  1. Do you know whether I can run two of these without interference? That's fine for me, since I like to tinker with rc cars I can rewire a proper lipo into the box. I'm looking for info on how well the bluetooth function works tho
  2. Hey there, I've been gone for about 2 quarters and have now started to spark interest in lego now. I've always wanted to get a buwizz, but the thing is the buwizz costs 185.72 AUD for just one until... and that's with the current sale! So, being turned off with the price of the buwizz, I looked around for an alternative and found this: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32982026707.html?spm=a2g0o.productlist.0.0.69a87b8cgvMIOS&algo_pvid=1bde53d3-ead8-4f06-a2e1-3c04b3ff420c&algo_expid=1bde53d3-ead8-4f06-a2e1-3c04b3ff420c-0&btsid=9a31bbcd-daa1-4119-b36c-aa2701f6b655&ws_ab_test=searchweb0_0,searchweb201602_3,searchweb201603_52 Has anyone had experience/is willing to throw some money for science?

    Connecting 4 XL motors to 1 SBrick

    NiMH or NiCad batteries in the rechargeable AA form are inefficient and are more expensive since you still have to buy the charger, if you buy a lipo charger you can use it with your other rcs since it charges using a jst plug.

    Therefore OP can use 2s LiPo Batteries, which provide a 7.4v output. You might want to use one of these; https://hobbyking.com/en_us/turnigy-battery-4000mah-2s-30c-lipo-pack-xt-60.html?countrycode=AU&gclid=Cj0KCQiAgf3gBRDtARIsABgdL3mpvgMCI1beNugnx-QitkqpvQXEcDM6vxkBna9k8KJcv2Ab1pPQupgaAj5HEALw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds&___store=en_us It uses x60 connectors which are easy to solder pins onto (from a sacrificial connector of couse), has 4000 MaH of energy to use and also is rated at 30c meaning that it can output more power on demand than the usual 20c batteries. Also, don't use NiCad or NiMH batteries, they are inefficient and are not energy dense Good luck!

    [TC10] MTS Dino Suction Excavator

    The whole model is amazing but that cab? That cab looks like it was done by a professional Lego designer, probably outdoing several of the creator expert sets! Well done!
  6. Can we have a video of i flying?

    Awesome! Were you paid in Lego sets? ;)

    Yet another AWD front steering

    Please don't give up on the Sbow I love the idea. Maybe buy third party or order 3D printed custom elements off shapeways.
  9. Rewire the power supply to a hobby grade 3s which is 12.6v which is higher than the buwizz's 11.1v ludicrous mode. Be careful though, I haven't done this and it may burn out your esc (probably not though)

    Yet another AWD front steering

    It's quite cool but I highly doubt that is 70 km/h, more like 30 or 40. I know this since I have a brushless short course truck that does 70 and is heaps faster. I used to use an app like that and it is terribly inaccurate, do the test again with a GPS speed recorder then we can find the true speed of the model. Good work nonetheless I think that the steering system is fine as long as you use some epoxy or super glue. Love the foamboard body design though
  11. If It is like a traditional hobby rc Reciever setup in theory we can have more than four battery boxes due to the 2.4ghz setup. The range of 12 meters is quite strange since i've been able to get 150m with my 1/10 scale car. Can someone who has one rewire the power supply to a deans connector? Then we can use a small 3s battery that would be able to be hotswapped.

    Mindstorms General Discussion

    Yes please! I feel that the mindstorms community is too spread out for something that has quite a steep learning curve :)
  13. I like it big because then they could just crop it out of the video. The idea of making it semi-transparent sounds pretty good, I might experiment with that later.
