    It's not finished, but this LXF file should cover the internal details:

    Those wheels look so flimsy, but it doesn't appear to be a problem. This is beautiful.
  • Tim Gould PRO 3y

    You ridiculously amazing bastard.
  • Jared If only I remembered.... 3y

    They are pretty cool.
  • Duncan Adkins 3y

    SO great. You should've had it race the Traxx car, then do the falling over scene! Great work, and NPU with the cement barrels!
  • Pascal PRO 3y

    Ok, perfection achieved.
  • halfbeak PRO 3y

    I had fun building metal grude. I'm definitely going to try to build this one!
  • marshal banana 3y

    This thing is so sweet! As I saw it the first time I thought ok a mecha. But then I saw the video: o my god. This is so genius!
  • ZetoVince (George Panteleon) 3y

    Once again a mindblowing creation!
  • Mradakov 3y

    Holy Crap. But how?!

    How many remotes do you need for this one?
  • mahjqa 3y

    Mradakov At the end of the video there's a short bit where you see how a single leg moves. Actually, you only need two remotes; One motor moves all the levers that are used for walking*, and there's another two that drive the wheels on the left and right for tank steering. The fourth motor is used either for the eye, or to wave the arm.

    *There's one bit where I reused the walking mechanism; when it drives in the video it leans over to the left and to the right; that's actually the walking mechanism in a different configuration.

    Stunning!

    hi mahjqa, me again...
    after several months lurking on bl... i'm still missing some parts...
    now it's almost 95% done... my son really like it much :D
    may i know the configuration for it to leans over to the left and right while drives... i think it need 2 remotes?

    best regards
  • mahjqa 1mo

    shpluct

    2 remotes would be best. And yes, due to the way the walking cycle works, there is absolutely no way to drive perfectly straight.

    Glad to hear you and your son like it :)
