    Hi Nick,

    It's a know bug in the iOS apllication, but our developers already fixed it. ;) The new fixed application will be available in the Appstore soon.

    You can use your own background in the Profile Designer. Just choose a background, edit it with paint or photoshop as you want and uplodat it ;)

    How about taking pictures in the ios app somewhere i can't connect to my photoalbum or camera on the ipad mini is it a wrong setting or is it somewhere in the app i can't really find the problem and it would be nice to have the original pictures by the original models
    And in the profile designer are some possibilitys to add some skins ass arrows,hook and lightbulb or flashing lightbulb to put next to your sliders and joysticks like the one for the 42009 crane
    At the moment i run a rebuild 42042 and its stil under construction id really would like it that i can put the right simbolics next to the determined slider,switch or joystick specially with a lot more functions it would be handy grtz nick

    How many XL motors would it be possible to connect to a single sbrick?
    hHve 4 XL morotr that I would like to control at the same time. Would I need one or two sbricks for that?

    You can use one SBrick for that, but the current limit of the LEGO power source may degrade the power of the motors. Alternatively you can use custom LiPo or you can hack the battery box..

    Hi, You can use LIPO 11.1V! It's powerful and light. Perfect balance :)

    You can use both, Matt. There are Pros & Cons:

    - Disposable batteries (1,5V each) deliver 9V but are heavier than LiPo batteries

    - Rechargeable batteries in a standard BB are usually 1,2V types. They are as heavy as disposable batteries but, by definition, can be charged again and again.

    - Rechargeable LiPo battery boxes deliver 7,4V and are lighter. They are rather expensive, so it's a personal choice regarding your budget !

    In terms of power for an RC Car: the current draw of a given motor doesn't really change: for example, the 5292 RC Buggy motor draws around 1,4A, no matter what the voltage is.

    The power is equal to the voltage multiplied by the amperage, so if you choose 7,4V instead of 9,0V, the electric power - hence the mechanic power - is of course lower by 18%. You will save something like 30g, but that's nothing in the global weight of a Lego Technic RC Car. And the power/weight ratio is critical for a car...

    How this will help :)

    Hi everybody, I've just purchased a Sbrick! ;) 
    I'm happy to support you in these wonderful project.

    A question: I am working on a buggy and I want to know which battery pack is better to use with Sbrick. There is no difference? 9V or 7,5V?

     

    Thanks!

    Matt

    I have solved the problem by myself.
    I have used the password from this forum and this is different to the one sbrick send me after my registration for bying some hardware.
    I thought the "social login" would base on this social forum...
    But now it is working and I cannot wait to receive my two sbricks!

    Hi,

    I am new here and I hope this is the correct topic...

    I hve bought 2 sbrick (which has not yet arrived) and I wanted to "test" the iOS App in advance with my iPhone 6.

    The problem is I cannot login to the social network? I have tried to use the same login l am using for this site and I think this is correct.

    Any advises for me?
