SPIDERS!

Trying a new type of walking mechanism to mimic a spider!

VTOL up to start and Roll to steer.

The smaller one is scaled at 0.25, and the larger one is scaled from the original by 0.5.

Although you can speed them up when scaling down (parts don't explode as much) the original is still faster due to longer legs!

Full size version:

Enjoy

    The fact that your starting to go on and do this kinda stuff is annoying and concerning to me...
    The planes were so much better
