    This thread is much more intended to @richardfu_ as it is based on his level The Eagle. Indeed anyone could have the answer. I didn't want to flood the level with this point so here is the subject...

    It is first a question from my son who loves Richardfu's eagle and wants to mimic it. But he has found an issue on his path and asked me: "Dad! How is it that my eagle is not the same than Richarfu? (yes he knows your name...) So I've checked and didn't have an answer.

    So here is what he did in creator mode...

    ... and what he found in game mode:

    Despite it doesn't seem to affect the behavior it is disturbing as you (Richard) didn't seem to have the problem in your level.

    I've seen once that @meko pointed out this problem somewhere but I haven't heard that there is a solution to that.

    Thanks for any tips!

    Does it have to do with the default direction that B is facing? I'm sure it does for R bots (when attached to a metal block) but not sure about B. :confused:

    Hmm... weird. I also heard about this (that B's head rotates 90°) from @meko, but it doesn't seem to happen on my device. Maybe it only happens on certain devices and @richardfu_'s is one of the exceptions?

    Oh... So maybe it is about the OS? I only have Android devices and it happens too on my mobile phone. I remember Richardfu plays on iPad. What about you guys?

    OK. Nice clue @cpw! I have changed the direction of B to the default one and the problem doesn't appear anymore. So that's all about that. Good to know. Thanks.

    @cpw is right. It only works when B is facing bottom left. It has to do with the bot head spin bug.

    It has a whole algorithm begind it...and the rotating of B's head depends on the direction it is facing in the creation mode....i first observed it in @Sunny Sunset 's my favorite bugs 2....and I think I have devised all the cases.....if you say I can post all the possibilities here....
