Powering PF from AC; any advice?
fred67 posted a topic in LEGO Technic, Mindstorms, Model Team and Scale ModelingSo I know that, in this forum, most of you are concerned with mobile models that require a battery to use, but I also figured this would be the best forum to ask these questions as the people here seem more likely to know about stuff like this. In order to not have to build around a battery box, I've been using 9v batteries and one of these: And it occurred to me that, for my table top PF builds (in this case a track switcher for trains, or an elevator in a building), I could have an AC power adapter wired to a PF connector. So I'd buy a PF extension, cut it in half, and connect it to these: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B01GPQZ4EE/ (female adapter cables) and https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B012VQ5A7S/ (9v DC Adapter, 1000mA with 5 male plugs) I could instead get a 500mA adapter, but I figure AAA are 1000mA, and have been using the AAA battery box).
[MOC] AC Cobra 427 V2
shimon posted a topic in LEGO Technic, Mindstorms, Model Team and Scale ModelingHello everyone. If some of you remember i have presented the first version of the AC cobra 427 to share the concept and gather feedback. It is now modified and on LEGO Ideas. The car scale is 1:14, measuring 33 studs long and 13 studs wide (15 on wheelbase). The features are as follows: - has working steering via an adjustable steering wheel. - mini working v8 through a differential. - independant front and rear suspension - openable hood via a lever on the dashboard - openable doors and trunk - very sturdy and solid build This can be the first Idea set that has lots of Technic features. If you like my idea, please support. https://ideas.lego.com/projects/cf0541fd-a421-45e1-ba80-cfa9b97c07e8
