Default 10T SWIFFER VACUM FLOOR CLEANER.

Yes, a walmart swiffer vacume cleaner with a mod motor and 4200 a battery. Well almost. It will suck anything in the floor fast. She was going to trow it away because it was making too much noise and it didnt pick anything up anymore. It had a mabuchi rs540 motor and 1500 a battery pack 6 cells. Not no morse...it rocks.

That is sick. I want to put a receiver and some 5th scale servos on a castor lawn mower and make it RC. Once the garage sale season starts, I could get a FUBARed one for 20 bucks.

I'll post some pics later on after work. Might end up changing it up a bit. Needs to last more than 30m before it drains the battery out. Possible a 27t. Dont know I will have to play with it to see what works better than stock.

Could you make the pictures smaller? They fill up my screen at a resolution of 15X10px.

a few years back, a buddy of mine did a similar thing with his infant swing, I remember seeing it and I almost thought it was unsafe for the child. His kid seems ok today, so go figure
