anyone help design radio controlled cordless drill?
« on: March 01, 2010, 04:24:06 PM »

I want to operate a cordless drill by radio controller. It is for use in a stage play. I have no idea how to do it, or if it is even possible. Help?

option 1
radio>servo- presses the button

option 2
radio> motor control

option 3
radio> relay> button

option 3 would be the cheapest. get a old radio car and hook the motor leads to a relay and the relay to the drill button

or even better get a really cheap rc car that has boolean (on/off) controls. you can use the controller that would normally connect the motors and battery to connect the two leads of the trigger.

that way you don't even have to buy a good rc or a relay

ya but the reason for the relay is because most cheap RC cars run off of 6V, and cordless drills run at 12V

Hi,

A cheap wireless doorbell driving a relay (with a transistor) will probably beat the price of an R/C-car (at least in DK).

A rather fast and fairly heavy robot with quite large wheels needs what? A lot of power?
