    Future Set Wishes and Speculation

    E-Motor to the rescue! Unfortunately the age of Power Functions has just ended.

    Not just Technic, all of them had it on the back of the box. That's why I kept those backs of boxes; nowadays it goes all to recycling.

    42115 Lamborghini

    This one can be adjusted to be quite stiff, and its return would be very welcome.

    From the quick investigation I made, I think the Osprey is a military-only craft, so TLG will surely not use that name. I bet more on "VTOL rescue plane" or something like that.

    There are already four kinds of Technic wheel arches, why not a fifth?

    42114 - 6x6 Volvo Articulated Hauler

    The geartrains between the functions and their respective motors might be different, though. For example, Grohl's 42099 alternate model also has "only" driving and steering, but he has to use the controlling app upside down because the steering mechanism works in the opposite direction as the official model.

    Neither you nor me, but nowadays I frequently see kids with iPhones (which cost a lot more than 370€).

    Powered Up - A tear down...

    I'm also a bit put off by the price. I'm sure Jetro wasn't comparing your app with the official Control+ and PU from TLG, but rather third-parties like BrickController 2 (which uses a gamepad, which means physical controls) and BuWizz (which was made to control BuWizz bricks but also works with PU), both of which are free.

    42112 Concrete Mixer Truck

    I see it being interesting for GBC, but only if the bottom is open for balls to enter (and being closed by other parts in this model).

    Modern supercars have adjustable ride height, right? That was implemented in an official set only once (8297), and would be something to mechanically distinguish this Lamborghini from the Chiron.

    Power Functions? Porsche?

    That's a fancier version of Case 3 described in Jennifer Clarke's Demag crane page (scroll to the "Suspension" section), with the extra bits dedicated to bring power from the engine to the wheels.

    A gearbox would indeed be of great help to compensate for a weak motor. Low gear when starting to move, then high gear to maintain high speed.

    The Countach, on the other hand, would be a lot easier to faithfully reproduce using Technic panels.

    I'm not seeing how a LEGO loader can be heavier-duty than the 42030, but I wouldn't mind being surprised.
