Fork Lift
This is a compact indoor fork lift that works with the remote controlled Power Functions system.
About this creation
 
Fist of all, be sure to check out the Youtube video of this compact indoor fork lift in action here: Youtube link.
It can drive back and forth, steer left and right, lift and lower the fork, and tilt the lifting column forward and backward.


This is a view from the back.








And here's a side view of it.








It reaches quite high, the lifting column can extend to twice its length and the fork can go all the way up.






Close-up of the driver cabin.








Close-up of the driver's seat, pedals, steering wheel and control levers.







The back opens up to make it easy to change the batteries. This thing is so much fun to drive around the floor and pick things up with, I will run out of batteries.





Close-up of the Linear Actuator that controls the tilting of the lifting column.







And finally the underworks. The 4th motor that drives the Linear Actuator is the only one that can't be seen in this shot.

this can;t get any more realistic, unless you had a driver in the seat. And RC too?!?!? WHOA!!!

This is one of the most believeable models I have ever seen! The realism, the detail, and I noticed after a while, the functionality! AMAZING! (I was driving a forklift just two days ago, and this brought me straight back to the experience!)

Mooie heftruck. Het beste is dat je er zo niet aan ziet dat hij power functions heeft.

Thanks for the compliments, everyone :)
Quoting Shannon Young Now, since you need four motors and can only control two at a time with the remote, I imagine the drive/steering are on one channel and the lift/tilt are on another? And before I go, great job concealing the IR receivers.
You got it, driving and steering is on channel 1, lift and tilt are on channel 4. The IR receivers are hidden behind the driver's seat.

Aaaaaaha! I bet they load whatever is produced at the Mindcorp Building using this here forklift and then they smuggle it abroad and sell it to foreign businessmen who are hellbent on world domination. Or maybe not. In any case, this one is as beautiful as it is realistic.

Wonderful job. I actually drive a forklift at work, and you must have too, or at least been on one to make this as accurate as it is.

From someone who has driven a forklift in his time -- brilliant! The details around the driver's seat, not to mention the rear wheel steering, the tilt of the lift, amazing functionality in a compact design. Now, since you need four motors and can only control two at a time with the remote, I imagine the drive/steering are on one channel and the lift/tilt are on another? And before I go, great job concealing the IR receivers.
