Has anyone found a way to work around the limitations of the EZB V4 with the Roboquad or any robosapien? Its sad that the support was dropped with the EZB V4. I was pumped to make an uber intelligent wifi based Roboquad - but will not work.

Your posts are responded too every time you bring this subject up - as much as you're upset that those toys are no longer supported, you must accept that it is entirely impossible as the reasons stated above, on their respective pages on this site, and in my previous responses.
Thanks for replying. My roboquad worked great with the v3. It seems you could offer the same code you had before "as is" with no guarantee to users.
I applaud all you've done. It's truly amazing.
If I connect an arduino as you mentioned how would I get the ARC to recognize that a roboquad is on the other end?
DJ didn't answered the question, and the answer can bring some light to the discussion.
The RobotQuad, RoboSapien features are supported through EZB 3 firmware, they are not inside ARC, so is not a question to enable the same features with EZB 4 controller.
From a firmware hardware perspective:
EZB v3 is a PIC
EZB v4 is a Arm Cortex M3
currently there isn't a simple procedure to update the EZB V4 firmware to support new features or deprecated features.
Although is possible to develop an ARC skill plugin to support the robot, the main question is: where's the motivation (e.g. money) to support a deprecated toy ?
@DJ please correct if i'm wrong.
@ptp Thank you very much!
