  1. Lego Technic 8479

    Yes, both motors are almost completely equivalent, though performances of original 71427 motor were slightly better.
  2. Powered Up

    This is extremely surprising, if only because the new Boost/Wedo 2 motors are named "...lpf2" (LEGO Power Functions 2): https://brickset.com/search?query=lpf2&scope=All
  3. Thanks for the photos/confirmations. The PCBs of your V1 receivers are slightly different from the old pre-V2 ones (photos on my remte receiver page), but all use the same LB1836M chip so performance should be very similar. As a side note, the number above the channel switch is most probably a date code of PCB manufacturing, well in sync with LEGO date code on the case: 36N5 PCB was done in 2015 week 22 31N6 PCB was done in 2016 week 23 20N7 PCB was done in 2017 week 10
  4. @kbalageAs far as I know V2 receivers are printed "V2" so most probably LEGO reverted to old design because of M-motors problems. Unfortunately I have no receiver from recent sets so I can't tell for sure. You could try to open yours, needs to be careful when pulling the circuit board but it's not very hard (see here http://www.philohome.com/pfnxtremote/pfnxtrem.htm). You can then see the type of motor driver used...

  7. Yes, the alkaline batteries voltage drops quickly as you use it, while rechargeable one has a much more stable voltage. So performance is similar. For more details, see http://www.philohome.com/batteries/bat.htm

  14. @kbalageAs far as I know neither thing is directly possible. One workaround is to use image import in LPub. You can draw a circle (PNG with transparent background) and overlay it with the model. You can also add a zoomed area (eg. from snapshot with LDView) to show local details. Not perfect, but...
