Helmet v2.0 – Building The Remotely Controlled Rangefinder

Here Goes Nothing…

I’ve now obtained all of the parts to make the rangefinder go up and down, using a remote control. I will be following the instructions at thedentedhelmet.com.

The theory is to use the parts from a small remote controlled car and controller set:

This is the remote controller portion. I don’t need this part right now, so it will be set aside…

The car portion. This has the remote board I need.

Shell of the car removed…

Plastic board cover removed. The remote board can now be lifted out to reveal the wiring.

Need to run to Radio Shack and pick up a few things before I can actually start the real work. Stay tuned…
