I want to create a unicycle in Farseer 3.5. I created two bodies, a rectangle for the top of the unicycle and a circle for the wheel. But I don't know how to connect the bodies together so that it becomes a real unicycle.
How could I connect the rectangle to the wheel so that the wheel could roll realistically?

Hello,

you need to use a revolute joint between the center of your wheel and the bottom of your rectangle to let your wheel roll, and a fixed angle joint to keep the unicycle up (or use the FixedRotation property of the body ?).

Thanx. It works with a revolute joint between the center of the wheel and the bottom of the rectangle. In addition, I use the FixedRotation property of the rectangle.
I tried it with an angle joint before, but it wasn't working. I'm not sure how to use the angle joint in this case.
