RC PF Warthog

I'm having loads of fun with my new PF stuff. Unfortunately it's not minifig scale and it can't really fit any sort of figs. It also doesn't have all wheel steering or suspension. I was really trying to get a good mix between functionality and looks.

    Sterling K: I wasn't aware of that. I really don't do too much with MOCpages anymore. I really don't get upset about people not giving credit when they've made it. People are usually smart enough to figure out where the inspiration came from. I get upset when that take my photos and claim them as their own. I encourage people to try to replicate other people's creations...they may be able to learn something. Thanks for the heads-up.

    I'd feel that way too. As they say, "Imitation is the greatest form of flattery."

    How is the RC function? In general I mean. I'd like to get one but I'd really want to run my creations out in the yard. Are the motors powerful enough and the IR range more than twenty feet?
  • Tyler 6y

    ^ I love the RC functions. Of course it's IR and not radio controlled so you have to always have direct line of sight from the controller to the receiver. I actually tried running this outside in yard but for some reason it didn't work unless the controller and receiver were within inches of each other. I've watched a good many videos of other PF RC MOCs and I can't remember any that were outside. I'd venture to say it's designed to be used indoors.

    The motors are pretty powerful. I used the the PF small motor for the rear wheel drive and micro motor for the steering. You can also use the small PF motor for steering so long as there is some sort of clutch. Although the drive motor is geared up, it has a surprising amount of power. The larger motor has even more power but it's harder to integrate in to small spaces.

    Hope this helps :)

    I would hazard a guess that direct sunlight is probably the cause of the IR interference outside. It might just be too much and causes the signal from the transmitter to get 'lost' in the noise.

    ^ Makes since. So I guess it could be driven outside...at night. You'd just need a good pair of night vision goggles.

    Can we see the grunt that was in there?

    This is the most boss RC vehicle ever created out of lego in the history of man kind. The sheer scale and how much detail was put into it is simply mind-boggling!

    the video is good proof, i never thought of using Power Functions.
  • Ben Caulkins 5y

    I hadn't realized you built THIS Warthog too!
