Canadian Eh?

Drevil44Drevil44 Caledon, ONMember Posts: 4
Hi to everyone, I am yet another 50+ guy living just north of Toronto, Canada who grew up building countless things with all my Lego bricks many years ago. I have recently become a fan of motorized/RC Technic builds. Recently I have begun a monster build of a 1:40 scale fully functional NASA Crawler Transporter vehicle. (Am ambitious project I must admit). I was wondering if anyone might be able to offer me advice regarding self-leveling sensors and mechanisms? The crawler needs to climb a small grade to the launch site while the rocket and launch platform it is carrying must remain exactly level throughout the journey. My understanding is that the NXT gyro sensor cannot provide level feedback info but maybe the WeDo 2.0 Tilt sensor might be able to work? Does anyone have any build experience with this they can offer me?

    Hi @Drevil44 ! Welcome to the forum. You'll find quite a few fans of motorized technic builds here, over in the Building section. If you start a thread there I'm sure you'll get some useful advice.
    My own Technic skills are 3 decades out of date...

    Welcome! If you're interested, Toronto has an active LUG called ToroLUG. You can find us at torolug.ca. To my knowledge none of the LUG has specific knowledge of the WeDo tilt sensor but I'll ask around.

    Thanks for your replies. I will put a post in the Building section as well as look into joining the ToroLUG. These are both great ideas. Cheers!
