So we have badwolf’s gt2b mod, and after some recent testing I thought I’d add this as a new option to the DIY list.
The goal is a sort of cross between the nunchuk and the Enertion 2.4ghz remote… but using a gt2b
So here’s the plan: -no gun shape -push throttle (not a trigger) -18650 battery -ergonomic -little modding needed (i.e. not moving the USB port or cutting the PCB) -reliable!!! -gt2b sensitivity (not enertion 2.4ghz level of sensitivity) -cheap (not 100$… the price of a gt2b plus 3d printing)
The only downsides I can see so far are: -the version I’m making is basically right handed only (could just flip everything for left handed, but either way, there couldn’t be an ambidextrous version) -no perpetual steez The main change on this design is using an 18650 cell, and using the steering setup from the gt2b (because it is more compact) rather than the throttle. The steering can connect in the throttle port, and uses the same base motor, so it works totally fine (I’ve tested it).
here are some pics! I hope to design and start 3d printing some prototypes this week. Anyone else with input is strongly encouraged!!
Let me know what you guys think… and feel free to check out a video of the remote working on my facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/caden.matson?fref=nf
