21303 Wall-E with Power Functions RC
A mod of the 21303 Lego Ideas “Wall-E” set adding Power Functions motors and remote control.
When I saw the official Lego Ideas Wall-E set I knew I had to have one. But with 50,- € it wasn’t cheap at all, especially considering the extra 60+ € that I would need for the Power Functions elements to motorize the set.
When I decided to go for it anyway, it was almost too late for that. I was lucky to get a set without box or instructions at the original price. That was OK for me, but not my original plan ;-)).
The plan was: “No Wall-E without Radio Control!”. So I started looking for possible solutions other fans had found.
The most popular conversion is the one built by Youtube user PPung Daddy, but I wasn’t really satisfied with it. The cables of the motors were positioned too close to the ground, the battery box wasn’t really fixed and the IR receiver looked almost like a backpack.
So these were my main tasks when I tried to build my own version of an RC Wall-E.
