This Christmas Santa Sleigh has been made for celebrating the 2015 year, as a gift to you, fan friends and followers ! That is why I have included also a complete buidling instructions with proffessional looking, in order to enable you to rebuilt it, this lovely sleigh with Rodolphe !
The functioning is basic, A M motor placed in the sleigh makes rotates lever which is connected to the frame. The whole sleigh plus reinder are mounted on beams and articulated frame, in order that when one goes up, second goes down. The M motor also drives the reindeer thanks to U-join and makes rotate 4 lever which are connected to the legs. The kinematic of the legs is made with one lever, a swing L shaped beam, and two beams. This simplified configuration is inspired by work of Shadowfax lego based on and the work of awesome Theo Jansen (the father of many kinetic animal).
