Working through the when do Tute and it doesn't react to anything being sat in front of it??? Any ideas??

Basically using

Proximity==True, move forward speed 80 delay 2, followed by move forward speed 0 delay 0

They respond to white objects better. Try use paper.

We are sorry you are having problems with your new vortex. I have forwarded this issue to the tech support team who will see if we can find a solution for the middle sensor issue. We will post in this thread when we have one.

Left and right sensors are towards the front anyway so happy either way.
