricks shy of a load. That was hilariously funny, but it would've been funnier if the driver would've flattened the camera guy like a pancake and the driver go head-on into a brick wall maiming you both. Better luck next time. The desire to be youtube famous eventuality will be the death of you both. Good times.

Isaac, fellow NCian here, the motor is a universal motor. The field is wired in series with the armature. They always spin in the same direction. Only way to change that, is to swap the wires to the brushes (but not the field). Depending on construction, it may be easier to swap wires on the field. Just depends... typically the brushes are wired between the two field poles, so brushes are the way to go. Lionel trains used a similar type up until they switched to the permanent magnet can motors.

Another name for a univesal motor, is "series-wound". They also have the neat property they will run on AC as well, as long as the frequency is realtively low. A DC specific one without lamination in the field iron would heat rapidly, but it should develop nearly full torque.
David Pearce
David Pearce 7 ամիս առաջ
Starters are wired the same, BTW! A starter motor, unless it has a set of permanent magnets, will always turn the same no matter the polarity (unless it is a shunt wound motor).

How many times have you tested something and then regretted that you didn't have a kill switch installed? I also fly large RC airplanes, one of the basic safety rules is that you ALWAYS have an ignition kill switch for the engine installed, this is separate from the throttle, so if the engine wants to run away you can always have multiple ways to kill the engine. In addition if it has a seat, you need a kill switch in easy reach of the person who might be in the seat. Repeat after me...REDUNDANCY...REDUNDANCY...REDUNDANCY...REDUNDANCY...REDUNDANCY... PS: One more thing, the radio makers make special radios for RC cars, these have a steering wheel on the transmitter, it makes it a lot easier to control the steering than an aircraft radio like you have.

Look into how 5th scale petrol rc cars are done, then copy it, youf be best using a 5th scale survo direct to the carb/throttle body, and one direct for steering and link that into a reciver that pairs with the remote😅 Useing wiper motors will only ever cause disasters Serioulsy look into large scale petrol/gas rc cars and see how they work then just scale it up to the go cart

How about solenoids for steering. I’ve only seen them all the way on or all the way off, but if they can be adjusted to all points in between, that would would work. Or maybe one solenoid with two opposing ends. That might be more of a custom part though???

And it'll be just as long a life as the what if crowd that never get out and enjoy life bc they're afraid of every little shard of plexiglass in the world. Overreacting to something that I have experienced myself on a biyearly basis and every time it's a shit scary ride, but I am always laughing maniacally when the wheels stop or, in 2 different occasions, I'm upside down.
