Solar powered CUL8R

Conversion pics at the end.

The idea was to see just what kind of grunt the ‘Smallest Car in the World’ system has.
I’m quite used to 6mm coreless motors with R/C homemade aircraft, but the solar panel itself is the intriguing part to this. 0.5V at 150ma with a flashlight is nothing short of stunning.
After a lot of Dremmel work and 3 axles later it runs great (axles were all slightly bent til moving to a sewing needle).
As you can see, even when just flashlight powered, the car moves off well 🙂
