As the title suggests…. I had some general RC parts lying around, a ducted fan with motor, speed controller, servos and some radio gear. So I strapped them all together, literarily! The first iteration of what is now Jet Car was created in July 2008; the vehicle platform was an RC toy land rover, not any sort of serious RC car. As you can see in the images below it was an odd fit, the whole structure was very imbalanced, a high CG made it prone to topple and a lack of suspension and tiny wheels also made it topple. I then left it for a few months as I knew I could not go on with such a bad car base, so when I came across an old Mardave racing RC chassis on the internet I bought it. The newer configuration is much better and more stable than the older one; the next task is to do some outdoor runs to test its speed.
