  1. Uh, six? All listed within the first 30 seconds of the video?
  2. I haven't filmed any of these competitions last year, but now I'm back and the trucks are better than ever :)
  3. As you probably know, torque effect happens e.g. when a helicopter spins its rotor, and is "spun back" by the rotor in turn, proportionally to the ratio of helicopter/rotor weight. I find this effect quite fascinating and I was wondering if it can be used to steer a true monowheel left and right effectively. It took some adjustments, but the answer is: yes, it can.
  4. It's extremely unlikely to get counterfeit LEGO pieces from Bricklink. A seller who sells counterfeit stuff would surely have lots of negative feedback, and every seller's feedback is publicly available for you to check.
  5. 4 XL motors and a custom-built u-joint would be a good option. The downside is that 2 more XLs means 1 additional battery with 1 additional IR receiver.
  6. KING OF THE ROAD

    Nice stickers. The truck looks like the front axle was sinking down under its weight, though, it needs more clearance above the front wheels, and the headlights look wrong. I believe they're just too close together, they should be moved to the sides so that the turn signals are located not on front but sides of the cab:
  7. I'd rather not make the review without some kind of a final word from the manufacturer, and I don't seem to be getting one.
  8. I've added link to photos & description to the first post, and also here: http://sariel.pl/2018/03/kenworth-t600/
  9. The only damage is the snapped u-joint, as shown in the video. Transmissions can be problematic, sure, but I'm using a strong and efficient one. You are welcome to try it, free building instructions are at my website: http://sariel.pl/downloads/
  10. Not really. I never expected a model this big to be fast, and I'm a strong believer that 2 PF XL motors can move almost anything if used properly and efficiently. Admittedly, they would be probably more efficient without transmission and with some custom-built heavy-duty u-joints. Sorry, I honestly don't remember, it's been well over 2 years since I've installed the transmission, and it's rather difficult to turn this model upside down to take a look. I will probably find out only when taking it apart.
  11. The surely can be smooth, but you won't be able to open up the hood then. Look at the size of the openable section of the hood, and consider that it has to stay together while being attached to chassis only by the hinges. It's big, it's heavy and it can't disintegrate while being handled - so I found it necessary to build it this way. Inclined plates simply wouldn't be strong enough in my experience.
  12. I have some experience with the Flybrix drone. In short: the load capacity is essentially non-existent, and the drone is impossible to really control. What happens isn't so much flying as semi-controlled crashing into things. I was trying to discuss the problem with the manufacturer, but never got a solution. Essentially, the drone is extremely sensitive to everything and slightest movement of your finger sends it crashing into a wall. I've been testing it for weeks and I've had lots of experience with larger drones, and I don't think I ever got more than 4-5 seconds of air time in one go.
  13. Thanks. It's my first time using camera movements like these, I have just purchased the DJI Osmo Mobile gimbal with tracking, and it's the only way I'm able to make these.
