Hi.

Can anyone confirm if their Matrix lights on the Dome light up whilst R2 is powered up, do they come on in Patrol Mode, are on during standby.

I’ve seen a few videos now of these lights not powered up

Thanks

If I remember rightly and don't quote me in this but I seem to remember reading somewhere that they only come on when connected to WiFi. As I say I am not 100% sure of this though.

R2-D2 needs to be connected to a Smartphone to get R2 to perform all of it’s functions.

The Issue 6 LCD screen and the Issue 22 Logic function display LCD are only functional/switched on in App mode, they are not functional in Manual mode.

Thank you for that clarification

I think it's a shame that they don't work all of the time, as they are one of the things that make R2.... R2.

I also can't fathom why the sensors are deactivated in manual mode - If this thing falls down the stairs due to the app crashing or an iD10t error that's going to be game over for the droid!
