  1. Yeah it'll be hard to judge, because for the first hundreds of cycles the o-rings aren't worn in.
  2. Man, this might be the first pneumatic set i won't buy since my dark ages. How about the new valves? Do they allow easier proportional control than the old ones?
  3. If you want to stiffen up your construction you could try to put the beams further on the outside of the construction. The distance of the beams to the centreline influences the stiffness to the power of three.

    Thank you very much. My wallet winced because now i'm in love with this set. I won't be able to wait for the price to go down All-wheel-drive with Ackermann and this awesome compact construction. I realise that a centre diff isn't needed, but still it would have been nice to have
  5. I've got to say that i really enjoy your write-ups (and your pictures, of course). I form my opinion on new sets based on sariel's reviews for playability and function, and your reviews for the technical insides of the models.
  6. I love small scale models and this is one of the best i've ever seen! Do you have a complete lxf? I would love to build this
  7. This thing look mean. My guess for the syringe is Speed How exactly are the front wheel brakes working? I can't see anything brake-like on the wheel hubs. But i've got to admit that i'm more interested in your test-bench. Does it have it's own topic?

    As i understood the designer it was for visual consistency: it has the same colour as the other tail lights

    Those were plastic optical fibres, much more flexible than rigid hoses. I don't know whether this polymer can be dyed without negatively influencing their lifespan.

    As i understood it, he hopes that it will be in the crane set.

    Based on the pictures we have there are 4 x 4 = 16 different gears. It could be that the secondary gear unit has only two different gear ratios. that way we get 4 x 2 = 8 different gear ratios I would love a @Blakbird render of this gearbox PS: What official video? Seems i missed something.

    I guess you mean to watch it when he releases it? Or have i missed him posting it on youtube?

    That's awesome What's the best source for the current activities of @Jim, @Sariel, and the rest of the gang in Billund? Can we expect more to come?

    I'm really curious for Jims review. I want to see how they realized the geneva mechanism to drive the second gear selector.
  15. My last experience with Mindstorms was the NXT so my questions might be outdated: - Have the considered native support for written programming languages? If i remember correctly one had to change the firmware and use a custom IDE - What sensors would they like to produce/will never produce? I would love a force-sensor. (I know you could build one with the touch sensor and a spring) - What limits the number of Out-/Inputs? - Regarding smartphones, modern consumer electronics have a very short lifespan on the market. How is this taken into account during development? Is good, is it bad for them?
