    Seeing as we can't get close to a real IronMan suit yet... could you maybe take one of their mech suits and make it in to the IronMonger suit? Gives you a bit more freedom of size!

    This is not the Alien powerloader. Sorry, you have done a good job but if you don’t go that extra step and make it with legs then you have just given up and made it just like any other back yard scrapheap challenge.

    I gave up on watching two of your videos because you've crammed way too many adverts in. There's a point were watching multiple adverts for 11:00 minutes of content just isnt worth it. As soon as you start to pay attention its disrupted by nonsense. bad call.

    world of tanks is very funny i like it

  • Rhenn

    why not do legs as the main form of motion and then during exertion on the mech and the pilot, for instance picking up a load, have multi-directional tracks on the feet. Use a large area for the feet with tracks or wheels to maintain a center of gravity. You keep the aesthetics of a humanoid look as well as have the mechanical advantage of tracks or wheels

    Anyone else realize how they bought a skid steer already and didn't use it or is it just me well they did use it they just forgot the thing has tracks on it I guess unless in the next episode they use there already existence skid steer tracks

    You should do both and make two, one with a pair legs and another with treads

  • Shanethefilmmaker

    Since you based your bed pod off the hypersleep pods in the movie I have a funny suggestion. You should recreate the classic opening of the movie with that bed. Making it look like you got out of hypersleep for a job that requires the loader.

  • Shanethefilmmaker

    Treads are a good idea. Mainly because while it's not quite accurate to the movie, the movie itself takes place when the Weyland-Yutani was already a powerhouse for years. So odds are their first loader probably did have treads before they moved on to legs.

    A few flaws, sorry, arm length will it reach far enough after equipping to a tread drive assembly to lift anything. Other flaws; weight in drive section otherwise it tips forward or turtles once load is put on. And finally, weight can once it's assembled can it handle itself or will it be a statue. The last item isn't the same as the same as the second as it deals with mobility not balancing a load.

    what a massice disapointment, honnestly expected by the hacksmith to cheap out and just "finish the project" its not a power loader... you have the capability and could have been the first real power loader in history, instead you shit on the ALIEN name and turned it into a treadr loader. such a shame, cant follow this BS anymore. WHAT A SHAME!

    But you can use two legs with huge weels and gyroscope i think it would be awesome.

  • Elected Elite
    Elected Elite

    They need a longer base, or long feet.

  • murderdogg

    I'm convinced there are some electronics/gyroscope technologies already out there, that would help these iron beasts balance themselves. You have concentrated on genius level hardware, but even Furrion pilots manually switch the hydraulic valves. Maybe Ben Heck or Element 14 could help. -If I was building the Power Loader. I would use small tank tracks, but on (limited) articulating legs 8:16 "Tregs". You can hide them under boots. The machine that lays concrete road curbs has the perfect sized hydraulic treads. However your idea is better.

    • Hacksmith Industries
      Hacksmith Industries

      Just before Christmas, picking up the track loader tomorrow :)

    • murderdogg

      @Hacksmith Industries I can't wait for the next episode, to see how the tracks work out. Should be soon right?

    • Hacksmith Industries
      Hacksmith Industries

      The issue is you can't get tiny treads rated for 10,000+lbs! Furrion is manual because they want it that way -- it could certainly be controlled with a computer if they wanted to :) Ours the physics just doesn't line up. The fictional design is just far too top heavy, and when picking up a load it would be impossible to keep balanced. Legs could work but it would be a statue
