Eleph-Ant

Lego Technic RC Mecalac MTX

Suggested by a reader, and looking like a cross between and ant and an elephant, this Mecalac MTX articulated excavator is one of the weirdest (and ugliest) vehicles we’ve featured in some time.

However, much like the real Mecalac, this remote controlled replica by newcomer proran of Eurobricks is a very clever bit of kit. No fewer than five Power Functions motors, five linear actuators, and three IR receivers control everything from the drive and articulated steering to the outriggers, 360 degree slew, four-section independent boom elevation, and bucket articulation.

You can see how all of that works at the Eurobricks discussion forum via the link above, where there are also digital renders of the mechanics and a video of the MTX in action.
