Dinotrack
« on: August 22, 2017, 10:47:48 PM »

And now for something as about spintop-unrelated as you can get. Sorry about the terrible driving on my part...

The only thing worse than a hungry meat-eating dinosaur on your tail is one with a tank. Getting caught is pretty bad, too.

This remote control menace bears little resemblance to the LEGO set it started from, both in appearance and performance. Best of all, it has more play value than any previous LEGO gizmo of mine -- not counting tops and top starters, of course. The only non-LEGO parts are the onboard Bluetooth remote control receiver and my smartphone, which hosts the joystick controller.

Photos and details here.

I thought that the lack of driving skill as due to Trex's short arms.

I actually thought the driving was very good. Except for that the last "boulder" that proved to be too much of a challenge.  ;D
I liked that the thing can spin in one spot.

Ah, so that's why I was having so much trouble!
