    That also has the advantage of splitting the battery drain between two power sources instead of just one.

    You can make your own PUp cables without ruining components, some big Chinese online stores already sell PUp-compatible plugs and sockets.

    If you use "dumb" PUp motors instead of L, you could rig up a simple cable splitter to stick them all on the same hub port. But you'd have to change the gearing, as I think those are faster and less powerful than PUp L.

    You can confirm this by going to the "Controller" screen in BC2, pushing the stick all the way to a corner and seeing if the values for both X and Y go to +-1. As for attaining x = 0.1, that's the difference between quality controllers and cheap controllers: with the cheap ones it's very difficult to have consistent values other than zero/full. That's a hardware problem, and the best BC2 can do is what it already does: give a choice between linear, log and exp.

    Hmm, I'll look into what the issue might be. Thanks for reporting it. That isn't happening to me (I'm using the Android version): I have a Technic hub amongst my list of known hubs, and can connect to it without searching (or even turning on location).

    The WeDo/Batmobile motor is roughly the same size as PF-M. Unlike the other PUp motors it doesn't have position encoding but neither do the PF motors.

    I'm not sure about the elements (design + colour), but I have no doubt at all that we'll see the designs used again: moulds for plastic injection are expensive and, once TLG make one, they'll want to make the most of it.

    That means the Osprey-exclusive parts will have to be available to Customer Support, which in turn might mean they'll appear at BAP.

    Would this mean they have an EB account to snoop around here?

    Won't pebbles also wear out LEGO parts, such as the "teeth" in an excavator bucket?

    Slap an "18+" label on it and you're done.

    I'd classify it as a mod.

    Elements and battery box, besides B&P, will surely become available also in other sets.

    42113 Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey

    That can be solved by ditching the 42113 set number and assigning a new one, effectively making a whole new set that happens to have the same parts list as another. A set renaming due to corrections has happened before, with the 10213 (again with the 13, see a pattern here?)/10231.

    While I'd love that you and that store were be right, I'm not keeping my hopes up. Less than a month is just too short a time to recall, redesign and repackage a few (thousands?) of sets.
