For several years now I've been designing and building small fun
electric go karts, trikes, scooters and other mini vehicles. It
started mainly for fun for the kids but also just out of interest - and some have been built for use around the
garden - all have proved to be very effective and have been great fun
to work on.
You can see the DIY designs below - they include
go karts, kids' trikes and scooters, a powered wagon for the
yard, a 3/4 scale veteran style "Voiturette" and 1300W
tractor. A projects have been DIY full motion cockpits for flight simulation and DIY
linear actuator design, and there are a couple of early experimental
vehicle designs too - a
tandem buggy and a sporty single seater. Now added - a
DIY Wi-Fi Robot.
There are loads of pages on the site
with lots of designs and design information, links to component and
materials suppliers, a
component search engine and great value
plans for sale. So have fun looking
around, I hope you find the site interesting.
Over the last two or three years I've
been adding lots of new material to the sister
Flight Simulator motion platform
and related projects web site - you can find it
