Let's make Batmobile

Let's make Batmobile

Now comes the exciting part that you've all been waiting for!
Take the camera, chassis and headboard to begin with.

You'll have to pull both of the components through the hole in the Batmobile's head. 

To make the process easier, pull the headboard first, followed by the camera's ribbon.

Check the photo below to see where you should put the headboard's wire:

When you pull the wire through, it will look like this:

Don't worry about the parts not being tightened yet; we'll get to that later.

Now, take the camera and pull the ribbon through the same hole as before:

Take two bolts and a screwdriver and turn your Batmobile around.

You'll see that there are already spacers on the inside of the headboard. 

Turn your Batmobile on the back and put the screws from the inside through the spacer to tighten the headboard.

After you've tightened the headboard, you can attach the camera to it.

Firstly, you'll have to remove the paper from the sticking pad

Stick the camera between the "eyes" of the Batmobile in the middle of the headboard.

It's time to take the fire board with red LEDs.

The fire board will be placed at the end of the Batmobile so it looks like the fire is coming from it while driving.

Remove the paper from the sticking pad before placing the board in its place to ensure nothing falls off.

Now place the fire board in its place:

It's time to put the main PCB with the Li-Po battery inside the chassis.

You'll need the following components right now:

Before proceeding, check to see if the main PCB is turned on by pressing the pushbutton.

Your PCB may have been turned on during transport, and we want to turn it off until we finish everything.

Once the LEDs are turned off, you may proceed. 

Remove the sticky ribbon from the battery so you can stick the battery to the PCB. 

Stick it to the PCB's back flat side.

Make sure that the battery is not placed over any holes on the PCB and it won't block screws later in the process.

Take the chassis and the PCB now: 

Place the PCB inside the chassis: 

Make sure the PCB is properly positioned - the pushbutton should be closer to the back side of the Batmobile.

Now you must fasten the PCB to the chassis.

For that, you'll need a screwdriver and four bolts. 
The bolts you'll be using now have the following dimensions: 3x4mm. Also, these bolts have distinctive flat head so it will be easier to differentiate them from the others.

Now that you know which side to place your PCB on, you must remove it in order to easily insert the bolts.

You have to put the bolts in four holes on the edges of the PCB.

Place it like this:

Put it in the chassis and beware that bolts go into the designated place.

You must connect the camera's ribbon to the port before tightening it to the PCB.

It's not a mistake to fasten it before, but it is easier this way. 

To begin, pull the little grey part that closes the port a little bit, then insert the end of the ribbon and close it.

Now, take the screwdriver and tighten the four bolts: 

Connect the headboard to the port that says "charging status" as follows:

By now, your Batmobile should look like this:

It's time to plug in the battery.

You have to connect it to the "battery" port: 

Connect the LED fire board to the port: 

If all the wires and ribbons are connected and your Batmobile looks like the one in the photo below, you may proceed: 

It's time to give your Batmobile power. 

Take the four electro motors

Each motor will be going from the inside of the wheels. 

You'll see one larger, and four smaller holes. The motor's pin is inserted into the large one.

Connect the motor wire to the port below it:

Repeat this step for the remaining motors:

It's time to fasten the motors to the chassis. 

Take the screwdriver and 16 smallest bolts. 

As previously stated, there are four smaller holes on the side where the wheels will be installed. These smaller bolts will go in there.

The bolts will go from the outside

Insert the bolts and take the screwdriver. 

Your Batmobile should look like this:

Repeat this step for all four motors:

Connect the speaker now.

First, connect it to the speaker port:

Take two golden spacers and the pushbutton cap.

The golden spacers go into the holes in the middle of the PCB.

You have to tighten it with your fingers. 

Place the button cap on top of the pushbutton now:

Your Batmobile should now look like this:

The only thing left to do is case the Batmobile's bottom so nothing falls out while driving.

You have a long acrylic casing in your kit, and we must first remove the protective layers from it.

Take these components

and remove the first layer: 

Don't forget to peel the other side as well.

The casing should be totally transparent once you finish peeling the layers off. 

There is a bunch of holes in the middle of the casing - that's where you'll have to stick the speaker

Before you do that, there is one small but important step to take - remove the sticker from the speaker.
That's white paper wrapping around the front of the speaker.

Make sure the casing is on the right side and attach the speaker to it.

Just like this: 


Let's start by placing the casing on top of the chassis.

Take the screwdriver and two black bolts

The bolts will go into the golden spacer we put in the previous step. 

Take the screwdriver and tighten it. 

Repeat this step for the second bolt. 

Your Batmobile should look like this: 

It's time to put the wheels

Place the wheels on the motor's pins.

Great job!

Your Batmobile has wheels and is a real car now. 

The final step is to remove the protective sticker from the camera, if you haven't already.


You've reached the end of the build guide. Your Batmobile is now fully assembled and ready to go!
