A cool rover using Power Functions.
About this creation


Here is the Power Rover Version 2. I say version 2 because I used to have a BIG and BULKY one that was a wee bit unmanageable. So, what I did was set out to create one using Lego Technic pieces. It was a sucess! After some tweaking, I got the motor and the gearing to work just fine on rough terrain. I also found out that if I used the right pieces, then I could make the gearing so that I could easily make it go fast, yet losing stregnth, or make it go slow, but regain it's immense stregnth. All that without having to run to get extra pieces, because I made every extra piece from the gearing have a place.




Here is the top view of the Power Rover. You can see that the battery box and IR reciever are on top.




Here is the side view. Not much here...




This is the bottom view, you may need to look at the actual size image to see the details.




Here is a quick look at our gearing, this was hard to stabilize because the "m" sized motor is actually a lot stronger than it looks. So when I first started on the gearing, my axle messed up and I needed to re-gear it and stabilize it.




The main part I like about this MOC it that I can control by the IR remote, which is a neat, but expensive, thing to have.




One other thing I taylored this MOC for was an easy removal of the battery box/ IR reciever. I needed this because I like to make random motor MOCs for fun so I needed something for a quick take-apart. in the picture, it shows the motor still attached to the rover. Don't worry, that comes off too.

Yes, it was a very easy thing to build. It has also proved well in the past to get little kids out of your hair as they find it amusing to play with the remote and car.


Don't forget to check back for an update to this model!(version 2.1)

Thanks for commenting!

Quoting J.C. Stewart How did you steer it with only one motor? It looks pretty complicated from my point of veiw.
I have not yet implemented this function, as I do not have the money for an extra motor.
