Here is my next model, a 1:10 scale replica of the BMW X3. This model was made as a non-exclusive commission. It is my first model that uses SBricks to control the model.
My customer wanted to have a model that would have both a manual mode as well as an RC mode. And since the BMW X3 is a four wheel drive car with multiple drivetrain settings he would like to get that replicated as well. So inside there are four motors that are used to drive (2L motors), steer (1 M motor) and select the drive mode (1 servo motor).
The drive modes that can be selected are:
- manual mode
- rear wheel drive
- rear drive with driven center differential (effectively giving a 75-25 power distribution between rear and front axle)
- four wheel drive
Next to the motors the model is also equipped with eight LEDs for the front and rear lights. The outer LEDs function as indicator lights as well as normal lights. Everything is controlled through an SBrick profile on your smartphone.
PDF Instructions are available in my webshop. JaapTechnic has made stickers for this model, these are available on his website. The partslist can be found on Rebrickable. A custom profile for the SBricks can be found on the SBrick site.
