Hi I'm L, still mainly play with PF1 motor even PF2 has been released for now With the PF2(new electrical system that broke the old lego paradigm) PF1 motor are no longer likely to come out anymore Imao So I'd like to make compatible motor for the PF1 electric building system myself consider the proper shapes, specifications, and placement of the wires and while im making it, i wanna make it really good and nice to use, over lego motor to acieve it, I want to hear the user's reaction or wish. I look forward to hearing from your idea Question here 1. Which is more important (1) Torque (2) RPM(Speed) 2. Size(Size and torques are in semi-parallel relationship) (1) 2x2(Micro motor size) (2) 2x4(S size) (3) PF Series's was fine, just need more torque 3. Shape (1) Round (Like XL Motor) (2) Square(Like Old Lego Motor) (3) Oval(Like M Motor, Flat Bottom Type) 4. Building type (1) Pin & Hole (2) Stud & Tube (3) Axle & Axle Hole 5. the unit of length (1) odd number(etc. 3x5x5) (2) even number(etc. 2x4x4) 6. Power Supply Method (1)PF1 (2)PF2 and last, I'm going to post it on the crowdfunding site if it's a good response after I've made the motor brick prototype. So what if there was a third-party motor with better performance? 1) If the performance is good, can buy. 2) Because it is not Lego, never buy it thanks for your asnwer and have a nice day~ and any critical, basic ideas are always welcome from L
Good day y'all, Im new to the whole lego scene so please forgive me if this is the wrong place to ask this. I recently rolled in the 'serious side' of lego. I've had a few lego sets over the years and they're still on the planks in my room. But as of last week I got really insterested in making my own lego RC car. So I went on and bought a bunch of stuff: SBrick, Servo motor, some extra lights and a secondhand 42039 set (because it was cheap and the guy even gave me the power functions that he build into it) Which makes a pretty decent base to build on. And i found a RC motor (5292). Also used but it works well. Really neat condition it seems. So I started building and building and I ended up with a rat-rod design. I think it looks pretty dope. Problem is. I think it's too heavy for the 5292 motor to handle. Which I thought he would be able to because when looking on youtube for RC cars people tend to use that one a lot. So I kind of assumed it was an awesome motor to build with. How do i go further with this? Is it because the 6 AA batteries are too heavy and not giving the motor enough power? If so what would i need to do? Or is it better to ditch the 5292 and buy 2 power functions XL motors and gear up to a decent speed? Kind regards, Tim
