Control+ connection bug when testing 42100 during building

UPDATE – The bug was fixed in version 1.0.3 of the Control+ app

When you are building the LEGO Technic 42100 Liebherr R 9800 set the app has a verification process built in after every batch of bags. This is a great addition because you can see whether the motors built in are working correctly or not.
