Requested by coolblaze2019. As I was testing the features my Gauntlet was turned on so it was spazzing out on the floor. Lol

Step 1: Track3r

On the sides are sliders that control the treads. The rest is self explanatory

Step 2: Spik3r

Only goes forewords and turns. Squeeze to activate pincers. Target makes it shoot

Step 3: Ev3rstorm

The buttons are self explanatory but you need to deactivate each command each time(red button)

Step 4: R3ptar

Flick up to rattle tail down to strike. Touch and drag the screen to move.

Step 5: Grabb3r

Buttons open and close and joystick maneuvers

is it possible to resize the switches or sliders in the app? they are so big and take up too much space

I was wondering if I could possibly make my own look alike commander app that basically controls the robot but with modifications of course. Probably with coding language. if so, do you know where I could start :)

Please help. I'm doing the make your own and trying to use two buttons to control the medium motor for rack and pinion steering in Lego car 8448. I have a button for each direction. The motor spins in one direction but not the other. How do I have it work for both directions?

Hi, I'm not able to do anything with this app. I made the BT connection but it stil pops out the "Connect your EV3 Brick" window every time I press on any robot icon, but the "make you own". The iPhone BT settings shows it as connected. Any idea pls?
