Hello friends, today we going to learn how to make a remote control car with spy smartphone CCTV camera. There is a lot of DIY remote control car for different purposes this car is one of them. This car has a smartphone attached to its scissor lift.

 We know that we can use a smartphone as CCTV camera using IP webcam which works with wifi. So here a smartphone use for recording or shooting purpose. There is a scissor lift also with a special mechanism to lift up and down the smartphone. Both the car and the lift are control by remote.

Making 4wd car

  • Draw 26cm long and 15 cm wide diagram of a 4wd car chassis design on a cardboard sheet and cut it. You can increase or decrease the size of the wheel place according to the size of the wheel. Cut two chassis of the same size.
  • Connect wires of dual motor control RC board to motors. Connect two motors in M1 of RC board and another two motors in M2.
  • Connect the battery to the RC board.
  • Place these motors, RC board, and battery on a chassis board. Glue these properly at their place according to the picture.
  • Insert wheels in outer shaft of motors. Here I use bottle's cap but you can use original wheels of dual shaft gear motor. You can buy these wheels from Amazon.
  • Test this car with pressing remote if any problem just fixes it.
  • Glue outer front cardboard piece.
  • Glue another chassis on it. 

Step 2:

Making scissor lift for a smartphone

  • Take a 15cm long and 9cm wide cardboard sheet and glue the motor, battery and RC board as shown in the picture.
  • Open the screws of the connector and insert in the shaft of the motor and insert nut and screw it tightly.
  • Take the bolt and a small piece of a popsicle stick and make a shaft as shown in the picture below.

  • Insert it into the nut and make a support for the nut with some small popsicle sticks.
  • Glue a popsicle stick at the end of the sheet. Glue two pairs of 5cm popsicle pieces which has holes for holding one part of the scissor lift.
  • Drill three holes in six popsicle sticks as shown in the figure below.

  • Take two 5.5cm small popsicle stick and drill two holes in each.
  • Take five toothpicks of size 6cm each and start assembling scissor lift.
  • Assemble the two small sticks at the second layer as shown in the figure above of scissor lift diagram.
  • Cut small pieces of glue stick and insert at each end of toothpicks.  It will hold the scissor tightly.
  • Glue the smartphone at the top part of the scissor lift.
