Week TechVideo, 2012 #36 - London 2012 doubledeck bus

Today it was the Closing Ceremony of the London 2012 Paralympic Games, city were the Olympic Games also took place the last month.

To celebrate the occasion I just selected one video from Gabor Horvath (minifig88) about his RC, minifig scaled version of London's famous doubledecker bus, with London 2012 stickers!
What this has to do with LEGO Technic you ask... It is a small brick stack model fully motorized with PF elements. We have seen even smaller motorized models but most of the times those use the old 9V micromotor to implement the steering.

Here we got it all PF!

For the case you're in certain countries where the video is not available for copyright reasons, here you have one version without music.

Two PF M-motors (for drive and steering), on PF IR Receiver and one PF Rechargeable Battery. And this is it!

With a few photos and short explanations, Gabor shows how to Zip everything into a small tiny space.
You may find these, at his space in MOCpages.

Please avoid sending requests to post specific models on this TBs section.
We understand some of you would enjoy to see your creations featured here, but please understand  that because only one video gets highlighted per week, it is impossible to accommodate all the great MOCs continuously build by the Technic builders out there. They simply won't fit all and that's also not the purpose of this blog (see the header statement).
Many of your MOCs are scanned anyway and listed for later publication when they do not fit immediately. However some remain in the backlog queue just for too long and eventually loose the relevance or the publication opportunity window. As a rule of thumb, we also avoid publishing MOCs that have been featured by their authors or other fans at some other great web places dedicated to the Technic community out there. It doesn't mean that occasionally some won't get published here anyway.

Thanks for your understanding!
