Week TechVideo, 2015 #14 - Truck with crane...

It was a long time since the last weekly TechVideo...
Saw this recovery truck with crane today by PipasseyoyoMOC, and saw it would a good excuse to try to restart gently.

It includes 4 PF motors for 7 remote controlled functions.
  • 1 M-motor: Stabilizers deployment and gearbox switching
  • 1 M-motor: Steering or crane rotation
  • 1 XL-motor: Propulsion or crane lifting
  • 1 XL-motor: Flatbed deployment or crane extension

I found it very smart the idea of combining the gearbox switching function with the stabilizers deployment. Obviously there is a set of functions that should work with stabilizers deployed and another set which does not.
