Very nice! I bought a bunch of those style kits back in the day. Did them all gloss black and gold my 1995-2000 vision of what my hot rod would be

Another small update. Got the wires extended for the power and signal on the ducted fan ESC and ties on some of the loose stuff

Also figured out maybe where the steering servo is going.

They're still a little banged up from moving from Missouri to Indiana to Indiana to Indiana to Missouri to Missouri, so 6 times in 15 years roughly. I just haven't taken the time to reassemble them.

More updates
I cut a hole in the floor


Then drilled a hole in the side, and shoe-gooed a servo in place


Exposed bell-crank steering.
Now to get a piece of 3mm music wire to make a 14" drag link so I can get rid of the joint in the middle.

My favorite way to do this. Practically free.
R26 O-ring and a four way servo horn and shoe goo.
Drilled out and slipped on a #8 size bolt, with one of the servo rubber mount bushings holding it in place.
Gives it the old model T style 4 spoke look.

Started out drilling two holes

Then drilled a bunch more

Then stuck the shifter through with a bent roller chain link welded in place

Looks like a shifter

The bale on the transmission will go into the front loop of the shift rod, and then I'll bend the loop closed. I was originally going to try for servo shift, but the gearing is going to be so low it's going to live in high.

I'm still alive!
After a week of a stomach flu and getting caught up with work I hit the shop running.


Body is finally mounted!
Another driveline shot


My shifter is in and tweaked
Low gear


High gear


I finished getting everything wired up and got it hooked up to the radio








The steering steers! Kinda. It flexes a lot at the black plastic joint. I need some 3mm music wire to make my own rod with.

The ducted fan spins! The wrong direction but I have to take the whole thing apart to get to the motor wires to reverse the rotation. Reversing the transmitter just changes the direction of the throw, not the direction of the airplane esc.

The drill motor turns and the rig drives! About two inches before the chain walks off the sprockets.

And the rear tires really drag. I need some wider hexes I think.

But it looks great!
