Churchill bridge layer

Powertrain: 2 XL motors
Main actuator: L motor
locking mechanism: servo motor
controlled by Sbrick

The Churchill AVLB (armored vehicle-launched bridge) is one of my most interesting and challenging models that I have recently built. The mechanism utilized to lift the bridge required a lot of development to ensure that it is structurally strong enough to lift and hold the bridge in mid air.
