Today I dare to show you a video of my own, featuring a model made with my EV3 and published yesterday to celebrate the 31313, MINDSTORMS EV3 official kit release date.

I was tinkering about a robot able to do some kind of somersault, and for a set of reasons ended with something a bit different. Hence I went looking for a different name and came up with this carthwheeler thing.

Just waiting for some new link tread attachments (14149), to make it turn smoother and less bumpy...

This is also a video for a movie competition running among MCPs, at ReBrick.

If you liked it and have a LEGO ID or a ReBrick account, you may also consider to visit ReBrick and "Like" the bookmark for this video. Otherwise it is maybe the time to consider creating your account... And do not forget to share!

The video above is just a short version of another one you may like to see as well.

All the failures footage seen in the final, have meanwhile been fixed (e.g. building a more robust logo). Just didn't have to mood to film it all again...

Please, can you make article about the compatibility of ev3 remote control and PF system?
And something about ev3 motors compared with PF motors?

Ok, I'll consider doing the remote part. Just give me sometime... :)

I found out about a LEGO Mindstorms competition that might interest you. Cheers

@Io: if I'm not mistaken, electrically and mechanically the EV3 motors are the same as the NXT motors (just with different mounting possibilities), which in turn use the same motor core as the PF XL motor (but different gearing). And the small EV3 motor, again if I'm not mistaken, uses the same core as the M motor.
