Mmmmm difficult question. The electronics are pretty poor so I ended up spending more for Gecko G540 controller. With that in place it works much better. Not a cheap upgrade though...

Overall it's fine for lightweight stuff.

I don't know what I would use the sensor to control yet but I do know what I would control it with. Our underground travel network uses mifare ultralight cards. These can be read at the frequency of your rfid reader though because the ticket system uses the lock bits, (I have checked) they can't be written to. The unique Id still can be used to trigger events and they have the advantage of being free/recycled.

Yes the problem turned out to be software rather than hardware. The library is on my git hub. I have not documented it yet, but I think I will get that done later this week.

My son was gutted when the London Underground train I bought him did not fit the wooden track he already had.  Time to print some narrow guage!

Nah not yet. My machine is in an unheated garage and it is definitely winter here on Scotland. I will be back to it soon

I don't see why an education establishment would align themselves to Cameron's No campaign. Not really the place to go to for a balanced world viewpoint then?
