Wind Driven Vehicle (wooden)
|Wind Driven Vehicle
It is fascinating to see how this vehicle drives INTO the wind as if pulled by an invisible hand. Due to the specially designed rotor (simply made from the provided plastic tube) the movement is transferred through a worm and gear to the axle. Low friction bearings assure optimal energy transfer to the wheels.
The basic design encourages pupils to develop the vehicle further, eg. trying to make it run faster on different surfaces or adding studs to the wheels for a better grip.
Skills required: drilling, sawing, filing and glueing.
Rotor size: 280 mm - Wheel base: 160 mm
