I joined the BuWizz guys to pull off a feat we’ve not seen before – towing a full size car with a LEGO machine powered by a single BuWizz unit! Zerobricks designed and built the puller, they brought it and the car to Budapest and I filmed it 🙂
Let me show you the app that I use for most of my LEGO RC stuff – the great BrickController 2 created by Istvan Murvai.
Exclusive footage of a previously unseen RC prototype of the LEGO Technic 42077 Rally Car! We took the risk to get this video & photo material for you, stay tuned for more details soon!
The long wait is over – instructions are published for the reworked 42069 Extreme Adventure full RC mod!
I had a chance to test this fantastic little buggy, agrof was kind enough to give me the opportunity to drive and film his latest creation. The buggy has 4 wheel drive, it is equipped with 2 L motors and a Servo motor. It has an AAA battery box and an IR receiver by default but for this occasion I swapped them with a BuWizz unit and also replaced the wheels. The location is the beautiful hill of Hegyesd (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hegyesd), hope you’ll enjoy the video as much as I enjoyed shooting it 😉
I was asked many times before why I do not try a “proper” RC car instead of my LEGO RC creations, so I decided now to give it a go. The JJRC Q60 6WD RC truck is a really cheap one (currently available for $30-$35), it was really interesting to see how it compares to the different LEGO RC vehicles I have.
While I was filming the review video of the new 60197 Passenger Train set I realized that the operating range of the remote is much better than I thought it would be based on the early reviews. Since I was able to test it indoors only with 10m distance (easily passed, even through 2 walls) I decided to compare it with all the different LEGO RC solutions I have. Took all the equipment outdoors to a remote area without any interference and tested the operating range.
This is the second episode of the Lego RC basics tutorial series, focusing on the different power sources available, how they compare to each other and what configuration I recommend to use.
