Hi everyone. As you know, the PF servo motor (88004) is out of production and the units left on the market are reaching collector's prices ... Do you know a valid alternative product? I tried with a couple of different Chinese copies of the 88004, but in both cases the steering control is not gradual, but only has 3 positions (all right, center all left). Would it be possible to program a PF motor, like the M motor, with Brickcontroller 2 or similar products, in order to rotate by a defined gradation and then automatically return to zero? I mean in a similar way to what the 42124 does through Control +, which through software transforms a normal motor into a servo motor.
Hi all, I'm new here, but been an AFOL for a few years after my "dark ages". I'm a collector - I like the big cars and constructions machines, so recently I decided to get the Crawler 9398 before it goes out of production and get ridiculous prices... I really liked the suspension, looks and the possibilites with the PF parts that we get in this set. So I got a new one, and unfortunately the servomotor (the one used for steering) seems to broke after just 6 days (I still used the 1st set of batteries on it, it wasn't used in any hard conditions or abused in any way, used only indoors). The servo does not autocenter anymore after releasing the controls. This is my first IR remote set, so I don't have many ways to troubleshoot if it's the servo or the IR receiver fault (tried both channels, new batteries, didn't help). Wrote to lego support, but I don't have any proof to show that I bought this set recently (lost the docket), still didn't get any reply from them (it's 4 days). I took a look inside the servomotor, there was a lot of white grease inside it, removed most of it and it started working again after reassembling, but then finally broke the next day (again no autocenter, this time for both directions). I made a youtube movie that shows how it behaved before I took it apart - has anyone seen something like this, is there any fix? I must say I'm a bit disappointed with this set and lego quality - my previous 'flag ship' 42009 came with 2 missing parts, and now this...
