Feared Stegosaurus ! (topic about motors)
« on: August 16, 2012, 05:46:04 PM »
I'm reparing a triceratops, and notice that if you put the battery in the wrong side, the motorized dinos are walking back...

See the wild stegosaurus, intimidated by the heavily armored torosaurus !  ^-^



Do you think it might damage the motor ? I wish not, it looks cool that way for a dinorama...

Hahaha. That's awesome
If the sculptor has nothing but science his hands will have no art.

I agree - that is awesome.  Would have never thought in a million years to do that (or that it would even work).

It works only because it uses a battery (direct current), and this type of motor also is a "motor using direct current" ("moteur courant continu" in french) : rotor and stator are not connected (if I'm not mistaking). So the power is simply reversed when you change the way you put the battery inside the toy, and so is the rotation of the motor.  ^-^

I'm not 100% sure if it can damage the motor or not, but thinking about it after all, I think it's ok.

That would be pretty cool to do in a diorama..like have the Stego falling back to lure the Rex into a trap...lol

Nice idea.  :))

BTW maybe I'll make a di(n)orama in France for a convention (in 2013). If yes, I'll take pictures and videos.
