    I like the idea of holding down on a button (such as the red one) to switch motor modes. Potentially also to switch modes on a converter cable, rather than a physical switch.

    Coming back to the controller modes "bang-bang" or "smooth": wouldn't it be easy to update the controller and smart hub firmware to allow toggeling between these modes by pressing the red (stop) button on the controller for e.g. 5 (or 7) seconds? That would be an very easy and handy way to enable both modes with the existing controller. So, by default train motor would be "smooth", Boost and M-Motor would be "bang-bang" ... very easy to use for kids in trains and RC cars. But for more sophisticated usages (e.g. a crane) one could simply toggle the mode and have also the M-motor going "smooth". Using the red buttons for toggeling the mode also would have the advantage that one could independently use the two modes for both ports A and B. One item of my wish-list is a second controller type: designed like the existing PU controller but with analog sticks (similar to the one shown in the patent). This controller could provide a "smooth" mode with spring loaded center position. Here also a third mode would be interesting: "absolute" = motor rotates to a position defined by the stick's position between -90° and +90° (like the the PF-servo motor). Toggeling between "smooth" and "absolute" could be done similar to the way I described above - presuming a buttong is available on the controller for each stick.

    Guest Blog Post: ItLUG Lecco 2018

    On the last week-end of July, ItLUG held its main event in the town of Lecco: ItLUG Lecco 2018. It's our biggest and oldest event, its first edition was in 2006 in a nearby town, and since 2014 it's been in the modern local branch of Milan's Politecnico University, with its huge classrooms that are just perfect for a LEGO® exhibition. This year we had more than 200 registered AFOLs, coming from all over the country and also from the rest of Europe: France (LUG'est), Romania (Asociatia Brickenburg), Croatia (Kockicke), Switzerland (SwissLUG), Germany and the Netherlands. I will not a make a list of my favorite MOCs because I'm sure I'd leave something awesome out, the quality of all of them was amazing... just look at the photos! I'll just mention the very big ones... LUG'est's Paris Steampunk 1889, Brickenburg's Advanced Blacktron Spaceship, ItLUG and Toscanabricks' Duomo di Firenze, CLV's Cime di Lavaredo, and ItLUG's Centro Piacentiniano di Bergamo. Besides the exhibition we also had different kinds of activities, for AFOLs and the public: - The Vintage Museum. It has become a tradition for this event to have a section of a classroom dedicated to vintage LEGO wooden toys and early sets, to show how things used to be once; - The AFOL Video Quiz. Just for AFOLs, a quiz where participants had to guess sets and answer questions based on videos and images shown on a screen; - LEGO WeDo workshops for kids. This was a great success last year, so we decided to do it again... and it was again a success! - The Robot Sumo Tournament. Another tradition, every year with more and more teams "fighting" each other to win the tournament; - A LEGO SERIOUS PLAY® seminar for parents and children; - The CreActive contest for children, where children can build something at home and bring it to the event; - The Pick n' Build play area, where children (and adults) can build whatever they want right there at the event; - A GBC layout; - The Divine Brick-Comedy; a photo project recreating Dante's Inferno with BrickHeadz; - A presentation about the history of the 2x4 brick, to celebrate the 60 years of the brick.

    Each motor has lived a long life of powering a GBC module (or portion thereof). I do not abuse motors. I gear them properly. I just wear them out. Good thing they are cheap...

    Your motors died after a huge and intensive uses i guess? Or damaged cable...

    Jason I must disagree. PF motors have a limited life, train controllers seem to last forever. Once PF motors become unavailable without a conversion to PUP the train controllers will become useless. I own 90 train controllers and have only ever seen an issue with one I bought in a large lot (it still works, just full on). Dead motors:

    The problem is that PF motors will at some point be discontinued, so if you don't have loads of them (and I don't), you're then stuffed. As you say, the PF rechargeable battery box has an auto switch-off, and is very expensive compared to old 9v train controllers. Neither of those are good for using a lot of battery boxes in a GBC layout.
