The image passing by the building is awesome.

Nice build.

I'm getting the itch for something a little bigger than the micros now...

Thanx.

i have had the same problem when i tried to build a scale-ish 6x6, you either have to severely limit the up and down movement of the center of the axle or join the 2 axles together in a way the dont move away from each other while still moving separate from one another.

you could try cutting a slot lenghtwise on the inner shaft then drilling a hole on the outer shaft. running a screw through holes and the slot so the inner shaft can still slide but the screw will stop it coming all the way out.

Or a cut down cc01 shaft.

I did manage to get mine to stop pulling apart but it took 3 tries and 3 cut up drive shafts.
