BigDaddy Front - front wheels mechanism module for a large LEGO Mindstorms Competition Robot

We've separated the BigDaddy robot into a few smaller modules. This teaches modularity and gives you the option to reuse some of the modules and to look at specific modules.

Constructing BigDaddy Competition Robot (Part 3 - Front to Rear)

Based on your feedback we have decided to show you the live process of building a complex LEGO Mindstorms EV3 Competition robot without having the whole robot ready yet. We are continuing from part 2 where we finished the 'front' of the robot and now we will extend it so that we could also attach the rear part. 

Constructing BigDaddy Competition Robot (Part 1 - Front)

Based on your feedback we have decided to show you the live process of building a complex LEGO Mindstorms Competition robot without having the whole robot ready yet. We would be making mistakes, showing them and taking up the challenges right in front of your eyes. The first construction would not be perfect but we would eventually arive at it. 

Constructing BigDaddy Competition Robot (Part 2 - Front)

Based on your feedback we have decided to show you the live process of building a complex LEGO Mindstorms Competition robot without having the whole robot ready yet. We are continuing from part 1 where we finished part of the 'front' of the robot and we arrived at a construction that we didn`t like and would fix in this video lesson.

Two rear motors on BigDaddy Competition Construction Robot (Part 10)

Based on a request we are showing the robot construction with two rear motors instead of a differential. In this way, as a construction, it is closer to more students, but much more challеnging for programing.
