Chainsaw Trike with Robot Driver

Check out this YouTube video of an RC motor sled with robot "driver" as they rip through a suburban neighborhood.


Danny Huynh Creations built this radio controlled tricycle with a chainsaw-powered front drivetrain and steerable rear stabilizer wheels. The robot seems to be actuated by the steering and acceleration servo motors but there must be at least one more servo for side to side action, plus he bounces with a lot of procedural secondary action. I think the eyes are moving passively with the wind.

The low-level shaky-cam POV makes the scale seem much bigger than it really is.
