Default Pistenbully 600 1:8 ( Its Painted! Almost.. )

Hey!

I have been working on this project for quite a while now and been posting on a a local forum, but then i figured i post here and show you folks!

the 1:1 machine.



i have been building for almost a year and a half now with some breaks because of seasonwork. enough talking, now let the pics speak.

Making some traxs




Start of the chassi






Made some wheels


Chassi + wheels


Chassi + Wheels + tracks


Chassi + Wheels + Tracks + Kyosho Blizzard


i just had to make a comparison between the 1:8 and the Kyosho blizzard.. seem a bit smaller..


Right now im working on the front blade and the motor that will raise and lower it.. looks promising. i have some more pictures and some videos, but thats for later!

Cheers
Joakim

Looking Good! I'm getting ready to start a very similar project myself. Not to out-do you or anything but I was thinking 1:6 scale. I've been drawing it up in Autodesk Inventor in my spare time (not a lot lately) and I'd like to start building after I get back from vacation in July.
Just a couple questions, What size materials are you using for your tracks? They look great! And, any ideas on the drive sprocket? Do you plan on custom machining it?

Nice to see others with similar projects! I use 10x10x2mm, not exatly scale but looks good in my opinion! I have done some drivespockets, handmade. Did about 3 versions before i found the best solution! I can post some pics when i get back from work!

Yea, it Will be kinda big! It weighs around 11kg right now!

Thanks for the info! I'd love to see some pics of the sprockets. I'm thinking of going with a 2 speed transmission on mine, well 2 of them. I'd like it to be able to pull a small sled behind it, just need to figure out the electronics.

@LOSIASSOCIATED - Thank you! i will try!

@Tyme2par4


right now its mounted on the machine, don't have any pic of it "loose" and its a pain to remove.. can take a better w/o tracks later.

are you going for a dual motor setup or? what about the electronics?

Started on the blademount!


This is how it stands right now!





and some youtube videos, first ever drivetest.





Now -> to the garage.

I definitely plan on going dual motor. As for what motors, not really sure yet. I haven't really looked into electronics yet. I have an airsoft tank that I may sacrifice for parts to start. I've been out of the R/C seen for a few years now so I'm a bit out of the loop with a lot of the parts. I'll have to start doing some research once I start building.

I am using 2x lynxmotion motors and Sabertooth esc on my PB600.
It allows you to turn the PB or Tanks in a radius.

This is amazing! Truly inspirational. I thought I was good with my dual motor Kyosho Blizzard DX! I am also running the dimension engineering Sabertooth 2x12, and I cannot express how much I love it. It has made the dual motor setup amazingly smooth... I use a pistol type controller to drive it.

Looks like I may be getting myself a Sabertooth 2x12 from the reviews here!
Hajen, what are you using for a radio? How many channels do you plan on having?
Im thinking 1 for each track (2), blade up/down, side to side, maybe tilt, then eventually the groomer up and down and on and off. Probably some lights too. That makes 8 channels... I don't have any experience with that many channels.

Thanks guys!

No I'm not on that forum, i have tried to join but it won't accept my simple hotmail.com adress.. wierd. I'll have to PM the site admin.

Yea, Sabertooth is great. I have two of them in my Kyosho and also now in my 1:8. So easy to hook up and never had a problem with it. The sabertooth ESC allows you to have all driving on one stick, forward/reverse(ch1?) and right/left(ch2?)

As of now i don't really know how many channels I'll use, but probably a bunch. Right now i dont have the right radio, just a simple 4ch. But after my vacation I'll order a Robbe FC16 Truck&Boat and i think a multiprop12+2 modul! same as you i don't have any experience with alot of channels, nor electronics, buy it will hopefully sort out!

For today i have just done some detail welding and a new design on the bladelifter!
