    FT's Technic corner - MAN TGS 6x4 with bucket gripper

    I think so. But manly, the mechanical levers are optimized. But it can also depend on each cylinder. Not all are sliding equally. But there are also disadvantages: You need more tubing and the joint where the bucket is fixed on the arm oscillates I think so. But manly, the mechanical levers are optimized. But it can also depend on each cylinder. Not all are sliding equally. But there are also disadvantages: You need more tubing and the joint where the bucket is fixed on the arm oscillates worse due to the resistance of the pneumatic hoses. Furthermore, the timing of the both cylinders can be off if the resistance is not the same in both cylinders since the air always goes the way with the lowest resistance.

    For my taste the bucket of 42043 was not powerful enough. therefore, i use in this moc two cylinders. furtheremore, it was easier to build like this.

    Many thanks to berlin Actually, the cran ist not so heavy and also a bucket full of roundbricks is light. It also helps, that the main ram is a LA. I developed a mechanical solution for this problem: It is option 3 in the video:

    This is the case. it is full of motors. Here an other video, where you can see a bit of the mechanics:

    FT's Technic corner - MAN TGS 6x4 with bucket gripper

    Hi everyone I would like to present you my MAN TGS 6x4 with bucket gripper. The truck is built in 1:16.5 scale and has 10 remote controlled functions for which 11 PF motors and servo motors are needed. The model is controlled by 3 SBricks over the BrickController 2 app. In the app I programed the pneumatic pump so that it switches on as soon I use one of the pneumatic functions. This is a great feature of the BC2 app that several Ports of the Sbrick can be on one stick on the gamepad. Like that the pump only works if pressure is need and you don't have to press a second button for the pump. Furthermore, the model has suspension and 6x4 drive.

    MOC JCB Telehanlder

    Hi everyone There was the wish to get instructions of my JCB Telehandler. After many hours I finished the instruction last weekend. The model is built in the 1:16.5 scale (and fits to trucks like 42043 and oder MOCs of this scale). You can find the instruction here: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-34753/FT-creations/telehandler/#comments There, you can also find further information about the model. Cheers Simon

    Actually, about the jcb telehandler doesn't exist a lot of picuturs. The main built took place 1.5 years ago an at this point I didn't take many pictures. Here a few of different cabinets and other small adaptation. I will also take pictures about the final product now

    There is only one steering mode because there wasn't space for a second servo motor or any mechanics I used these tires because I needed the model in the 1:16.5 scale to fit my other models. With the 81mm baloon tires the steering is more difficult and they doesn't look scale Picture will follow soon

    MOC JCB Telehanlder

    Hi everyone After one year of delay I was able to produce a video about my JCB Telehandler at Bricking Bavaria 2019. I'm happy I was invited to BB19 as guest driver. I met many very friendly lego builders and many interesting MOCs there. The JCB Telehandler does have 5 remote controlled functions controlled via 2 SBricks. Check it out in my video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rP3gDmZFMLA Cheers FT

    [APP] BrickController2

    Hi Lothar, Welcome to the forum. I had a Sony xperia X compact and a Sony PS4 controller. Phone and controller worked perfectly together but it was difficult with the Sbrick app. I always had first to connect the Sbrick App with the Sbrick and connect the controller later. Otherwise, it was no possible to connect the Sbrick with the app. Same problem was also with the brick controller app. Somehow the PS4 controller hidered the connection between the sbrick and the sbrick or brick controller app. Then I changed to this controller: https://www.trust.com/en/product/22258-gxt-590-bosi-wireless-gamepad This controller is specially made for phones with android. Since I use this controller, I hadn't have any problems. Neither with the Sbrick app nor with the Brick controller app. But I cannot say whether the controller will work with your phone, but I think it should, since it is made for the android mobile system. Cheers Simon
