from FPV Prototank with Turret #3DThursday #3DPrinting
by Pedro Ruiz
This thing uses the tracks, cogs, and associated motor mount frame from the ProtoTank by timmiclark. What this adds to timmiclark’s design is an entirely new enclosed hull and turret with pan/tilt motion. It also features a removable battery cover, held onto the rear of the hull with magnets. Please see timmiclark’s original post for the ProtoTank to obtain those files and information regarding motors and how to print/assemble the tracks.

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
