Lego Technic 42069 rc mod partial building instructions

Originally I did not plan to create any building instructions for this mod as the motorization was an ad-hoc process, tried to replace the manual parts while keeping the original structure as intact as possible. Since I received so many requests to provide instructions, I try to help you and took a series of pictures while disassembling the model. Please note that this video is far from being a complete guide – it shows how to build the 2 axles and provides some additional hints on the placement of the M motors.

If you’re looking for 3d files or additional ideas to motorize this set, I suggest you to check this topic on Eurobricks, it already has some great content and I’m sure it will have more.

I don’t think 42069 would need a wheel swap to look cool, you just need to find the terrain where rubber won’t work 🙂 Ideal vehicle to explore Mustafar 🙂

I re-used the scene built for the Star Wars motors, 42069 fits here perfectly.

Lego Technic 42069 RC mod with Power Functions and SBrick

After building the 42069 Extreme Adventure set the next challenge was to motorize it. Luckily the set has a spacious internal structure, it is pretty easy to squeeze in several Power Functions components. The aim was to add the Power Functions parts without taking apart the set completely or to change the original structure, so obviously there are more elegant ways to hide all the motors and to upgrade the suspension and the drive train. The list of the added elements:
