    General Part Discussion

    @I_Igor Regardless of the gear type selection, you will need 3 gears to have the servo output aligned with the steering shaft. This will create slack, no matter the option. In my experience the only way to avoid this is to have direct steering.
  2. Great little project! The slow motion shots in the video are awesome, they really show the behaviour of the bike when faced with physics. How long does the battery last?

    Dumper Tractor 2in1 Racing Kart

    Nice model. By the way you can select different materials for colours, such as rubber or transparent. Right now the tires are set to plastic, which is why they look so shiny.

    [MOC] scynox's workshop

    This is a fantastic looking build. Are all the grill parts available in yellow? Might make it more coherent to match the camshaft parts.

    42113 Reconstruction Guide

    Who else is having fun? Maybe we should coordinate our efforts. By the way Step 297 has an error in it, the 4L tan axle is pushed in too deep through the tan bevel gear. It's corrected in Step 301.

    First 10 steps in case anyone wants to use them. Edit: @Ngoc Nguyen Page 174 of the instructions is folded, can you please post it?

    MOC Fairchild A10 (WIP) pics added

    This is looking great. The A10 is one of my favourite planes, you are doing it great justice. Just don't let the German Peace Society know.

    Apologies for the late reply, but this Speed Champions set has a Ford F150 with rubber band suspension. It's incredibly well done. I get the feeling that it won't work in large models. https://www.lego.com/en-ca/product/ford-f-150-raptor-ford-model-a-hot-rod-75875

    2-Speed Planetary Automatic Gearbox

    The small size and simplicity of this gearbox are great. I'm wondering if the friction wheel couldn't somehow be replaced by a flyweight mechanism like ones found on governors. I can't imagine it being as small as your current solution.

    Powering a motor with remote AND switch?

    This is the correct solution. Just remember to have both switches in the middle (off) position before selecting a direction on one of them. They may bypass IR receivers, but physical switches are either on or off. Sariel's example (9 minute mark in the video you linked) relies on one of the switches being off to have power going only to 3 IR receivers.

    42115 - Lamborghini Sian FKP 37

    From what I remember, my LDCad file with exhaust hoses on the Hammerhead was 1.6 Mb, while your version in MLCad was a few kilobytes. Ease of ease isn't always efficient.
  14. What a beautiful model. I had to count the 2L beams on width of a track to finally understand the scale. By the way, nice trick with the linear actuator for the arm.

    @Blakbird Welcome back. Any thoughts about using digital animations for sets that you don't have? You experimented with it a bit here:
