missing kit parts

We are missing both double cyliinoids, optical sensors, quarter-inch air tubing, and all the quarter inch air tubing connectors.

Is anyone else missing these parts, or is it just us?

We're missing them, as well. Along with a few other things.

"Solenoids" are what you're referring to. Honest mistake. I don't mean to sound like a jackass.

I thought the optical sensors came with the EDU robotics kit. I can't remember seeing them there but I have to go to the lab to check, which won't happen til tomorrow.

We're missing a hole bunch of pneumatic stuff, all the SMC stuff. I thought that I heard that SMC pulled out and there would be an alternative supplier.

Whew... so we aren't the only ones with LOTS of stuff missing.

By the way, did anyone get EXTRA stuff in the kits?

Router Fence

At the Novi Kickoff, My team got what appears to be a router table fence in a long cardboard box. I seriously doubt that this is what we should have gotten. We do not appear to have the 2" x 4" x 36" aluminum extrusions and some of the shafts listed in the kit BOM. Did anyone else in Novi get this same thing?

Unhappy

Yes- we are missing the same items too. We are rookies and glad to see that others are missing their parts too. Do we wait until Tues when we hear from FIRST?

The optical sensors come in a yellow (manilla?) shipping envelope, in the same box as the software and MSC's "Big Book" catalog, I believe.

These boxes were not handed out at the San Jose Kickoff, and were shipped to teams.

If I recall correctly, this is pretty commonplace with FIRST. Not to knock them, or anything, but it's true. It's not easy to manage the collection and redistribution of hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of dollars worth of equipment to more than 800 different locations throughout North and South America (and part of Europe, is it?).

Patience is key, but I have to admit that I was very worried about all of our missing 40 Amp self-resetting breakers, until I got a reply and clarification from Dave Lavery, himself.

Most of this i can't comment on, but the OI, OI modem, and the joysticks came with the Edubot.

We are missing a lot of parts too, including optical sensors and tubing for pneumatics, and other stuff that I can't remember right now. I wonder if all teams who attended the kick-off in Toronto are missing them, or if there was another box that we did not pick up. To all teams that have all the parts: how many boxes do you have?

We don't have an OI and joysticks either. Does this mean we have to use the ones from the EDURobotics kit?

To those who saw the EDURobotics competition in Toronto: WE are the team that dumped balls into their own goal I know this was stupid, but then we are a rookie team And they could have gone over the rules in more detail. At least I was not driving

Your EDU robot should have came with a slip of paper stating that the operator interface was to be used for the main robot.

There should have been 2 plastic crates, 1 cardboard box, and your manual from the kickoff.

The optical sensors are shipped with the Big Boog from MSC, and the software Visual Studio, and file maker pro
