  1. Hello Guys, it has been a while since i last posted something in the forum but i have this issue with this old powerfunctions e motor that has this strange behavior: after you turn it on, it runs normaly for a few seconds and then it is getting slower and slower until it almost stops with zero torque. Do you guys know what causes that or how to fix this? i know how to solder stuff so i could do it myself. XG BC
  2. Hi, 10 years ago I made this with some left-overs: I Improve some skills and Lego also made a lot of new parts, so I remade from scratch this locomotive: 7wide, 50studs long, 2L PF motors, and the fan on top spins when it runs. This is a render, I don't have enough parts yet to build in real life. Hope you like it.
  3. Hello! This is my latest model: Volvo EC750E in 1:22 scale. Starting point is the 8043 "ultimate" with 6 motors for 6 functions. The undercarriage is 90% the same, I only had to make it 4 studs longer, and added some details. It also has tracks tensioners. 2 of the motors are hidden in the panel-built arm. In this way, I removed the universals joints in the pivot of the main boom, so it works more fluently, and the arm can be thinner (3 studs at the beginning, then 5 studs). The LAs are a bit shorter for this excavator, but I'm quite satisfied by the range of movement. The battery box is on the back and acts as a counterweight. The stickers are home-made. Pneumatic tubes are fake of course... I will make a video in the next days (and better photos). Happy new year to everybody!

    [MOC] NMBS/SNCB Class 77

    Hi, I don't know much about this one, A person request me to design a 8 wide version of a Belgic Class 77, so this was the result:
  5. in this topic i wanns hear about the shortage of Lego motor and your ideas the subject discussion will be based on the Powerfunctions series motor & Powered Up Series motor and the contents are here 1. Size Compared to Old Motor, Powerfunctions & Powered Motors are bigger with planetary gear(to get more torqe However, instead of getting enough torque, sometimes the size of motor is too big and need your idea or opinion about it(like problem with big size or nice experience) 2. Shape(or design) there was an idea(M motor was oval type, and L&XL Motor were difficult to hold conrrecly because of the round shape) the Old lego, on the other hand, close to rectangle write any idea on it please :) 3. Building system(Coupling method) its really nice for me but sometimes the rc car's wheel was disassembled while running because of coherence weakness and hope the coherence of Pin & hole was more stronger. write any idea or your experience on it too please :) 4. specifications Imao the most frustrating part is specification especially torque i saw that many ppl use motor in parallel to get enough torque or just satisfied with just moving even slowly I'd like to hear your opinions. Thank you.

    [MOC] T-55a

    There have been a couple of projects this year that have been a long time in the making. I have been happy to clean out The Queue over the past couple of months. This is a MOC of the most widely produced tank of all time. The T-54/T-55 series of tanks has its roots connecting back to the T-34 of WWII. This MOC represents the T-55a version, produced from about 1979 onwards. Basically, it means I got to build the AA gun on the top. Much more is at A video may be found .Features: Working left and right tracks, PF L, 1:1 Turret rotation, infinite rotation Gun elevation Suspension for all ten wheels Removable paneling And the right. The rear. Sorry about the single dark grey tile. The top of the turret. The snot work was fun. The internals. You can see the battery box, the turret mechanism, and the drive motors. The suspension is running down each side.
  8. Hello good people, I am finding interest again in Lego Technic (40 year old nostalgic dude from Holland). I bought myself the forementioned set which I will open not earlier till the holidays. I will need to get myself familiair again with the new technic bricks and systematics. I am also thinking of motorising the Claas Tractor and making it RC. Will be a nice challenge. Now, I read about the S brick receiver and thinking about buying this one for this project and a few motor units separate, incl. cables of course. What would you guys recommend in buying for this project in terms of motors? I would think the S brick, two servo motor's for steering and one XL motor for driving itself? And can this all be powered by the standard batteryholder that was included in the original set, through the S-Brick? Also, would this set in itself be suited for redoing or will be there be a lot of other parts be involved too? Just looking for some insights of people who have done this before. I do understand that this is a quite difficult task, but a man has to set dots on the horizon hehe Any input is appreciated. Thanks!
  9. It seems like all of my MOCs are being finished during the month of March. I present a Large Scale version of the Kalmar 180-9 forklift. I started this MOC last July, and after completing a number of other distractions, it's done. I'm please with the result. All pictures may be found on Flickr. The MOC features: Dual Stage Lift, PF L Forklift Tilt, PF M Steering, PF Servo Drive, PF XL Opening Doors Removable bodywork The lift is able to move three AA PF battery boxes (~600grams) to the height of 39 studs. Much more at Photo Photo 2 Lift Chassis Open Enjoy, and happy building.
  10. Hello, I'm Noah this is my first post in this forum. In this post I want to show you my recent build a remote controlled Pistenbully 600 inspired vehicle. This vehicle is used to prepare ski pistes. With the front blade you can move snow and the rear tiller crushes the hard pieces and flattens it after that. Motorized functions: -Driving forward/backward and turning/right. -Front blade moves up and down. -Rear tiller moves up and down. Manual functions: -Haedlight can be turned on by a switch. -Side flaps of the rear tiller can be adjusted. Powerfunctions used: - 1x Batterybox -2x IR receiver -4x M-motor -2x LED light -1x Switch A few more photo's:
  11. September 2013 the first WIP picture of my crane was uploaded, now 3,5 years later I dare to say the model is finished. In all these years I have faced a lot of technical challenges with this model, thought most of them are solved a few remain annoying (steering and drive). In the end I consider the model done and decided to learn from the not fully working features to improve on in later builds. Other tough challenges that were beaten in this model are: Fully capable outriggers that lift the complete model of its axles, Lift of the boom using a brick build linear actuator, fitting tens of meters of wire in the model to power all the led's. A full list of the features can be found at the end of the post. Even though I consider myself quite a purist a few elements of this model are not from TLC. For control the model uses 5 sbrick's together with a custom profile, enabling all the rc features I needed with a good signal . Since the PF led's are way to expensive and dull I decided to solder my own led's with the right color and a good brightness. The stickers are supplied by JaapTechnic. More pictures can be found on my flickr Full road configuration with 14.4 tons of ballast weight. The spreader plates are stored on the back. All the light are controlled by the Sbricks, this includes the indicators, beacons and reversing lights. Yes this actually lifts. With the jib mounted the piston is able to erect the then 1.7 meter boom to full height. Fully erected the model stands 2.6 meters tall. Even though the model faces a lot of technical challenges all of the details are added including full interior in both cabins. Full feature list. Motorized functions: Drive, Steering, Outriggers front and back, Compressor for the outriggers, Slewing, Boom lift, Boom extension, Winch, Cabin lift. Light functions: Normal driving lights, indicators, hazard lights, beacons, reversing lights, working lights on the superstructure. Other functions: All cabin doors open, Openable storage doors on the back, Full suspension, Folding jib with multiple angles, Folding safety railing.

    [MOC] Mack Magma

    This project was sitting on my table for a while, so after a long weekend, I put together a body and bed, and finished it up. Flickr Album Features: 4 Wheel Drive with Portal Axles Dual PF L motors for drive PF M for steering PF M for two speed gearbox Linked pendular suspension Much more at
  13. Hi All, I'm doing a project, and would like to inverse one of the LED's in the 8870 PF lights. Seem to remember I saw something about this on the net long ago, but can't find it anymore - best I can find, is schematics over here. So, the big question is: Is there any MOD so the one LED lights up at +1 and the other at -1 on the output? Any inout is welcome.
  14. Hello! I'm a first time poster in the Technic forum, but thought that my inverted spirograph might be of interest. Rather than move the pen, I used a planetary gear setup to move the paper. Different gear combinations give different results, as does the pen position. The pen-holding frame is made up from a lot of 2 x 4 bricks, but the guts of the machine is a hard plastic wheel with internal gear teeth (I'm not sure of the correct name, but this is the part I used: Sadly the spirograph has now been dismantled--my son needed the parts for a Chima vehicle... Enjoy!
  15. hello!! people ask me for put pics from my ferrari, here i will show my cars ferrari f50, f1 race car, and my mad max rc power functions dodge my ferrari its for just showing, not for play or put motors the f1 i build the chassis to carry buggy motor and pf stufs, but im out of money so i decided to make a non motorised version and my dodge that im using 3 train power functions motors, its very fast, take more than 10km thats it i hope you like it guys!!!! pics: PB134257 by Omar Dib, no Flickr PB134255 by Omar Dib, no Flickr PB134253 by Omar Dib, no Flickr PB134262 by Omar Dib, no Flickr PB134261 by Omar Dib, no Flickr PB134260 by Omar Dib, no Flickr PB134259 by Omar Dib, no Flickr PB134258 by Omar Dib, no Flickr

    MOC: Canadair CL-215

    Hi all, this is a first aircraft, a Canadair CL-215 waterbomber in minifig scale (around 1:45). Its wingspan is 80 studs, the fuselage is 8 studs wide. The main points were getting the wings straight and getting a smooth fuselage, especially at the rear. Apart from that it was quite a fun build, although it took nearly two months. Being a complete newbie in building airplanes I was very glad to see that I had some predecessors. It helped me a lot to look at their versions of the Canadair. That's why there are quite a few credits: John Lamarck, Bombardier CL-415: measurements, proportions, wing profile vincez01, Canadair CL-215: fuselage, landing gear Zorko Huljic, Canadair CL-415: tail Last not least a big thank to my dear friend Steffen, a LEGO plane specialist, who gave me a lot of advice. Take a look at his fantastic aircraft: Some more pics: Side view: The plane fits two whole minifig pilots, as you can see here: Furthermore the aircraft has some functions: 2 engines (run by a PF M motor each) flaps (run by a PF M motor) movable rudder, coupled with the steerable nose wheel Video (sorry for the bad quality, it's just to get an impression): The plane was built to be moved by an LCS (see http://www.eurobrick...showtopic=91937). It was quite suspenseful to see if a plane with a weight of over 1 kilogramme could be pulled by it. In fact it's no problem, as you can see here: This is quite nice because like this an airport with taxiing planes is possible which widens the possibilities when planning a town layout. That's about it so far, some more pics on Flickr, if you're interested in this. C&C welcome as usual, thanks for looking.
  17. Hello LEGO Trainenthousiasts, I've made a PowerFunctions-IRcontroller for 4 trains + lights + 3 railswitches with servo's based on an Arduino Uno R3 : https://forum.arduin...?topic=369292.0 One of demands was also using the older LEGO RC-trains.

LEGO Mercedes-Benz Actros 4160 SLT With Nooteboom MCO 121 by Jaap Kroon, on Flickr LEGO Mercedes-Benz Actros 4160 SLT With Nooteboom MCO 121 by Jaap Kroon, on Flickr After years making prototypes of steered trailers, we, JaapTechnic and LiftingBricks, finally made it to create a system to make a semi trailer with automated steering axles. This system uses the angular displacement of the fifth wheel to steer the axles. This all happens with pure LEGO powerfunctions. In the following video you can watch this system in action. In the video are the following models presented: Nooteboom MCO 121 semi trailer Mercedes-Benz Actros 4160 SLT Volkswagen Transporter T5 escort van Liebherr LTM 11200-9.1 build by LiftingBricks For the Nooteboom and Mercedes are building instructions available.

  19. Hi All, I managed to get a used 7898 set, working just fine, but the power button on the engine does not seem to work, so I have to take out the batteries in order to power down the train, or the batteries drain over a day or so. Any recommendation or pointers if it's possible to repair it? I assume that it's supposed to turn off the power when pressed? Thanks..
  20. Hi I have an EV3 and I was wondering how people control power functions motors and lights from the EV3. I have done some searching and found the following solutions , I was hoping some one might have tried these products and could give me some feed back . If you have any other method of doing this let me know. mindsensors PF Motor controller for NXT or EV3 (PFMate) GlideWheel PF and RCX Motor controller for NXT or EV3 hitechnic NXT IRLink Sensor
  21. Hello everyone! yeah i know, i have to finish the stratos first ....the thing is that on 15th of august, all the italians go to have a picnic in the wild, so as i'm going to the mountain i NEED to have a 4x4 to bring with me :D So after Vitara it's time for Samurai, and this time it's gonna be huge and possibly dark blue! My goal is to have these features: 4x4 lockable center and rear differentials high-low ratio gearbox winch dark blue color fabric white soft top lights if i can, i'd like to make a mechanism to operate the following sequence high ratio -> low ratio -> diff lock -> winch so the car could handle every situation (hope you got what i mean XD) for now i only built the front axle :) i hope you'll like this project!

    Bugatti Type 35

    Here's my latest attempt at a race car: Bugatti Type 35. I built the body in more of a minimalistic design to reduce weight, and increase speed. The power is provided by two L motors, and the steering is controlled by a servo. https://lh6.googleus...E=w1233-h925-no The steering system is something I came up with. I don't think I've ever really seen this used before(please tell me if you've seen this anywhere else before),and it seems to work really well. In the video above you can see the steering in action. I'll post a video of it driving as soon as I can.
  23. Hi I am new here, this is my first post this is my latest supercar, Lamborghini SV powerfunctions + technic + + mindstorm pneomatic 50 % Software 50 % Hardware complete gallery http://www.brickshel...ry.cgi?f=534033 or Lego Technic Site
  24. Good day, I'm new here at Eurobricks, but I've been building with technic for a couple of years now. Here is a preview of my latest moc that I've been working on. Once I complete it I will post a video and more pictures. If you want to see other mocs I've built in the past they are mostly here. Oh yeah... I'm not really a huge fan of ford, but nobody else has really built this truck so I thought I would give it a shot. Four Speed Gearbox! (controlled by 2 pf large motors, and driven by 2 NXT motors) Realistic Pneumatic power steering. And last of all a cool little ford emblem I came up with.
