  1. Good Evening,

    My son and I have put the mBot together and did the line follower and the avoidance programs. We would like to use the remote but cant get it to work and there is no instructions that would could find on how to connect the remote or if we have to reset it. Please let me know.

    Thank you,
    Robert Bitgood

  2. I bought “Makeblock Arduino mBot Educational Robot Kit with Bracket and Servo Add-on Pack (Bluetooth Version)”
    The servo portion is not covered in the instructions at all.
    How should it be connect? How can I use it? Need answers.

  3. I’m trying to use mblock on Windows Vista, but it crashes whenever I connect to mBot through bluetooth.
    Is it compatible with Windows Vista? System Requirements just say “Windows or Mac operating system”.
