After weeks of R&D on the concept of the 'Rover' (and much inspiration from Percy) I have designed and manufactured my very own rover......NEORIZON
A lot of work has been put into this machine but admittedly, I spent much more time on the design than the engineering as you will find out :)
Nevertheless you will undoubtedly look "cool" roving through the terrain of Luna, Cylero and Beyond....
Now the part you'll actually read......
AG1 - Suspension (not a rocker-bogie system, it tends to lean to one side so Slider 1 to the lowest -100% for a while should balance it out)
AG2 - Motor (self implied, use Throttle and Pitch [for reversing])
AG3 - Solar Wings (patent pending....use Slider 1 to the lowest -100% to deploy, then Slider 2 to angle the wings for better sunlight exposure (do not increase Sliders higher than 0%, can cause irreversible damage)
AG4 - Mast Control (use Slider 1 at 100% to deploy the mast, Slider 2 to swivel)
AG5 - Kranium (use Slider 1 to tilt the rover 'head')
AG6 - Extendo (use Slider 1 to extend the arm of the Turret, use Slider 2 for the furthest elbow and Throttle for the 2nd.....if that makes any sense)
AG7 - Turret (use Slider 1 & 2 for full Turret control and Throttle for the drill)
AG8 - Electronics (Use Slider 1 & 2 to control the 'InstruGram' camera
AG9 - Lights
AG10 - Cargo bay door (contains 3 'DiagnoBot' these are deployed by Stage activation 1, 2, 3, they are used to survey the rover and analyze any hardware problem, wouldnt make sense to deploy all three at once, I recommend being in little motion when deploying)
Note: Neo has 'Vita' bulbs to show which parts are currently activated.
1. Do Not Activate Two Groups At Once, may cause clashing of functions.
2. NEORIZON is not built for speeds higher than 20m/s
Other disclaimers will added.....when I remember them
Hope you enjoy the craft as much as I did building it.
Onwards, Upwards, Always Higher!!
