3D model description

I had too many parts lying around and wanted to put them to good use. All the tiny traks that I had seen failed to impress me visually, so I made this one to be both an impressive model as well as a functional RC FPV tank. The model in the picture does not have the exhausts or rear guns on it yet. Those parts may also need tweaking, so let me know of any suggestions. Thanks!

Parts:
1X micro aio fpv camera with 10mm lens (I used eachine ef-01, but most should work as long as the antenna is in the center about 5mm behind the camera pcb)
2X MG90 metal gear servos (360 degree, I modded normal ones to 360)
1X 3.7v to 5v DC-DC voltage regulator
1X RC reciever
1X 5mm LED and appropriate resistor for spotlight
2X 3mm LED and appropriate resistor for front lights
2X 3mm LED and appropriate resistor for rear lights
3X M3 5mm countersunk screws (for servo case)
2X M3 10-15mm screws (I cut mine to fit the wheels)
1X Female power plug (I used Micro JST PH 1.25 2 PIN female connectors, but others may fit)
1X Battery (battery bay is 25mmWX10mmHX40mmL)
1X Male plug to fit to battery
lengths of wire to wire up electronics
Solder and heatshrink
Appropriate glue for your printing plastic
Appropriate glue for LEDs and camera
flexible filament to print treads

Servo Case Assembly
When assembling the servo case, check that the arrows on the interior are aligned. The wires will then go in front of the battery area and you can route them to your rx.


3D printing settings

Print Spotlightset.stl without supports. All other models should be printed with supports.

Models with rafts in the stl file have been included as they helped my bed adhesion when using ABS.

Slug Tread files are to be printed in flexible filament.
