About this model
The Magnum is one of the original models of this site and one of the most technically advanced models.
The decoupling mechanism is activated by the steering motor, but might engage prematurely when turning.
The headlights allow up to two sets of Power Functions LED lights.
Note that changing the battery box requires a significant part of the cabin to be disassembled. The truck also has very poor rear wheel grip when a trailer is not attached.
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.
