Hornby APT Active Tilt Project

Recommended Posts



I have a scheme to create an active tilt system for my Hornby APT. My plan is to use a microprocessor board (Arduino) linked to an accelerometer/gyroscope  and feed the input to a micro servo motor. The main problem apart from everything is that I don't want to extensively modify my almost pristine APT and was wondering if anyone could point me in the direction of a cosmetically rough (rougher the better) APT driving car, even just the underframe to use as a test bed. I have been watching Ebay for ages but nothing has come up recently.


Thanks for looking.
