I'd like to present the Tower Crane

- PF: 3x L-Motor, 2x IR, LiPo

- Trolley movement

- Hoisting

- Turning.

The goal of this creation was to make a playable machine with optimal movements speed. The body is made of sections, it may be higher and longer.

Excellent build.  I am a huge fan of cranes.  Always loved 'em.  I like this one a lot.

Simple observation though.... if the purpose of the build was to create optimal movements, doesn't the top section move too fast when rotating?  Don't think TC's move that fast..... and in this model I think it contributes to the signficant side-to-side sway seen at the approximate 30 sec. and one minute mark.................

Thanks. I didn't really try to make speeds strongly exact; it this case hoisting and trolley movement must work slower as well. By optimal I meant not too slow and not too fast. It's more for playability.
