Kyosho Blizzard Complete Plow Redesign
This is my longest project to date, took me over a year to design.
Started in Sketchup, had massive limitations so switched to Fusion mid-design.
This mod will flip your Blizzard over front to back.
The motors and gearbox will now be at the back.
You can use the "Stock Blade Adapter" to fit your stock blade on it for a quicker conversion if you like.
This blade has :
- Tilt front to back
- Swivel left to right
- Independant side wings
I used "MG90" sized servos (DS-929MG to be precise) for the blade Wings and Tilt which i cut the mounting "ears" off.
The lifting and swivel servos are standard 1/10 size servos.
I would advise using 20kg+ for the Swivel and Lift for best performance.
If you use the "Stock blade adapter" you will only require 2 standard servos for Lift and Swivel and will have to use the "Fixed Tilt Link" to prevent free-tilting of the blade.
UPDATE Blade_Swivel_V2 adds some clearance around the pivot point. If you didn't have problems with the V1 don't bother with V2 !
UPDATE 2 I have uploaded some scale cylinders to replace the ugly rectangles. I made them 5mm longer to get more down throw, so they will lift the blade less also. Write in the comments if you want an original length scale cylinder, i'll make one if requested.
UPDATE 3 I have uploaded the "Fixed_Tilt_Mount" so you can use the remodel blade without the tilt forward/backwards. Just put that part into the servo holder and use the "Fixed_Tilt_Link" to complete.
