About this creation


After criticisms that the Self-Levelling Radar Bike had poor visibilty for the driver and no engine, I thought that this MOC had better address these issues!

The title picture took 3 days to render and the smaller picture just one day. This was because of all of the teeth on the wheels. Normally it's trans bricks brick which slow things down.

This MOC was inspired by Crimso Giger's FebRovery Fun.

Quoting claw paradox since when do planets have posteriors??
Planetary posteriors are on the dark side of the moon :)

I think balance would be a big issue were this for real as the motor and the seat on the same side of the wheel would make it fall over. Maybe 2 small motors each side of the wheel and the seat in the centre above the wheel would address those issues. But it's lego so no worries and I like the design a lot. An actual lego motor to make it move would be awesome but where to put the battery box...hmm? Good work.

Actually, maybe the battery box on one side of the wheel, the cable running along the trailing arm in a U configuration back along the opposite arm to the motor on the opposite site would fix the balance issue and give it powwerrrr!!!

By the way, I really enjoy your ingenuity and originality. Great build.

The engine should not power the axle, but how about the engine powering a little wheel that rests on the inside of the rim of the big wheel. The weight of the engine would be transferred onto the big wheel as it is resting on the inside of the rim. That would solve the balance problem. The pilot would still turn though, rather than the wheel spinning, so a little front wheel mirroring the one at the back seems inevitable.

Engine blocks on both sides of the wheel dude, not just one. Gyroscope effect and all that. Otherwise its hopelessly impractial, generally insane and totally brilliant.

Quoting M2com McKinney Coolness! Does it actually work?
Thank you! I think that it would work in real bricks. The wheel spins freely in LDD and there's a lot more weight in the engine than the top. The top part would have more leverage, so I'm not totally sure about the balance. The other problem is that it's heavy on one side (which was a deliberate choice!) but perhaps the whole thing would just fall over sideways. Perhaps making the tail-wheels wider would deal with that.

Quoting David Alexander Smith It is a sweet ride. Your LDD is improving all the time - still I bet you can't wait to get your paws on some real ABS soon.
Finishing the big black & yellow delts shaped ship is beginning to niggle away at me. I've done as much as I can in LDD and really just need to sit down on the carpet with some real bricks!

Quoting El Barto ! Great lookin' rig! The engine set up is really interesting.
I fear that without a clever gear-box the engine will just spin itself (and the pilot) round, rather than turning the wheels!

Quoting matt rowntree I am a MASSIVE fan of The Prisoner series with Patrick McGoohan, and seeing this has made my brain bound about brilliantly backflipping biosterously. =] I was wondering what anyone could do with those cool giant wheels. Like your self leveler, this looks like it would be way to much fun to get any serious exploring done. Looks like and endo would be fatal! Love it!!!
Your Prisoner reference has set me thinking about a big white ball, driven along by a happy spaceman. In the summer, I live down the coast from Portmeirion.

Hmmmm. In the event of an endo type crash, I'm hoping the that the pilot would be catapulted up into the air, in the low-gravity environment, and then be to use a small rocket pack to float gently down. Otherwise use of this rover might have to be limited to swampy, spongy planets, covered in soft moss :)

Quoting JWG 258 Great "classic" design, coloration, and detail work on the engine. Now I have a gripe: how do you get on the thing?
As there's not much gravity on the moon (or Pluto!) I think that just jumping up on to it might be the solution. Otherwise it would have to be a very big ladder!

Aha! An even better solution than the trailer: very elegant!

I have solutions to both of the issues that you raise. Firstly, I'm hoping that the gyroscopic effect of the big front wheel spinning round would keep things upright. Obviously it would be rather wobbly at low speeds. Secondly, the battery box for a Lego motor could go on a trailer, cunningly covered in greebles. There might be some problems with transfering the torque into the wheel and making it go round, rather than spinning the engine & pilot around!
