In this project, you'll learn how to make a LEGO Mars rover with pieces almost any person with LEGO should have. Just remember that color is is not important, and even though I use grey and red, you could use any. some pieces of the rover can be substituted. I created this thing on Lego Digital Designer 4.3, and if you want it for yourself, download it here for free: http://ldd.lego.com/en-us/ .Furthermore, leave a like if you liked it, and if this ends up in a contest please vote!

Be careful! If you are unexperienced with LEGO Technic, this could be hard! The bushing has 4 dimples on one end, and that's where the knobs of the 2x6 base plate go.

That's cool. I am going to have to check out this program. I think that my son would get endless hours of entertainment from it.

Have fun using it, I've been using it for long and it's got thousands of bricks!
