It would have been extremely prudent to have actually read the document and just maybe one would have found this statement:



FIRST is all about technology, learning, applying what's been learned.
I did read through the document, and I liked what I saw. I wanted to implement it on our team for electrical trainings (we have been looking for "fun projects" for a while now) and so I liked the look of this. But a $50 price tag is too high to spend on trainings for just a couple of people.
If you look through my old images, you'll see that I've built a DIY PWM generator for FRC before, and I know what these things can cost. There's no harm in swapping out some of the pricier components for cheaper alternatives.
