Hey all I'm back with an new Lego instructable! I made the first lego nxt MLRS missile launcher the shoots rubberbands in the world:D yay!
I built this because i wanted to put my rubber band firing mechanism from my Lego gun to a tank of some sort, and i came up with this. It can be programmed or remote controlled from an bluetooth pc, android or ios device using these apps, https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.urbandroid.mind&hl=en
or the standard mindstorm software for pc. This Mlrs can either shoot down toy helis or help you destroy some zombies in the next zombie Apocalypse!
Anyway now that I've made it I will show how you can make it too. But before that pls watch this video...

If you have a bluetooth enabled computer you can use the default remote app included in your NXT Mindstorms software CD.
Then test your MLRS out! If your MLRS did not go in the direction you wanted it to go please rewire your motors to a different port, but keep firing motor at port A. Thanks for reading this instructables.
