Re: Is it worth it to opt out of the KOP chassis for a low resource team?

We spend our AndyMark opt-out voucher on the same thing every year:

It's definitely worth it for us, and the value of having additional roboRios and electronics around is incredible. Having robots to use as development beds for your controls group and programmers is massive.

That being said, it costs more than $500 to build a West Coast Drive, so I would not suggest blowing your entire budget on a drivetrain when the KoP drive is perfectly adequate.
