  1. Wow, that looks spectacular. I'm not sure you're allowed to say where you got the virtual model from but where did you get the virtual model from?! :)
  2. We all have to start from somewhere! :)
  3. The update should be out already, to update just check for updates in you phones store (either the iOS App Store or Google Play Store).
  4. Lucky for you there is a way to do that, it has actually been a feature for a little while now. You can use the code block to the right for simple drive motor control and use the code block to the left for simple servo control. The teal blocks represent the input from the sliders.

  5. I found that BuWizz works better in Google Chrome. For example when I tried to post a review on the BuWizz website using Safari (On Mac) it wouldn't let me. However when I tried to post the review using Google Chrome, everything worked fine.
  6. Wow, I did not even know that the Color Sensor LEDs were that good. Well I guess I'll have to wait for the new Mindstorms set. Thank you!
  7. I'm not sure if this question has already been answered but does the Lego Spike Prime Distance Sensor work with the Control+ Hub and the Powered Up app? I've been searching online and I can't find the answer.
  8. That's very interesting. I don't have that issue when I load the files on my computer. I tried all of the files and they all loaded fine.
  9. Won’t switching the motor to the other direction damage the gears? The actual set is designed to make the motor work in only one direction because it blocks the other direction of the switch on the Hub. You control switching the direction from the gearbox instead.
  10. I agree, Lego’s customer service is very good. I never had to send any proof that any of my servos were broken which really surprised me. Although, that only puts a bandaid on the problem because constantly waiting for new servos is not ideal. As far as I’m aware, there are no good third party servos yet. They all have the problems that you mentioned which including being too powerful and only making full 90 degree turns. I really hope BuWizz steps up and makes their own servo motor too because then after Power Functions dies, you would still be able to use BuWizz motors and a BuWizz servo with BuWIzz units to make a fully functional RC Car.
  11. No its not just you. I’ve had brand new servos that went bad only after like a week of use. The most recent servo that went bad was the one that I was using in argof’s buggy with rc motors. That one was only ever powered by a stock BuWizz unit and still went bad (it doesn’t return to center on one side anymore).
  12. I was wondering the same thing. Too late for me though, I already bought my BuWizzes. :)
  13. Then what should I do? TLG wont be there to constantly replace Servos after Power Functions dies at the end of the year. Therefore, I can’t have Servos that just keep on breaking.
  14. Hi again everyone, I contacted TLG and they said that replacement Servo Motors would be shipped to replace the broken Servo Motors I have. Also, does anyone know of any good third party Lego Servo Motor clones? I seen some on YouTube but I don’t know where to get them. I’m asking because I don’t want to buy another Servo Motor only to have it break after the last ones did.
  15. Thanks to everyone for sharing, I guess the servo motor isn’t that reliable after use. I would normally buy another servo motor from Lego itself but I’ve reached my limit of servo motors that I can order being shipped to my household. Lego sadly in the US limits each person to 3 of each Power Functions components per household which is sad because when I look at the European Lego website, there is a limit of 50 instead of 3 for each component for European customers. You guys are lucky :). Interestingly 2 of my 3 servos have different problems. One doesn’t center fully and the other doesn’t return to center when you let off the IR remote quickly like it used to (See amorti’s post in the topic to see what I’m talking about). I tried various solutions first I tried, However this didn’t sadly work, then I tried to correct this with the BuWizz power curves feature (I use BuWizz for my RC MOCs). In theory this should work but in practice the power curve interface isn’t accurate enough to make small corrections, so you either overshoot the servo position too much or too little. I hope so too because when PF dies, I’m still using it for most of my RC MOC’s. However, I really hope they make good versions because when I heard about the Chinese Monster Motor (Clone of Buggy Motor) I heard many stories of people’s motors just burning up.
