  1. Well perhaps not autonomous, I like to imagine a future where minifigs are still relevant. But other than that, those wheels indeed look sweet for an RC battrax ^^.
  2. Looks like this set has a good part selection for this old Blacktron builder. I think I may get a couple of these.
  3. Boost/value

    I think the value of the Boost is good at the moment. But I do find Boost too limited for my needs. I got myself a second hand EV3 a while back.
  4. Looks nice and compact and some very good performance :)
  5. Ah now I understand. Well the hull is loosely modelled on the T-54 which also had some slack there I believe.
  6. [MOC] Blacktron Goliath Heavy Tank

    Thanks, it was very nice to meet you as well. You are the first Blacktron builder I ever got to meet in real life. And I thought our MOCs made a very nice display. Thanks! :)
  7. Thank you! I will be releasing a video in which i will be talking about the technical details of this build. But I will also give you some answers here. It has a torsion-bar suspension. The magazine is powered by a simple rubber band. The shooting mechanism I used in this tank is one that was designed by Zack Macasaet, more specifically I reverse engineered it based on the videos of his t-34. I am not sure if I will make instructions yet. Thanks my friend, don't i will ever go fully contemporary though. Blacktron is sci fi and need to stay sci fi. That this machine looks contempory is a coincidence :P Thank you. Doing a little better now. It's all just software. As far as I know it's an undocumented function :). So what you need to do is have the control of both motors linked to the horizontal joystick uninverted and also have both motors linked to the vertical joystick but of these one needs to be inverted. However this all depends on the physical setup of your motors. it's possible that you will have to exchange what I said with the horizontal with what I said with the vertical depending on how your motors are placed in your MOC I couldn't understand what your concern is about, could you please clarify? Thanks Miha :) I can recommend both gamepads though the build quality of the Ipega 9077 feels a bit better. https://www.gearbest.com/game-controllers/pp_774490.html bought it for 14 Euro at gearbest https://www.gearbest.com/game-controllers/pp_690140.html bought it for 10 Euro also at gearbest
  8. I've asked István the same question and this is the answer I got. Works perfectly, although you sometimes have make the outputs on the vert joy opposed instead of on the hort joy.
  9. Thank you for all your kind comments, i've glanced over them. But unfortunately I am not able to answer them yet due to a severe cold.
  10. So this is my latest tank. It is a development of my previous tank, the Blacktron Liberator. The Liberator is very fast and fun to play with, but it also has plenty of shortcomings. With this build I tried to eliminate those shortcomings and at the same time be a little more purist: the only non-LEGO item in this build is a Buwizz brick. However this tank is not controlled by the Buwizz app. Instead I've tested @imurvai's BrickController app with this MOC (see video). And that proved to be a very positive experience. Ever since I've been playing around with Sbricks and Buwizz bricks one thing (well more than one thing to be honest) has bothered me, and that is the lack of any physical feedback. When I am playing with a MOC I am usually looking at it, not at the app on my smartphone. And so it can easily happen that my fingers lose touch with the controls without meaning to. This is totally not an issue when using a gamepad :). The MOC is powered by 2 XL motors for drive and 2 M motors for rotation, elevation and shooting. Functions: - Working torsion-bar suspension - Shooting; - Driving; - Turret rotation; - Gun elevation; Very roomy tank for minifigs :) Of course I've also made a video: Hope you will like it!

  12. Very nice MOC. Impressive that you managed make such a good shape with liftarms. Also really liked the video.
  13. I think he is getting worked up because instead of taking him seriously you seem to be making light of the situation. While I think you know that in essence he is correct. Personally I would have cut the staff of EB some slack for the reasons you mentioned, which are obvious for anyone who stops to think about them.
  14. [MOC] F14A Tomcat

    Upon seeing this MOC I am hearing Top Gun tunes. Awesome MOC!
