  1. LEGO Technic Turbo Polyp / Kraken

    Iam sure that that will be fixed, bro :), there are several ways to do it

    The big ball is nothing more than dressing up the lifthead (the part that connects the lift with the arms). iam still building that. No problem at all

    The speed of the motors is adjustable. But maybe a will add a a few gears to make the speed just right so that i can activate it by a press of a button. The sudden stop i will look at it, but i think that wont be a big problem The middle structure is 21 studs wide.( the batterybox i added is just temporalily.). It "looks" to big but it will be look good with the crosses and seats added on the final model. The model will about 140 studs big Here is how the middle "ton" will look like for now (iam adjusting it a little now because of the new lift slider) Believe me, it wasnt easy to create the movement without weight problems and rotation issues:). i rebuild it maybe 12 times All credits to the curved gearbeams. that what made it possible

    UPDATE I attached the arms (temporalily connection) to test the lifting of the Polyp. This is how it looks now (the batterybox on the side will be replaced by a old style 9 volt battery box, but i dont have the extensioncable to connect it to the receiver :( So i did a stability test and a speed test and...ofcourse the lifting when in full motion. The liftrod i replaced by a more stable structure. (the crosses with the seats are not ready, iam busy building those). This is test stage 2 of the machine: enjoy!

    I made a video of how the rotating system operate. Pure a first stage test of rotation, lift and strength. Enjoy!

    This week i will test the model. Rotating, lifting, speed, strength, all will be tested in a video patience:)

    I think you misunderstood my comment. The seats (read: the crosses) DO rotate like that faller ride. The seats independently rotate due of the central force of the rotation.just like the real thing

    Arm frames ready. Only dress up to cover the holes and lighting

    mm, strange., i copy the bbcode with size 640 x 360 px. but i shall resize them They are resized. sorry. my mistake!

    Control panel Everything on the model will be remote controlled. Movement, lifting, lighting A few years ago i build an controlpanel. (It will be modified a little) to be continued..

    Arm endparts and electric linear dragcontact A little update The crosses and seats will be illuminated. So therefore a rotation electric contact is needed. For fix this "problem" i used a motorcilinderpart and a small DC connector that fits like a glove Parts i used to make the endparts of each arm: Building it: Wiring: The curved gear racks and perfect for a put the wire through As you can see below the two racks together will create a smal hole where i can put the wiring through to be continued..

    A little modification: The driver that power the lighting must be mounted inside the lower cilinder. Due a drag contact it get his powersource from 12volts. However, the room i have inside the cilinder is to small. so i had to modify 2 arm supporters. In between the two, the driver fits perfectly. The fence around the center unit covers the driver. Here some photos

    He there. The idea of the turntable is indeed not new. I saw a guy on Youtube who came up with the round bearings. All credit for him(Tanwooken YU). I tested the weight it can handle. I putted 10 kilograms on the turntable. No problem About the questions: The liftsystem us due to 2 horizontal 11 studs gear rack. It pushes the head upwards.(explained in my opening of this topic) The seats are not powerwd by a motor.. on the real thing the seats are moving independently cause of the centeal force of the rotation of the machine. The crosses are powered by connection to the second ring on the lower cilinder and for speed adjustments also by a motor About how many motors: The model has 2 xl motors to drive the lower cilinder 1 xl motor for rotation of the second cilinder. 1 xl motor for the lifting. 1 medium motor for rotation of the crosses The lightning will be EL wire.(chasing). And led strips around the model (on backplate)

    A little update. i began to make the inner fence around the center unit here is what it will look like (photo taken before adding the arm connections)
