  1. Didn't even think of it in such small model. It just might. Thanks for advice man!
  2. Interesting. Controlling with levers definitely feels better than on smartphone. But sbricks can use joysticks, so they won't fall for that. Pretty sure buwizz will do something like that in the future. Did some googling and couldn't find if you can get one without buying the sets, which are really cheap. So this brings to the question - whether tech characteristics of the battery itself is good enough? So many questions, so little answers.
  3. 1)It is a common practice to make chassis and other decorative elements in one color and the "dangerous" crane structures and outriggers in the other bright colour, so I feel like you should stick to those 2-3 colours max. 2)From the looks of it, if it is longer that would be really swooping into the eyes, but the real cranes seem to have longer boom, roughly for a half-length of the crane itself. Hope that helps
  4. Actually, thought that there were such precedents here already (In russia these kinds of fake ads and promos are really popular, sadly). I can only feel for you, Sariel. I guess you can wirte a complain to the domain registration company saying that the site makers are violating rights with some proofs.
  5. Thanks mate Awaiting a MOC from you soon as well;)
  6. The easiest way is to use wormgear + 24 gear, but it's limited by height. Not sure if you have the space there.
  7. I can feel the pain in this topic. The reason for these discussions to rise (in my opinion) is commerce and the imperfection of the heavily narrow-focused Lego IP registration. I don't think there is one, and highly doubt that in the near future something like that can really come up. Because if you think logically, you can't really tell that the MOC you've made is absolutely yours to claim, especially to a person (or a group of persons) who works on registering all kind of things in the world. AFOLs can sure, because they see lego content everyday and we have great resources such as EB. But to the bureaucrats your MOC instructions would probably just be branded "Some kids toys" and forgotten. The only way I can see it is IP MOC registration by Lego company itself. But that would be such a hard work just from the scratch. Imagine if it is created and all high-class MOCers give their applications for ALL of their mocs. That would take months or years to complete. Not trying to diminish the value of MOCers around the world, just stating how I see the situation. Think of it - if you are not making money by means of Lego, are you concerned about copycats? May be a little, but as some people wrote here, they are also somewhat honored that their mocs where choosen to reproduce. The lego is mostly fun for 90% of its buyers. Trying to make some money for MOCs is a really hard thing to do, as I see it. Can you really stop thiefs effectively? I didn't find 100% guaranteed answer here, and I guess people just have to let it go. @rm8 As for platforms, you should just use the most popular ones - kickstarter or indiegogo. The more the audience - easier to explain why they need to pay for instructions.
  8. Hello everyone, I'd like to share a MOC from my collection: MAZ 537 Military Tractor 8x8 Done in the scale 1:20. Dimensions: 43cm length x 16cm wide x 15cm height. Weight - 1100g. Functions: - PF XL for all-wheel drive; - PF servo for 2 front axle steering; - The drive chain is done through knob wheels; - Openable doors and roof hatch to access buwizz; - No front axle (2) suspension; - Pendular rear axle (2) suspension limited by the frame; - Imitation of trailer grabbing mechanism. The drive chain is geared down 1:3, no differentials. As a result it drives confidently. The steering is done through 2 big steering racks, one connected at 4 pins from the center of the wheel, another one at 5. Fixed by 1x2 liftarms that slightly imitate ackermanns steering by moving without moving the gear rack. I wasn't sure it will be okay, since the main weight is concentrated in the front, but it was fine. Gave it a hard obstacle course and offroad performance is more than bearable for its clearance. Driving this thing really forces you to seek paths and I don't think it is a minus. More photos here: https://bricksafe.com/pages/gate/gate-lego-technic/maz-537-8x8 Please, let me know what you think
  9. Really nice one. Cool ocean shots! The steering cv joints are pretty weak point here, but if you don't go on insurmountable obstacles it should be fine. The winch should probably be geared down a little bit.
  10. This looks great, if only it was motorized But you have your own reasons there. Great job!
  11. Hello there. A spontaneous MOC: Drift Buggy - 2 L paired for 2 rear WD - Servo for steering - Buwizz Weight: 950g. Dimensions: 32cm long x 23cm wide x 14cm height. Wanted to build a quick medium sized vehicle with 62 mm wheels, but since I had rc third party tires, decided to try them on - and wasn't dissapointed. Gear ratio is 1:1. Some photos: https://bricksafe.com/pages/gate/gate-lego-technic/drift-buggy-2wd Perfect donut timer 2:04 in the video
  12. I realise why the axle position and wheel base gives so much question, but really if you put tractors on a 41999 for example - it will look much the same. Yet it is completely within my first calculations of scaling. I guess everyone just got used to cars being longer. Thank you, the fun is what I pursue in lego Going to make something fast with 62 mm wheels and I really want to make a solid 6x6 trial truck in a big scale.
  13. At this point, it looks great! Having a turret in the center solves a lot of problems for a crane really, but kind of limits the length of arrow, interesting to see what you come up with here. Outriggers should work and do its function, that's only thing that matters imho. Horizontal, vertical, 2 or 1 stage outriggers is really not that important. The tires look awesome
  14. I hope you smiled in a good way;) Realised that in my 2nd or 3rd full chassis rebuilding I've made the chassis sit 1 stud higher, this is where such extreme caster angle is from. The only bad thing I noticed about it, that is when you squeeze it to the full (both left and right shock absorbers) the axle has a moment where it jumps a little bit, on practice haven't loaded it to this point and don't think I actually could. What you mentioned is worth to try. Thanks for that channel tip, it's a good one. About the arches and 42 tractors on real patrol - not necessarily. The guy is likely to use 38 inch and it's clearly enough for flat surfaces with slight potholes. I was aiming for some slower and deeper offroad, closer to this one. Not tractors but they are 42 inch: Don't know if he has problems with wheels scratching the arches, but looks cool. Yes, true. The only thing I believe Patrols have unique is their front face. Building a 4th generation would be much easier I guess because of its squarelike shapes, but we don't go the easy ways.
  15. On the blueprint the car is with 10 stud wheels, which are unimog ones. But I wanted to build vehicle with tractors, which lead to the suspension lift and inevitable wheel arches expansion. In fact when the shock absorbers are maximally squeezed the wheels are just about touching it. So they really couldn't be any other shape. Wheel base is exactly how it is on the blueprint - 29-30 studs in 1 to 10 scale, may be my photos aren't in the right angle, sorry for that. As for the doors and roof yes - completely agree with you, a minus, but the one I can live with since: About the 2 PF L:
