Forger - Chopper Motorcycle with assisting wheels built with LEGO Mindstorms EV3

Building instructions for a LEGO Mindstorms EV3 Motorcycle, but this time with helper wheels. The helper wheels solve the problem of making turns with the robot. If the robot loses balance it will fall. The goal of the helper wheels is to make it easier for the robot to turn. Small modification, but really make a difference.

A robot a 'day'. The simplest solution that works. Turning with motors

Here is a good problem- turning with the motors that we've built in the previous sections of the course. You noticed that turning with the robots is quite difficult because they lose balance and they fall. So we must learn the basic thing about engineering - the simplest solution is probably good enough.
