And if you mentally ignore the scooter, it really does look like it's floating. You got the right distance from the ground and everything.
My brother sent me a gif of this video. I was proud in a nerdy sort of way that I am in the same group online as "that guy" haha. Pretty amazing work.
You guys probably can't tell, but I'm blushing inside my helmet lolFirst day back at school and my friend runs up and goes "reducted" check this out. He shows me the video, I lose my shit because it's perfect. He then asked if I knew who that was (my friends know I do cosplay and that I know in person at have seen online a lot of cool people)
My response " yeah.... He's also building a full size tank" and their jaws dropped
Love it!!! Awesome little scooter! I have to hand it to you. You have some pretty dam cool one of a kind builds!UPDATE!!
I ran a 405th booth at a local con this past weekend, with arma358 as well. Was able to get suited up and ride the ghost around the parking lot for about 45min in total. Battery does seem to last the full 1 hour as I had hoped, even with it pushing uphill at some parts. Had a friend help shoot a video for me too, here's a link to that:
I see what you mean. Still would be cool to see a full-size one that could be run in parades for spreading the awesome that is the 405th.Only problem with going gas powered is that youre no longer able to have that running at a convention indoors. In order for a vehicle to be inside is to either be electric or to have all the gas lines disconnected and any other source of potential ignition removed. Any on car electronics will need to be able to be plugged in to a wall. Only reason I know this is I know a guy who has to do that with a delorean time machine. He has said he wishes he has one without an engine just to make it easier to go through the fire safety process.
I've been down to the south Jersey shore before, where Wildwood is. The ghost would do really well on boardwalks like that actually lol.I soooooo want to borrow this to ride up and down the boardwalk at the Jersey Shore!!!!!!
I'll admit, the size is quite comical, and definitely not set to scale of the dimensions in the game. Making one to scale would be insanity, and making a bigger one than this would've required a much larger motor and wheels and just about everything. I got the scooter for dirt cheap, so I had to keep it small for that reason and the reason of making it easy to transport. If you have a thread on the one you tried to make I'd love to check it out.so just going to throw this out I tried building a driveable ghost. and someone posted a frame you could use. and now im going to stop typing because the size is making me want to rant.
love how some people are completely unphasedAnother Ghost riding adventure, this time with dual cameras! I've got one more convention this year to take it to then I'll be storing the Ghost for the winter months. Motor has been acting funny so I may have to get a new one, and planning on going one size up. Will drain the battery faster, but I also won't be struggling to get moving half the time. I'll also do more work on adding lights, closing up the open space in front of the rider, and trying to get the front end more stable. All in all, it's been a fun few months of riding it around and getting weird or excited looks. My favorite question I get is "So why are you out riding this?" to which I reply "Cause I built it, and I wanna ride it." lol
how many sheets of foam did this take?Not uploaded, but if you want them I can e-mail them to you. Just toss me a private message with your e-mail and I can send them your way
For one my size (Roughly 6'x5'x2') it took about 20-22 sheets to make. I remember burning through at least 5 packs of 4 sheets.how many sheets of foam did this take?
just considering the cost of one, although I think a go-cart might make a better base if i was to do it
