  1. It also tells me I have no compatible devices to install in, and I have a few ranging from Android 4.4.2 to 9.0. I wish Play Store would say exactly why a given device is deemed incompatible with a given app.

    Yeah, tuning PID parameters is more of an art than a science. Ideally the output should follow the input as closely and quickly as possible, but in the physical world that's very hard.

    That's great info! He just forgot to add that, with BC2, you can plug whatever motors and lights to whatever ports, and use the C+ hubs in your MOCs.

    @imurvai I bet you're cursing Powered Up and the servo capability it brought, due to the whole can of worms (and headaches for you) it opened...

    You shouldn't need to previously pair the SBricks. However, at least for the initial search in BC2 I need to turn location on (it's a thing with Android, go figure). In other news, the newest Android version has been approved at the Play Store!

    Get one of these, and your problem is solved.

    Technic 2020 Set Discussion

    I would like that to happen, but I'm not keeping my hopes up: I'm still burned with the 42039, the 42069 and the 8527.

    Do you mean the "Devices" test screen? I tested PF IR, SBrick, train, and Technic, and the sliders always work to change the motors' speeds.

    That depends on the phone brand and Android version, but some of them let you choose to have the virtual keyboard pop up even when you have a physical input controller (in this case a gamepad) connected. If an icon appears on the status bar whenever you have the gamepad connected, maybe you can activate the relevant setting from there.

    For a given gamepad to work with BC2, it needs to be recognised as such by the generic gamepad test apps. Since your gamepad appears to control volume, it appears to be in a different mode than "game". Check its user manual to know how to change modes: usually it's a switch on the device, or pressing "home" or "start" together with one of the other buttons.

    The WeDo 2.0 hub doesn't recognise the PUp app. For that it would need a firmware update, but, unlike the other PUp hubs (Boost, trains, Control+, and possibly SPIKE), its firmware can't be changed.

    I'd bet the Control+ app implements a PID controller to move the motor to the desired angle as quickly as possible without overshoot and jitter.

    Future Set Wishes and Speculation

    Agreed. Another such possibility would be animals. Grohl's single-set MOCs show that Technic animals are feasible.

    Future Set Wishes and Speculation

    Would a mobile crane with the size and weight to be in scale with Unimog tyres work well with the limitations of plastic LEGO elements? We know, for example, that the 42055 and the 42082 are at the limit of what can be done.

    42099 - 4x4 X-treme Off-Roader

    I can't identify that part; can you take a photo of it detached from the hub?
