    At least we won't have to worry jerky flimsy wobbly outriggers this time I guess, because they are one-stage only. I still can't get the outriggers in my 42009 to work properly.
  2. Has anyone tried the wheels from 10258 London Bus as duallies on the rear axles of this set?

    Nah, the reasonable price for a 4000 pcs set is 160 - 170 EUR, which you can get on amazon.de 1 year after 42082 has been released and right before the next flagship is released, just as how I got 2 BWEs for that price. For some reason amazon.de can afford crazy discounts. I do feel like cheating TLG off a piece of their profit, but I just can't help it.

    The price is 229.99 EUR

    Since outriggers and rotation are motorized there must be two switches in the undercarriage. I don't think these two functions should be changed simultaneously, so I think one switch will change the direction, and one switch will change the function.

    Yeah I also think motor and BB should be in the superstructure to serve as counterweights.
  7. If it is PF upgradable wouldn't it be weird to have one function of the arm motorized and the other one not?

    Well I don't think the transmission would be an issue if the motor is in the undercarriage. Just need to route one axle from the undercarriage to the superstructure, since only one function can be selected at a time in the superstructure. Meanwhile, rotating the superstructure and extending outriggers can be done right in the undercarriage. The problem would be the wire. In 42009 and 42042 the motors are in the superstructure and the wires are barely long enough to connect to the battery boxes. If the motor is in the undercarriage it's the wiring that gets needlessly complex.

    What would this solution look like?
  10. 42082 Rough Terrain Crane

    Since the motorized rotation is put in the undercarriage, the large gear ring must be attached to the superstructure.
  11. You mean it is likely or not likely to be PR upgradable?

    I've just checked the 2018 thread again, and someone who had interactions with the set said there is motorized rotation! Knob for rotation is in the undercarriage.
  13. I don't think 42081 would be PF upgradable. 42081 has two main functions: raising arm and tilting bucket, and there are 2 separate knobs visible already in the model. Or at least, 42081 doesn't have a gearbox, while usual PF-upgradable models has only one input knob and a gearbox to split the transmission into 2 functions.

    I'm leaning toward L motors. XL motors so far are used mostly for propulsion (Dino, 8275, 42030, 42070, 42055). For other functions, pulling two conveyor belts simultaneously with some loads in 42055 also makes the use of XL motor justified. As for 8258, I think L motor could do just fine. I think the XL was used because the L wasn't released back then. Now for the 42082, if I remember correctly, the gearbox at the back of the superstructure allows only 1 function at a time. It's a multidirectional gearbox like that in 42042, but with three functions and one switch moving freely on an axle among those three. The three functions can't be other than raising boom, extending boom, and lowering winch. In the carriage body there's the outriggers. Nothing too heavy, so an L motor would suffice. On another note, one thing that has been bothering me is whether rotation is motorized :/ There are only three functions at the back, and it is unknown if there is one or two switches in the carriage body...

    Better compare it with 42009 than with 42070
