Proline Ford 250 Body on SCX10

Proline Ford 250 Body on SCX10

Post by RCGolf on Sun 3 Feb 2013 - 19:48

Hi,

I wanted a proper pick up truck as an alternative body for my SCX10 Honcho. Took a while of searching before I found one that I liked and has the closest match to the original SCX10 wheelbase. I ended up with Proline's Ford F-250 body for the Traxxas Revo 2.5. (There are 2 F-250s available from Proline; the other one is for the Revo 3.3 which I believe has a slightly different dimensions)







Used some packaging materials to make the front and rear light pods:









The finished paint job would only complete the body partially. What was put into the body by the electronic guru later makes it actually come alive flower

Thanks Boys, you guys are definitely the king in my books when it comes to electronics cheers





Thanks for looking Very Happy

Thanks for showing off your project and making the nice video of the light controller's function! I will add it as "video response" to my own light controller video.

I can attest to the inspiring work RCGolf did on the light buckets and wiring. There are a *lot* of wires in this truck and it came out neat and manageable.

Just a bit of background info on this project: at first the idea was to recycle the cheap Turnigy light controller, which is unfortunately more "disco light" than realistic car lighting. But it turned out that only the connectors have any value in this kit (well, the LEDs are fine too and come nicely pre-wired) so we rebuilt the electronics form scratch on a prototyping board.

There is only a single servo extension lead running between the chassis and the body, so it is easy to separate them. This required the receiver modification as I've shown a few days ago. Power is taken from the receiver/BEC.

Since it is all custom hardware and software it was no issue to add special lights like a "3rd brake light" and the indicators in the wing mirrors.

If anyone else in Singapore has a special truck to light up, you know where to find me geek My rates are reasonable Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy
BTW: My second "customer" already delivered his vehicle yesterday for installation Smile
