This is third in a serious of FIRST LEGO League (FLL) Robot which can be made from a single LEGO Mindstorms EV3 (Home 31313) kit and a handful of other LEGO Technic Parts. It was built with the intention of being demonstration Robot that the team members of the Metal Minds Robotics Team I mentor could build at home with their own EV3 Kits.

This Robot is a development of the Mark II Robot with a number of refinements, and the addition of another Power Take Off point at the rear of the Robot. This later addition allows for two Powered Attachments to mounted on the Robot at one time. Another improvement which greatly improves the Robots Turn and Straight Line accuracy is the replacement of the Jockey Wheels with a pair of  “Angled Ball Joints“.

When two teeth on a helical gear system engage, the contact starts at one end of the tooth and gradually spreads as the gears rotate, until the two teeth are in full engagement.

I tracked down a compatible RG11/ RG12/RG45 Modular Crimp Crimping Tool on eBay for only US$8.58 or Approximately AU$9.00. It is very well made and works extremely well, despite the price. It is also extremely easy to modify to make it compatible with the Lego Mindstorms NXT Cable Modular Plugs. It took me under 5 minutes to complete the modification with a Philips-Head Srewdriver and a Sharp Modelling knife.
