Very nice! A good quality project. Fav is coming! I would like to mention though that there is a block in the EV3 environment called "Invert Motor", which will do just that! Check it out! Maybe post your program too!


Thanks, MS_robot. There is something wrong with the website, though. I can edit, but when I confirm changes, it doesn't show the changes. Techs, please fix this problem!


Since I can't edit, I'll say it in the comments. The 36-tooth gears that are connected to the motors are interlinked with 24-tooth gears on the same axle as the wheels; just some more detailed info on that. And if you're wondering why I said 3 videos but there's only 2, it's because I keep reaching an error page when I try to upload the second video.


Also, whoever is rating everyone's projects with a 1 star no matter what the project is, PLEASE STOP THAT!


Nice job, its a pretty amazing design. I like compact but useful/functoinal robots. I want the ev3 so bad but it is really expensive. 4 Stars!


good job! some tips for new inspiration: *You can connect a shooter to it. *Connect a IR to control it. *I think you dont know what the Shooterbot from the NXT 2.0 set does, but it moves around, and if it sees something, it shoots. *I see to your creations, and i see moving robots, but non-moving robots are also fun! You can check my robots, or a color sorting robot? *I dont know if you have>>>>>


>>>build the Bonus models, but those can give you also inspiration. Succes and fun!


Thanks a lot, lama-mantis! You're my top #1 supporter, and I'm very grateful for that. Check out EV3TANK V2, coming soon! Sneak peek: I've added an IR like you suggested. I know about ShooterBot from my friend jacobritz, and I like the program of it. I'm having a lot a fun by building my own robots. Thanks again, lama-mantis!

EV3TANK is a very compact and simple tank at only 7.375 inches long (16.5 cm), 5.5 inches wide (14 cm), and 5.375 inches high (13.5 cm). This is my very first robot that I've built all by myself, which means I didn't: customize/modify an official LEGO model or fan-built robot, copy a robot, and used no instructions. When I built this, I didn't go all fancy. I worked three long hours building this, so please comment and rate; don't forget to favorite if you like EV3TANK! For detailed info on EV3TANK, please read Addition Information. THIS IS MADE WITH ONLY ONE 31313 EV3 SET.
