Alien Defense Uni-bike - A.D.U.
A fast & agile all terrain vehicle, built for Lego's A.D.U.
About this creation


The A.D.U. - A.D.U. had a crew of two: a driver and a gunner. It was heavily armed with four "Flick" missiles and two guns. Sensors included a camera with night-vision modes and a laser rangefinder.



The A.D.U. Alien Defense Uni-bike was steered using fly-by-wire technology and maintained its balance due to a special Horizontal Overdamping Guidance unit (HoG unit). This was also known as the "Hand of God" unit.



The large tire and working suspension allowed the A.D.U. - A.D.U. to travel at high speed across rough terrain. It could be banked into sharp corners, as shown in this photo.



Whilst the HoG unit allowed the A.D.U. - A.D.U. to stop, it had to be parked in a special stand when shut down. Here we see a uni-bike being filmed by a news crew at a special fueling station.



Possibly the most dangerous part of being in an A.D.U.- A.D.U. crew was balancing up and down the access ladder to the cockpit, as can be seen at the back of this photo.



FOURTH WALL This little MOC was inspired by several things. Firstly I'm building something else in blue & yellow at the moment. Secondly, cheap A.D.U. sets on amazon. Thirdly a drawing in this book. Lastly it was seeing all NINE big, old Technic tires on Mortal Swordsman's amazing car transporter.

Really cool build. I love uni bikes and you have managed to use one of those old school wheels. The stand and fuel station is great too.

Quoting Stuart Lucas I like it! Great work with the huge tyre. I've also been looking at picking up those cheap ADU sets!
I bought a three ADU sets at 1/2 price because I wanted some more grey Lego, so that I can build some "proper" space ships, which are grey :( !!!

Quoting StoveTop Creator Hee, hee... I like the idea of the HoG guidance system and that big wheel. As we wise ones all know... big wheels often need guidance and support... they think they can stand alone, but they cant't! :)
Thank you! It could be a Handling Orientation Gyroscope instead :). The HoG thing came because it took me a while to work out how to build a stand to photo the uni-bike on, that wouldn't appear in the Photoshopped images. For a while I thought my hand was going to have to feature!

Quoting Starscream Soundwave A very cool moc, I like the cockpit, and obviously the wheel too ;)
Thank you! Glad you like the wheel :) it would look a bit odd on one of your micro-masterpieces!

Quoting Benhamin Eukatah Certainly a neat little creation. I like the two cockpits!
Thank you! I've been trying to find a use for these two canopies for a while now.

Quoting David Alexander Smith Anything with one of those big old wheels is going to be a winner. I love the intricate (and dangerous) ladder set up. The suspension looks neat as well. I only have 3 of my wheels left. On that premise expect a trike some time soon.
Goodness, those big, old Technic wheels are heavy and hard to lose! An ORRT trike would be brilliant. I'm looking forward to it!
