R6: Head Electronics

Posted by PicasaIt took ages to get the raising radar to all line up correctly but now works very well and looks great when it triggers and rises out of the head.I have added a few LED's and some bent bits of wire to add effect.I decided to use a coiled lead to add power to the LED mainly for effect because I could of powered the LED directly from the metal of the aerial shaft.The coil of wire gives a very technical/mechanical look.
The only issue I have is now going to be the height the radar system adds when the head is removed. I will have to work on this because with this extra added height the R6 will not fit in my car.
