The LEGO® Technic 42065 RC Tracked Racer is one of the rare sets that is remotely controllable out of the box with the necessary Power Functions elements. It is a very good introduction to the world of Power Functions, but it has some room for improvement – the speed is pretty decent…
I created a separate video with the following setup – 2 buggy motors + BuWizz + SBrick and controlled with an Android-compatible game controller through the great SBrickController app of imurvai – you can find the link to the app in this Eurobricks forum thread.
I received a great suggestion from the Eurobricks forum – test the 42065 RC Tracked racer with PF Train motors. Their rotation speed is almost as high as the buggy motors, so definitely worth trying.
Thank you very much for your nice feedback on the previous post & video, really appreciated! Most of you were interested in the details of the 2 buggy motors + BuWizz configuration, so here you go 🙂 You can find below some detailed photos of this version:
The Lego 42065 RC Tracked Racer is a pretty cool set. You get remote control capabilities out of the box – all Power Functions components are there for some real RC fun. There were some previous RC Technic sets produced by Lego, but they had a much higher price tag.
Can you spot the difference? 🙂 Full post with video coming tomorrow, check back! 😉
First project – this little fellow is quite lonely here, let’s build some friends to play with!
