Slider’s Tie Fighter —-My FAT version
This is a replication of Slider’s ‘Tie Fighter’ with a fat coil used instead of the fine wire coil that his design calls for. I was unsuccessful trying to use the fine wire coil. I am unsure why. When I switched to one of my larger 30 ga wire coils the device worked fine. This is a ‘Mendocino ” type motor that runs on light energy only. Here is Slider2732’s original video about this solar motor: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zkdOgFQ8BNY&list=PLA5a2xPRSrB3YzJ33-d5jPbRY9mXm2ouv
