[MOC] Greyhound 4WD RC Buggy /w instructions - Improved rim-hub connection

Recommended Posts

In the end I think the Greyhound comes into full bloom on a bumpy surface where it can maintain high speed, where it tilts in turns and where you can see the suspension in full action. The name Greyhound is actually quite apt.

Exactly, it perfect moves when even one wheel has a firm grip. Great model, too bad that don't have 4 L-motors (so far)!

@technic_addict I was thinking the same thing!

:blush: sorry to disappoint you guys. I have been occupied with the release of the Bugatti and its new parts the past few weeks, as you may have noticed. I still have the goal to finish instructions before summer holidays, which is in 4 weeks.

I don't mind at all. Please show us the end result when you're finished!

First Test ... :wink:

Hello. It is connected to the test both. I am afraid that it may be too heavy overall. I also had to extend the stern with a stud. Now the front must be added and the interior. I will probably omit the powered fake engine.

I have some fear about the weight too, but skipping the fake engine will help. Looking forward to seeing it drive :thumbup:

Another week, another update :laugh:

Now Greyhound can crawl over some serious obstacles thanks to planetary gear reduction inside wheels!

I try to make some photo review with all changes I make, and share it with you, guys, as soon as possible. :sweet:

Hi, I've been heavily inspired with your creation (especially usage of triangles) and wanted to make something more compact, lightweight and extremely fast. So I did. Generally mechanically it's all the same but in smaller version with 2 rc buggy motors (rwd) and single buwizz.

(It still need a bodywork improvement because it was built during two evenings).

Cool! I'm looking forward to seeing how you did that. I might even try it myself.

Nice buggy! I'm glad to have provided some inspiration. I think my next RC model will be small too.

This is such an amazing creation. I’m not good with lxf so worked extra hard and think managd to get 80% of the total design, but not the finesse particularly the internal parts. In any case, I needed to build it twice to get an acceptable outcome. On both occasions, 4 Lego L motors the first time and 2 buggy motors rear only this 2nd time, power cuts off after short runs. 2 buwizz on each model, both same problem, using IOS Buwizz app (digger) for controlling the 2 Buwizz units. Keen to continue wit Buwizz app if possible. Any advice/help you or anyone can offer? Thanks very much!

This is for sure one of the most impressiv MOC's I have seen.

I checks my Part Stock and found 80%, so I have started to build :wink:

But I found it very difficult to build from the LDD File, is there a Instruction available ?

 

regrads, Stefan

I abandoned the IOS BuWizz app, because it disconnects all the time. For me it works fine with Android BuWizz app on my phone, but only on first connection. On a second connection it takes many attempts to connect to both BuWizz's, so I power off the BuWizz's instead to setup a 'first' connection again. If this doesn't help you, you could try asking in the dedicated BuWizz thread.

I was hoping to find time for making photo instructions before the holiday season, but I didn't. During the summer I'm too much occupied with other things, like camping with my family and cycling in the mountains. I sure will be making instructions, but probably not before the 1st of October.

did not have that problem since I use the Brickcontroller app. It has a little lag, which makes it slightly harder to control, but I'm really enjoying it now.

This is fantastic design! Thank you @Didumos69 

 

I’ve search on internet but could not find this app, would you share a bit more information about it?

Performance is pretty cool! It work well on single Sbrick (11,8 V) - front L's on single output with polarity switch, back L's and servo each on separate output. After an hour of very intensive playing voltage drops to 10 V and performance was just ok. As far as I saw SilenWin's video my version is a bit faster and have more power. All in all build is totally awesome! Thanks again for sharing your hard work!

This looks awesome! 

 

@Ctan Would you please share your power supply configuration with SBrick? I’m tired of Lego’s limitations and want to try new and more efficient (and more cheap) solutions :)

Excellent, I really feel that this is as good as it gets in Lego technic of the current age. 

Unfortunately nowhere near as good as proper RC models but we cannot get any further until lego releases any newer motors; or we make can illegal rc cars >:)

Yes. I'm slowly waking up from my Summer break and this will be the first thing I will start working on.

Btw, Stud.io 2.0 makes very nice photorealistic renders :wink:.
