    Cool build. It looks like there is just one motor controlling it too.

    if you look at my video balance is achieved with counter weights. If all is right you can rotate the machine like we are showing with no weighted or outrigger type base.

    all you need is one motor going in one direction to make the frames spin. The one key that most people are missing out on is fixing the gear for the inner square to rotate.
