Default Soze's Orlandoo Hunter OH35A01 Jeep Build

Decided to get an Orlandoo kit so that I can drive it around the desk/room. My first micro scale rig, and now it has me contemplating getting some other micros.

Build Details:
Orlandoo Hunter OH35A01 Jeep Wrangler kit!
1206 SMD LEDs in Red and Yellow off of eBay
Xtra Speed Aluminum Clock Mass Beadlock Wheel

This is the progress so far.

Brand new kit!







Begin Build!













forgot to take picture of putting gearbox together.





















Test fitting and test wiring. Eventually had to relocate the esc and receiver



Test fitting body



I'm now working on painting the body and waiting for my JST charge lead to come in so that I can charge the battery.

I've ordered some pre-wired SMD's for the rear as the kit provided ones just don't fit all that well. Hopefully the pre-wired ones do and are much sturdier. I've also ordered the Xtraspeed aluminum wheels, so those should look real nice.

Other than wiring up the rest of the lights, painting the body and assembling it.... the only issue I have is to figure out how to get rid of the pulsing. I've used brake caliper grease to see if it would help any on the axle gears. Loosening the axle housing a little seemed to help as it seems that having it secured too tight made the pulsing worse. If it takes time to get rid of the pulsing by wearing in the gears.... I wonder how long it would take.

These came in the other day.

1206 SMD LEDs in Red and Yellow off of eBay



These fit so much better, and I don't need to worry about breaking the solder connection.



Yeah, it's a mess...



Yellow lights in front...



Double Reds in back...



Cleaned up wiring, but it's still a mess... At least it works.

Did a little more messing around today. I need to figure out how to make a nice obstacle course for this thing.
