What you need:
- Food can
- tin sheers
- soldering gun
Step 01: Pile everything
Cut the flat strip off the can. BE CAREFULL SHEET METAL IS EVIL AND
CUTS YOU REALLY EASY.
Cut the rim off too.. Were going for that nice flat bit..
Final cuts to get our strip of metal...
Straighten it out... again, carefull, its sharp.
Use the hammer and nail to punch a hole thru the middle big
enough for the motor shaft,
Punching it is better cause the flare gives better surface area to
attach to the motor shaft.
You can see here the way the metal is pushed out on the back side.
Draw out the propellor shape, this shoudl taper a little slower...
Cut out propellor.
Curl it, its hard to see here, but its cupped, ever so
The shaft of most motors are given a solder resistant coating,
so file that off..
Push prop onto motor...
Solder it on, I used a 150W soldering gun...
GIVA DA POWA!
(apply power) be carefull that your not in the way if your soldering
job is bad and it flies off
I tried to get it to balance a ball, but it has to have a cowling for
cowlings are beyond the scope of this goofoff session.
wouldn't stay put...
it just refused.
