A Blacktron land vehicle that uses Lego Mindstorms NXT to drive.
About this creation
This is my first Mindstorms vehicle! You can input a set of driving directions, download it to the Mindstorms NXT brick, then watch it drive around! I've already ran it into the wall three times :)
The Blacktron HPV (Heavy Patrol Vehicle) is used for patrolling large plains and deserts in a wide range of weather conditions. Currently deployed on Spyriana (homeplanet of Spyrius) to guard a hidden military complex deep within the Great Spyrius Desert.
This is a part of the Whitetron group storyline: "Whitetron: Spyrius War". Check out our group if you want to read our multiple storylines and / or contribute!

Sweet! It must be interesting to watch it move around in person (aside from the video) due to the rear steering. Cool idea to build this!
Thanks! Actually, there is one motor per front wheel, and the back just reacts to where the front is going. This, of course, makes it harder to maneuver in reverse. I could add the third motor to control the back steering...
wow it can actually drive! i didn't know lego did that sort of stuff. the vehicle turrets are cool and the entire thing is just ace. check my stuff. oh and have you got aquaraiders stuff cuz i need people with them to join the trident team.
