Using solar panels for the construction of solar RC toys are a bit different from native installation of solar panels. The scale and the skills required are different. As such, have I mentioned 3 steps we should take Note to install solar panels in the RC toys:
Action No. 1: calculate the power requirements thoroughly before you start
RC toys use solar panels (also known as the thin film solar panels) in Flex due to the lightness and the ability to bend. However, these types of photovoltaic panels will not be able to generate as much energy as their polycrystalline cousins. In this connection is crucial to ensure they have enough land in your RC toys put these films, solar film, before buying it.
Very often we assume a fairly flexible solar panels are achievable after viewing its size. What we can do is look at the data sheet to determine if they produce enough energy for our application.
Action No. 2: the use of material, contributing to the weight of the model is RC
Additional weight requires more energy from photovoltaic thin panels. If the Cars, boats or trains, the glider to be sure that it is not so large, its solar panels could not be started.
There are really many alternative synthetic materials in these days is pretty light. Earlier must use balsa to the plane of the model. If you create a model on an appropriate scale, you should know how to build structures in space, to control his weight to volume ratio. Today there are plastics that can replace a raft, if you do not want to use.
Measure 3: correctly ensure the cables to the surface
Just because there are several threads are photovoltaic panels to drums, does not mean that we must protect the produce properly. This is not only on good organization and maintenance easier. Its reliability and durability. The wires, which are often linked by hanging are things like moving the model RC. This causes the wires to break. They then asks what went so when the PV panels will cease its batteries.
If you can burn the following 3 steps, you will avoid some of the most common amateur errors. To save you many hours of frustration and detecting errors. As a result of many hours more fun games and satisfaction from your solar toys RC.
