build - Wrigleys XR10 Build Empty Wrigleys XR10 Build

Post by Wrigleys Fri 24 Aug 2012 - 0:26

... and so the inevitable happens. Journey to the dark side? Cool

Day 1

Delivered in a week from Tower..
build - Wrigleys XR10 Build IMG_3506

build - Wrigleys XR10 Build IMG_3509

I had this from my AX10 so gonna use it in the mean time. Proline Hammer 2.2
build - Wrigleys XR10 Build IMG_3510
build - Wrigleys XR10 Build IMG_3511

The build starts..

build - Wrigleys XR10 Build IMG_3512

Had trouble along the way.. As you can see from the pictures, the button head was hitting the motor and restricting the steering movement. Quick SOS to Boolean. After filing and trimming the ball end to make it shorter, the button head finally had enough clearance to slide beneath the motor. Thanks Boo!

build - Wrigleys XR10 Build DSCF3736

build - Wrigleys XR10 Build DSCF3735

All in all, managed these in 5 hours. My first kit and very noob at this.. The pictures self are explanatory guys..

build - Wrigleys XR10 Build DSCF3743

build - Wrigleys XR10 Build DSCF3744

build - Wrigleys XR10 Build DSCF3741

I would be using cheap electronics mainly 2 x 320A Esc from China cos I would be running a dual esc setup, 2 x Axial 55t motors, Towerpro MG996R servo and a not so cheap Futaba 4PL which has dual esc mixing to achieve the dig effect. That's all for today.. to be continued...

Day 2

And so the build continued. Poured another litre of midnight oil to complete this roller.

Started off with building the shocks. Quite straightforward for a newbie like me and got it done. Take note not to pour too much shock oil as the kiasu me who poured a little too much made the oil leak..

build - Wrigleys XR10 Build IMG_9008

build - Wrigleys XR10 Build IMG_9009

Fixed it to the front and rear axle together with the lower and upper links.

build - Wrigleys XR10 Build IMG_9010

build - Wrigleys XR10 Build IMG_9011

Soon the xr10 took shape.. Laughing

build - Wrigleys XR10 Build IMG_9012

Kind of a no name servo which gives out about 10kg torque. Got it from ebay.. Lets see how it holds up.

build - Wrigleys XR10 Build IMG_9014

build - Wrigleys XR10 Build IMG_9015

Finally mounted the tires and locked into place.. It came with wheel weights for the front. Nice of Axial to include those.. Pictures not taken though..

build - Wrigleys XR10 Build IMG_9017

build - Wrigleys XR10 Build IMG_9018

build - Wrigleys XR10 Build IMG_9019

It was 3am and time to sleep...

More updates as I mount the esc, rx and whatever electronics that are still on the way.. bounce
Till then....

I am still waiting for the esc which has been a month now so I decided to cut and paint the body.

Used these 2 paints from Jethobby. Costed me about $5.50 each.
build - Wrigleys XR10 Build IMG_2052
build - Wrigleys XR10 Build IMG_2043

Sticked the window panels with the provided tape and also ran a tamiya tape across the lower part of the body.
I probably applied 5-6 layers of blue (as what I'm told, darker colour first)
Removed the painting tape for orange paint to be applied.
build - Wrigleys XR10 Build IMG_3763
build - Wrigleys XR10 Build IMG_3765

Applied 3-4 layers of orange for the final touch. The painting was quite a rush job and if you look closely, it is far from perfect. pale
build - Wrigleys XR10 Build IMG_3772
build - Wrigleys XR10 Build IMG_3789
build - Wrigleys XR10 Build IMG_3791
build - Wrigleys XR10 Build IMG_3793

Rig Completed. Using 2 320A China ESC (forward, reverse and brake) and a 4PL to control the 2 esc.

build - Wrigleys XR10 Build IMG_3978_zpsc3f9a4b1

Wires are in a mess but I will get it sorted soon. Laughing

Pics taken during the last crawling session on 23 September thanks to Boolean. So far so good. Razz
build - Wrigleys XR10 Build Imgp8211

build - Wrigleys XR10 Build Imgp8227

Stuffs that need to be upgraded eg. better tires (HB rovers like the 2nd pic loaned from coldman, metal servo horn and shocks. Stock shocks leaked but still usable.)
