I thought i would share one of my NXT creations which was shown last weekend at Brickvention 2010 (Australia's largest LEGO show)
It uses NXT as a well as Power functions.
I used a Mindsensors 8 servo motor breakout card as well as 6 hitechnic sensors.
I hooked the NXT up via bluetooth using mindsqualls .net and wrote a simple touchscreen program to control all the functions.
Front landing gear door (hitechnic servo)
Front landing gear (NXT motor)
Two rear landing gear dorrs (hitechnic servo)
Both landing gears powered by one NXT motor.
Front Cargo Door (hitechnic servo)
Airbrakes on wing (Hitechnic servo)
Landing flaps (NXT motor)
tail fin an rear wing (hitechnic servo)
Engines (power functions with IR remote)
Landing lights (power functions lights)
The NXT and Power functions use the lithium batteries and they lasted all day full usage no problems, but the mindsensors churn thru AA batteries like no tomorrow so i will have to find a new battery or go with mains power (anyone got any tips for a 6v source for this?)
Anyways more pickures can be found on my Flickr: http://www.flickr.co...s/32580212@N03/
