Chapter 7. Inverted Trike RC

by Steven Bolin

There are vast repositories of free 3D printable files, but nothing seems more exciting than a toy you would normally buy in some overpriced store.

The Inverted Trike mimics an expensive RC car, but keeps costs low by utilizing printed parts, commonly available hardware, and simple electronics. This quick and responsive RC car is easy to build and customize. Plus, if there’s a collision, it’s painless to print replacement parts.

The RC Inverted Trike was designed to fit within the Printrbot Simple’s 6″x6″ build volume, so that even those with smaller printers will still be able to print this car.
