Ben Duguid works in London, UK as Head of Back-end Development for Hugo & Cat, mostly delivering web sites on various Microsoft based platforms.

He has run internal training sessions helping other developers get up to speed in the technologies he knows about, and tries hard to get others to do the same.

For what it's worth he is an MCPD in ASP.NET 3.5, and is currently a Pro-Tem Mod on LEGO Answers

Perhaps if you moved the calls to stop out of the while loop, then the motors would keep running until the colour id was 7.

comment EV3 RMIregulatedMotor Regulation Problems
Looking at your code, you're telling the motors to go at a speed of 300, then pause execution for 500ms, then you're telling the motors to stop, before continuing around again. Due to delays in communication you'll probably find that this will cause a stuttery motion that you might not notice when running it on the device.

Cheers dino, and welcome to LEGO Answers. Sadly Rex states that he's already tried re-installing the firmware on the Brick in question with no luck.

Yes, that seems to be the considered opinion among other model train geeks - more so with the standard Hornby couplers where they are basically fairly thin loops pushing against each other ;)

Hmm, and it's not like a standard loco where you could flip the tender and loco around due to the massive cow-catcher...
