8292 Cherrypicker RC
Fully remote controlled version of 8292
About this creation
The challenge was to keep the overall look and feel of the official 8292 Cherrypicker, but make it fully remote controlled. I had to add 3 additional M-motors and 2 receivers in already quite a small model. Also I wanted to keep the pace of the movements natural as well, so it's easy to control.

Can you see big differences with the original?


Bottom view with 2 motors and some clutch gears. Also the differential is visible here.


Top view, where you can see the 3rd motor and the 2 IR receivers, integrated in the cabin. The 4th motor for the steering is hidden in there as well.






Cabin full of technical stuff and wires.












Steering behind the grill.














Lots of gears in front of the boom.








Details of what's going on at the back of the chassis.






In action.

I know this is like a bump, but I noticed how you didn't apply stickers on your own set. That made me wonder, do you have any input of the stickers, like placement and style? Also, I love this set (I have it.) Nice job making it. It is quite a marvel you made this work. I attempted to r/c it, and I failed without keeping any functions!

Quoting Halhi 141 I'm curious, did you design this set with the intent of eventually motorizing? Or did the idea come to motorize it after the set was complete? And from what I read on another website, I'm curious, when designing the set did you have the intent of being able to tip the cab? .
No intentional preparations whatsoever. No tilting cab due to the heavy batterybox. And the complete motorization was just an afterthought, that I started to explore way after the model was launched on the market.

You did a great job on both the motorization and the set itself.

Quoting Me Technic How did you make it steering so well, because i'm making myself a rc lego technic car and i don't know how to make it steering i've used the same things as you did: motors, IR Recievers and remote control, so can you please show my how to make it steering well. Thanks
Just make sure you gear it down enough. I used a gearratio which is close to 6:1. I also included a clutchgear to prevent the motor from stalling. Hope this helps.

Quoting The Builder Need's a video,To show it working!
I agree, so I included the video I made a while ago. Unfortunately it only shows the overall working, but not the details.

Quoting Eric Sophie Hey there you are! You have a nice set of MOCpages! I don't recall seeing this RC Cherrypicker before! Good work! Glad we linked up!
Hi e! Good to hear from you. Hope all is well. Yup, the upgraded Cherrypicker is quite recent. I was bored and wanted to see if I could make it full remote. I can still call it a full MOC as well, because the original is also my design. :-)

Appreciating how hard adding RC functions can be while maintaining an existing LEGO model as far as possible, this is definitely an "excellent" from me. Pretty dense motor packing! Groetjes, NXTLiftBoy

Quoting Morten Frandsen Nice remake of the cherrypicker. I like the fact that it is very compact yet it still has many rc functions. Only four because it's not an original moc.
Well actually it is an original MOC. Maybe I designed the original as well... ;-)
