About this model
This DAF XF FT (4x2) Space Cab of model year 2016 is currently the over engineered cab over truck I have ever built. It has a lot of single stud connected parts (especially in the front) which makes it easy for parts to fall off if you crash it when driving around. With more than 1100 parts it has an extreme amount of details, a large Power Functions motor for the drive and a servo motor to steer.
See the video for help with the constructions process. I cover both how to build it with tips and tricks, and show how to include lights.
The update of May 1, 2017 made the tranceiver assembly more sturdy and added a couple of missing elements of the front wheel wells
The Power Functions components of this truck are connected as follows
We recommend using the Power Functions remote for controlling this truck.
If the truck is to be driven by people who do not have experience with LEGO Power Functions, then we recommend using our modified remote which blocks the channel selector and uses a long axle as a pointing device.
