    Mini tracked vehicle

    Here is a small vehicle that I built. It is very small and easy to build. You should be able to replicate it from the pictures;) It is fast, stable, and funny looking;) Now I will break it apart so you can see how it’s built:)the track base.and at last the body broken apart. it is powered by BuWizz 2.0 and is driven by two m motors, one per track. Any questions or comments, please let me know;)
  2. This is a type of steering for a tracked vehicle that uses so-called subtractor which means input from motor used for steering is subtracted from the main drive input
  3. This is yet another C-Model for the LEGO Set 42095 "Remote-Controlled Stunt Racer". This time around, i challenged myself to use the available parts to build a war tank as closest as possible to the real, generic vehicle. I used the smaller sprocket wheels on purpose to make this model run slower to better resemble the real thing, as the original set doesn't have gears to adjust the velocity. It is powered by the 2 L-Motors, it can go forward and backwards, turn left and right as needed. The front is clear to easily overcome obstacles; on the rear there is a space dedicated for cable management. I tried to keep this build as compact as i could. It may not seem like it, but this was quite the challenge, it went through various revisions and parts optimization until i became happy enough with the result. It can be further improved and modded with additional parts, but i wanted to keep it as a C-Model, so i was restricted by the set's available components. Building instructions available at https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-65285/davejsp/rc-cyber-tank/
  4. This is basically a C-Model for the RC Stunt Racer, but instead of using the 2 original L-motors, i used 2 fake, chinese, buggy motors, which are more than enough for this build (they are also pretty cheap for the performance they pack and you can easily get them). Aside from the motors, all the parts used were taken from the set 42095 "Remote-Controlled Stunt Racer". The design is very compact and sturdy, cables are very well protected inside, the battery button is easily accessible on the back, the IR sensor is well disguised and positioned. It was made with the objective of being very fast and able to easily drift and spin, which i find to be more fun than doing wheelies, it's also very cool to do races with it and will require mastery to control due to its high speed. Building Instructions available on rebrickable.
  5. Hello everyone. I just want to share a MOC i've made recently, it is a c-model of the set 42095 "Remote-Controlled Stunt Racer", so it was designed using only available parts on that set. It is quite a departure from the original, no one would think it was possible to build such a racer with this set. It uses a single l-motor to power one of the rear wheels and the other l-motor is dedicated to steering, which returns to center automatically by using a rubber band. I released free instructions for the steering system i developed for this MOC, check them here. The only limitation are the "tracked wheels", since there is no rubber, they don't have traction on smooth surfaces, this vehicle can only run on rough terrain like dirt, sand and snow, so it is basically an off-road racer. I tried to add as many details as possible given the available parts. The battery pack button is easily accessible, the IR receiver is on top to get the cleanest signal possible and the cabin is used for cable management, giving it a cleaner look. Building instructions are available at rebrickable, i also have a mechanical steering version here if you prefer. It is somewhat big, but lightweight and sturdy, so the l-motors can do their job easily and it runs quite fast. A quick video showcasing it is available here. For anyone who decide to build it, the most obvious modifications you can do is to replace the "tracked wheels" by normal off-road tires; or to apply rubber studs. Everyone feel free to share your opinions.
  6. Just an idea I've had for one of my projects but eventually decided not to use it because it looked wrong for this particular project. It works fine, though, so I'm sharing. It's pretty simple and may be obvious, but perhaps it will help someone.
  7. A simple tracked loader model with Control+. Features subtractor drive, arm elevation, bucket tilt, and lighting by Brickstuff. Functions/features: Subtractor drive Arm elevation Bucket tilt Lights (Brickstuff LEDs) Photos: Video:
  8. Hi, I have designed a series of tracked vehicle using either 4 or 6 L or XL motors with two buwizz. And the problem i keep having is that after about 30 seconds to a minute the power to one side is shut off. If i then leave it to rest for a minute it will go again, but it will cut out sooner after that. The components to not heat up noticeably. I have experimented with different sizes and weights, and the problem is more noticable at higher speeds and weight. but weirdly enough it runs fine before the "limit" kicks in. I have cross connected the motors so it is not one buwizz that is at fault. Is there some sort of power limit i am reaching? Thanks in advance.
  9. I'm doing something simple this time after building two complex MOCs. Given that I'm busy with college right now, this should be a pretty manageable project for me. It'll be a simple tracked loader model with subtractor drive. I've already got the subtractor mechanism built, and it'll likely be the rear sprockets that'll be driven. The propulsion motor is a C+ XL and the steering motor is a C+ L. The C+ hub will likely sit in the front of the chassis towards the bottom (assuming it's the rear sprockets that'll be driven) and bucket elevation/tipping will be a C+ XL and C+ L, respectively. As for the bodywork, I'm planning on making it bright light orange with the pieces from the 42099 set. If you have any suggestions for me, please let me know. Photos:

    Telescopic Extender Car

    Hi! I built a telescopic tracked car, that can extend in two directions to overcome obstacles ? Have a look and subscribe to my channel, if you want more videos like that (building instructions available). Thanks!
  12. The crawler tractor with a realistic steering system. It is driven by a one XL-motor. 4 levers let you: - start engine; - select between 2 speeds (forward and rear); - steer. You have to pull the two central levers to turn the tractor left or right. Once being released the steering levers automatically return to their zero position. Update:

    [TC17] FrankenBase

    It has been years after the unspeakable and the survivers used whatever machinery they found to make a new start. The last bit of civilization was rebuilt in a form of the mobile base nicknamed the FrankenBase due to the nature of it's design. Frankenbase was assembled from the following leftovers: Buckets and bogies from a pair of tracked loaders Front frame, suspension and axles from a monster truck Command bridge and helipad from a stranded ship Crane and two containers were salvaged from a dried up port The base also features three support vehicles, a quick buggy, a small bulldozer and a helicopter: To propel the massive base, all wheels and trackes are driven and suspended: The suspension allow the massive vehicle to easily crawl over rough terrain: The track bogies can also steer, giving the FrankenBase a very tight steering radious: The only way to acces the abse is by lovering the ladder in front, which also serves as the ladder to acces the walkways surrounding the entire vehicle: The crane uses a special mechanism which locks onto containers in order to move them: The command deck is protected by nets and features controls: View of the backside with the crane raised: Some trivia about the model: The entire model took me around 2 weeks to build All functions are powered by 19 motors and controlled by 6 BuWizz bricks It measures over 130 cm long, 45 cm high and 40 cm wide The weight is estimated to be around 7 kilograms This is my second largest model built, first being the Go-kart It's one of my most eccentric builds ever The different colors are intentional, representing the chaotic nature of it's envoirment Size compared to the Liebherr: See the model in action the video:
  14. MPATEV-01 -> Multi Purpose All Terrain Vehicle 01 LDD file DOWNLOAD The attachments and other photos: WIP TOPIC MPATEV-01 -> Multi Purpose All Terrain Vehicle 01 Hello there! haven't been on the forum for some time and seeing such a contest pop up was a truly delight. Of course first ideas were of the movies "Martian", "Avatar", and "Interstellar", and the idea of building a spaceship seemed exiting. Therefore, i made a sketch of a VTOL transport ship: However building a freighter or a spacestation didn't exite me so much afterall (absolutely nothing to do with my unfinished tc15 plane ) so the next obvious idea was a rover. A human-manned one of course. Seeing that the currents WIPs were using wheels, I had a quick browse through lego sets of space/sci-fi themes and quickly found the Exo-Force 8118. It had a combination of double tracks in front and a single wheel in back that got me interested, as it was unusual and cool-looking, so this sketch came to life: It was originally planned to use brick-built tracks on front but small track links with turntables for central wheels should work. Most probably double offroad motorcycle tyres on rear (better start saving up for PP wheels duh). Obviously doubly buggy motors with 1.667:1 reduction + nuclear reactor BuWizz to power this thing. Current progress:
  15. Hello! The 42069 was the first set I’ve bought for about 15 years, and despite my initial intention to play with it together with my 4-year-old son, I soon got into modding it quite heavily, and he went back to his City and 42023. :) So here’s what I’ve done to it so far. ADDED COMPONENTS List of motors and electronic components added to the model: 4x PF L motors 1x PF XL motor 2x PF M motors 2x PF Servo motors 1x PF switch 24x Brickstuff LEDs 2x BuWizz 1x sBrick some PF & Brickstuff wires DRIVE The drivetrain/axle design is mostly RacingBrick’s design with 4x PF L motors (one for each track/wheel connected directly) and a Servo for steering, with some cosmetic changes to avoid self-disassembly of the suspension on rough terrain. ORIGINAL FUNCTIONS Both side compartments now house BuWizz units, the walls separating them from the middle section have been removed, and the space itself no longer exists, taken by a single sBrick and quite a lot of wires (more about the setup later). The fire extinguishers now sit right next to the seats, ready to use. The shovel drawer remained in place and functional, now also containing the first-aid kit. Pretty much all of the truck’s functions have been motorised, similarly to RacingBrick’s version. I left the rising door mechanism unchanged, I think it’s really cool as it is. WINCH The winch mechanism has been completely ripped out and rebuilt. To provide greater momentum, I used the more powerful XL motor, which I installed right behind and below the front bumper. The first version of the winch was geared 1:1 using three consecutive 32072 knob wheels for extra durability over standard gears, but since they kept getting stuck, I replaced them with regular 16 tooth gears. I considered an alternative setup involving a worm screw, but I wanted to maintain decent speed of the winch. The whole mechanism fitted inside the original bumper design which I modified later (it looked a bit thin to me), so if you like the big motor but not the puffed up front bumper, you should still be able to employ it. Since I didn’t use a clutch gear (which would have ruined the performance), to protect the XL motor from being turned on accidentally a safety-valve was installed in the form of a PF switch, activated with a turn of the gear/knob originally used for the winch. The original tiny hook has been replaced with the 70644 metal hook for extra durability. Alternatively, I sometimes attach the 95354 anchor - it looks a bit freaky, but so does the whole model, and it’s the best solution for hooking the winch up. OTHER There are also two PF M motors: one powering the fake V8 engine, geared up 5:3, and the other one raising the roof. LIGHTING I put a lot of work into the light system of the model with the use of Brickstuff LEDs. Without the additional lights on the interchangeable roof racks the lighting comprises of 24 LEDs: two for each of the main headlights, one for each bullbar light, six blinking turn signals (including one light on each of the wing mirrors), two lights on the original roof rack below the antennae, two taillights (white LEDs under trans-red tiles), four stop lights (similar as taillights next to the reverse lights plus red LEDs under trans-clear round tiles on the trunk door) and two reverse lights. The LEDs are powered from one of the BuWizz outputs via a Brickstuff PF power source with variable outputs. This certain piece deserves a few more words, especially for the readers unfamiliar with Brickstuff. One of its three outputs is always on (thus, all LEDs except for the turn signals, stop lights and reverse lights light up the moment BuWizz connects with the controlling device) and the other two outputs depend on the PF channel activation; in this case the BuWizz output for the lights is synchronised with the steering Servo, resulting in lighting up the corresponding blinkers. Lastly, the stop and reverse lights system involves another Brickstuff gimmick: magnetic switches. The circuit is closed when a small magnet (which fits inside a Technic axle hole) approaches the switch. I put the magnet inside a 1x2 thin liftarm, connected to a Servo, controlled in sync with the track motors. When the Servo is in neutral (with the model stationary), the magnet closes the circuit powering the stop lights. In reverse it approaches another switch, closing the reverse lights circuit, and in forward position it opens both circuits, cutting out the LEDs. (I know it’s a bit much to add a heavy motor just to control some lights, but I couldn’t think of a better solution - any ideas?) An extra bit of lighting comes in the form of two interchangeable roof racks, installed roughly in the location of the original HOG steering knob. I was curious about Brickstuff High-Power LEDs, so I put two of them behind some trans-clear 24116 curved panels and on the roof. The other version of the roof rack includes four regular LEDs similar to those put on the bullbar. The lights are connected to the main grid through Brickstuff vertical connector, which eliminates the need of connecting and disconnecting the fragile wires with every change of the racks or their complete removal. Since the complex lighting system tends to consume a considerable amount of BuWizz’s battery juice, I used another vertical connector to put together an additional master switch, disguised as a red toolbox and located between the dark green jerrycans on the roof rack. BRIDGING LADDERS The last modification, or rather some additional equipment is a pair of bridging ladders, which can be folded and stored on the original roof rack. Fully extended, they’re 49 studs long each (just a bit longer than the truck itself) and, although a bit flimsy, manage to support the weight of the model while crossing gaps or climbing obstacles. There’s also a removable, extendable ladder added to the rear door. CONTROLS As for the double BuWizz-sBrick setup and controlling the model: the BuWizz unit in the right side compartment powers both right L motors, the steering Servo and the winch, and the left unit powers the left L motors, the fake V8 and the sBrick. The raising roof, the LEDs and the Servo controlling the stop and reverse lights are all powered through the sBrick. That leaves one last sBrick output free for some other uses, i.e. motorising the doors. The whole setup is controlled through BrickController2 with the use of a physical controller (a bluetooth gamepad). The app works great with virtually no lag and allows for quick profile changes; I created two profiles: one for regular driving and one for tank driving. Obviously, all the extra elements made the model quite heavy - it now weighs 2700 grams on tracks and 2575 grams on Unimog wheels. However, 2x BuWizz units manage the weight rather effortlessly, especially in Ludicrous mode. OVERALL LOOK Having modified an already sticker-heavy model, I decided to go a little bit further and add some BuWizz & sBrick stickers and Brickstuff printed tiles (three of those came as bonus with consecutive shipments from Brickstuff). The front of the model now looks a bit bulkier with the new bumper, and the addition of the bridging ladders to the roof rack gave it an even more adventure-ready look. I replaced the 2654 trans-clear round tiles on the bull bar and roof rack lights with a trans-yellow variant - I like the look of yellow headlights on vintage race cars. Additionally, the 3069b trans-clear 1x2 tiles on wing mirrors have been replaced with trans-orange ones, because of their newly acquired function of blinkers.

  16. Functions/features: Driven tracks Articulated steering Tipping bed Opening cabin doors Video: Photos:
  17. Hey guys, here's a rather simple project I recently started. I wanted to build something that's highly playable and not too complex, so I decided to do a tracked vehicle of some sort. However, this one will be unique in that steering is not done by tank drive, or by traditional steering. It's by an articulation joint like a front loader. This model will have all-track drive, articulated steering, and a pneumatically tipped bed. The bed will be on the rear module, which will contain no motors. All motorization is done on the front module and the only things passing through the articulation joint/turntable are the drive axle and pneumatic hoses. Propulsion is done by a single L motor above the front differential, steering is done by a M motor that controls 2 linkages going in opposite directions with worm gears, and the pneumatics are controlled by a M motor that simultaneously drives a 6L pump and Sariel's autovalve. The mechanical elements do take up plenty of room in the front module, but once the bodywork is in place most of it should be concealed. My main purpose in building this MOC is to find an opportunity to really use dark azure Technic pieces. My Grapple Truck I6 and my current WIP Red Beryl X were both started with the intent of using dark azure pieces, but both times I was faced with a limited collection of them. I've recently ordered some extra dark azure pieces off Bricklink, and considering a cab on a model this size shouldn't really use that much pieces I think this finally be my first dark azure MOC. If you guys have any suggestions for me, please let me know. Photos:
  18. Good news, everyone! From the second attempt, but I finally managed to create this monster from the past. So, T-1000, also known as TET - Turbo-Electric Tractor, was originally created in Soviet Union in the 70s. It has manually operated hood and simple door lock. And the most important and gorgeous function - Transformation! Yes, this unique tractor can be both wheeled and tracked! When tracks are unfolded, driver's chair turns aside to provide comfortable working conditions. All fuctions that are RC: -wheeled driving - L -tracked driving - 2XL -transformation - 3L -fake engine - M -steering - M -foldable plow - L Just for demonstration I've made a simple plow, which can be attached to the rear hook for transportation or to the side hook for working position. Plow's L-motor connects to the tractor's IR reciever and then it's folding can be RC operated as well. Video as always is here: Thanks for watching. I hope, you liked it. P.S. What do you think, what was the purpose for which this tractor was created by soviet engineers?
  19. Hi Newbie around here, used to play with lego back in the days and somehow got back into it but this time as grown up and and adjusted gaming budget ended up buying some Lego Technics models along the way (mainly stuff with tracks :) ). So got my hands on the 42065 Tracked Racer, really liked it but fell in love with the B-Model/Off Road Truck and started putting my two RC 5292 motors into it. Here is a short video about the evolution to my so far "final" v5.3 Mod: Short recap about the progress: replacing the two PF motors with the RCs, and going for an SBrick increasing the wheel base and changing to 3:1 gearing, then getting to know about the fuse inside the battery box, adding suspension, moving the battery up increasing the wheelbase again to get two battery boxes inside and double the SBricks, and change to 1,667:1 gearing Putting the RCs horizontal with a 2.5:1 gearing Currently working on: Getting a GoPro attached Getting it a bit water/splash proof to be able to go through some puddles (so far cling foil wrapping battery cases) ToDo: Get some filminig done of the v5.3 with the 2.5:1 gearing Getting the PS3 controller working on the Nexus 5 together with the SBrick Future ideas Improving suspension, weight is currently heavy on the rear Getting a winch into it on the rear or front Automatic two gear box to get faster on plain surface and getting more torque when going through terrain, looking at sariels automatic two gear box so far, but it probadly wont fit p.s. These are my first attempts at shooting videos as well, so bear with me ;-) . Most of them are handheld from my Google Pixel while driving with my other hand on my old Nexus 5
  20. Hi, another Mini-MOC for you: here comes the Mini-Skidder This little thing is very powerful as it uses 2 L-Motors for drive and a third L-Motor for steering. Watch the video: On my brick safe page you can find the pics in higher resolution and of course an LDD-File: https://bricksafe.com/files/Leonard_Goldstein/woody_and_the_woodpicker/Woody-Woodpicker_V02.lxf Let me know what you think Regards Leonard Goldstein
  21. REVIEW - 42094 - TRACKED LOADER INTRODUCTION Looking at the entire range of 1H 2019 models, this model seems to be the one packing the most functions. Your milage may vary, but yellow "construction-ish" vehicles are always welcome to me. And this one looks particularly unusual and interesting. Let's find out what it is all about. This review might be less detailed than usual, but time was limited. Sorry about that. I do hope you enjoy it anyway! PICTURES Pictures can be clicked to view hi-res versions. More pictures can be found in my Flickr album. DISCLAIMER This set has been provided by the CEE Team of TLG. It's not my goal to promote this set. It's my goal to give you an honest opinion about it. Therefore, the opinion in this review is my own and is in no way linked to TLG. SET INFORMATION Number: 42094 Title: Tracked Loader Theme: Technic Released: 2019 Part Count: 827 Box Weight: 1095 gram Box Dimensions: 38,0 cm x 26,0 cm x 7,0 cm Set Price (RRP): € 59,99 Price per Part: € 0,073 Links: Brickset, Bricklink THE BOX CONTENTS OF THE BOX The box contains: 1x Booklet 1x Sticker sheet 8x Unnumbered bags BOOKLET STICKER SHEET BAGS HIGHLIGHTED PARTS PANELS These panels are new in dark bluish grey. The also appear in the Getaway Truck. 20T DOUBLE BEVEL GEAR WITH CLUTCH This gear first appeared in the Bugatti Chiron and it's good to see it pop-up in another set. Quote from the Chiron review; it's basically the same as the regular 20T bevel gear, but it has a pin hole, instead of axle hole. And it has clutches on both sides. PART LIST The part list for the 827 parts. THE BUILD The chassis already shows some of the functionality in this set. One of the rear axles is connected to the mini linear actuator and the other is connected to the large turntable. The axles are extended to outside the bodywork. You can also see the manually operated winch. The cabin is placed on top of the big turntable and can be rotated 360 degrees. That is one mean looking grabber on the boom. The undercarriage for the treads. You can see two springs, but they are not used as conventional suspension. They are used to put pressure on the sprockets. COMPLETED MODEL After adding the treads and connecting the chassis to the undercarriage, here's the final model. Two logs are included. Brutalis does look brutal. What I like most, is the design of the cabin. And I love that it can rotate freely, without any limits. This picture shows the cabin 180 degrees rotated. At the rear you can see the lever to switch between "Rabbit" and "Turtle" winch modes. Not that there is much difference between the two modes, but I like this added detail. After all, that's what Technic is all about. The bottom view of the undercarriage and chassis. Here you can see the front of the cabin, which looks stunning. As I said before, the vehicle doen't have suspension. It simply looks that way because of the springs. The rear view showing the winch, and the locking mechanism at the bottom right. The winch is operated by the 12T bevel gear on the right. B-MODEL The B-model looks promising. Could have been the main model. SUMMARY This medium sized set perfectly shows what the Technic theme is all about. It combines the looks with a handful of nice features. It does not have interesting new parts, but the features and aesthetics make up for this. This set definitely gets my nod of approval PROS Great aesthetics Rotating cabin via 12T gear (360 degrees) Raising and lowering boom via 12T gear Manually operated grabber Operating the winch via 12T gear Switching between two winch modes CONS Nothing really, maybe lack of actual suspension SCORE How do I rate this set? 8 DESIGN I love the cabin and overall aesthetics. 8 BUILDING EXPERIENCE Enough functions to provide a fun building experience. 8 FEATURES Packs enough features to make it interesting. 7 PLAYABILITY The treads limit playability on smooth surfaces. 7 PARTS Not too many interesting parts. 8 VALUE FOR MONEY Genuine Technic set for a reasonable price 7,7 GENUINE TECHNIC SET FINAL WORDS Thanks you for reading this review. All pictures can be found here.
  22. Recently, there was a contest on Lego Ideas to come up with a futuristic construction machine. I came up with this, a truck mounted knuckle boom crane with some interesting party tricks. I apologize in advance for the wall of text, as I would like to actually explain some of the details behind the design, because I did not have enough room on the actual entry page to do so. First off, why a truck? why not make some kind of dedicated carrier? My reasoning is that having commonality with standard haulage trucks would be beneficial to operating costs, and then there is the fact that in some countries mobile cranes are not allowed on the highway, so this gets around that as well. Also, I had wanted to build a truck like this for some time before the contest was announced, so that's a personal reason. Originally, I had wanted to use the cab of 42079, but the contest dictated otherwise, so I made my own cab and chassis. The crane I based this off of would be the gigantic Cormach 575000A X, as seen here: However, I do not like the way the crane looks, mounted at the back of the truck, so my version has the crane reversed, so the crossed outriggers and crane base are behind the cab. I also added an additional axle, bringing the total number of axles to seven, to reduce axle loads. As for the truck itself,ETS stands for Electric Truck System, the line this truck would be sold under. I chose a long nose design in order to provide space for a hybrid range extender, and an extensive cooling system for the electric motors. There is also an equipment rack behind the cab, in order to hold various crane parts, as well as more cooling systems for the motor controllers, and a bleed off module like a locomotive, for when the truck is under regenerative braking. As I mentioned, the truck is electric, and has all wheels driven. Unlike a standard truck, their are much lower transmission losses, and each additional axle powered only adds more horsepower and torque. Normally, the truck only has two axles driven, but any number can be driven as needed, for difficult terrain or starting a heavy load. To improve safety, the truck has an extensive network of cameras positioned at all angles, instead of mirrors. This eliminates blind spots, as the truck would have massive ones ordinarily. Another feature of the cab is the fact that the steering wheel and other controls can be swapped left to right as need be, for when the truck travels to a country that drives on the wrong side of the road. Another innovative cab feature is the VR crane cab, a fully outfitted driving station in the sleeper cab of the truck. This allows the crane to be remotely controlled from withing the cab, useful for inclement weather. This system already exists, Hiab has a version of it, but I take it much farther. The primary crane cameras are at the end of a boom, in much the same location as a regular cab would be. This gives workers on the ground something to look at while interacting with the crane. With full outriggers and full extension, the crane reaches high. Unfortunately, the pneumatic functions of this model do not work as well as I'd like, particularly the outriggers. As a futuristic function, the crane is actually dismountable, and can drive around on its own set of retractable tracks. The tracks are also mounted on a platform that can be raised and lowered, which allows ground clearance to be changed. This configuration allows the crane to be much lower, and far more compact, allowing the crane to fit in spaces the truck could not, such as indoors. Since the crane is also electric, it can operate inside buildings without exhaust problems. For additional range, the crane can either plug in to an appropriate wall socket, or receive power from the truck via a cable. I have seen a number of tracked knuckle boom cranes, but they all require their own trailer. This configuration would allow for far greater speed and versatility. Without the crane, the truck could also be used as a flatbed, to move items around. The crane has an additional normal remote control, like most knuckle boom cranes. Also a part of the interface is the warning beacon on top of the superstructure. It is a series of red, yellow, and green lights. Most cranes have a setup like this, red means overload, yellow means approaching max capacity, and green means normal. I also added a warning light on each side. These would be activated when the crane is under VR control, to indicate that the crane may move suddenly. Another idea that is hard to get across in Lego is the fact that the crane is equipped with sensors, that would prevent the crane from hitting walls and especially power lines. I wanted to add a fly jib, but due to the outriggers, that was not an option. With a fly jib, this machine would be able to do the work of a truck crane, a crawler crane, a tower crane, and a heavy tractor, all in one unit. The truck chassis itself can actually split in two, allowing the truck to operate as a heavy tractor. Stored at the back of the equipment rack is a retractable fifth wheel, which can be extended when the crane is dismounted. Getting a steering system that could be disconnected was hard, and unfortunately struggles with the full crane on the truck. And here we have the Volvo ETS 770 on its own, without the crane. As a summary of the functions, this model has: Manual: Steering Track unit fold/unfold Slewing Track Slewing Chassis disconnect Two boom extensions Winch Pneumatic: Crane elevation 1 Crane elevation 2 Folding outriggers Extending outriggers Lowering outrigger feet Raising crane body Locking to truck These are the five entry pictures, I plan on taking more later , showing off more details of the crane and truck. I hope you guys like it.
