Land Raider

See it in action on YouTube.


The biggest, heaviest, most badass Power Functions - powered vehicle I have ever built. During the development this little beastie managed to grind through no less than sixteen gears, hence the nickname "The Gear Grinder".


All turrets are rotated in both X and Y axises, with each function controlled by a single M-motor. This gives it a nice average of 1 motors per 3 functions, if not counting the drive system... which needs four XL motors to drive.


Altough it was planned to have speed-increasing gearing, in the end I settled on 1:1 to give it a little more power, required to push chairs, roll over Ork bars and so on.
