I am the lead mentor for our team…I am going through first choice right now, and was wondering what items you think will go fast? Also, what would you recommend for rookie teams? i.e. I am not sure if we will use pneumatics yet, but the pneumatic tubing might be useful since we didn’t have any in our kit.
Is it better to go after sensors and motors? Or gears, sprockets, lazy susans, etc. I feel like this is so hard without a design in mind. Are the normally expensive parts the ones most worth getting on first choice?
I feel like we should wait until we have a design, but I’m afraid the “good stuff” will go quick.
It would be wise for you to order the normally expensive things first.
My team is planing to pick up the batteries, door motors and light sensors first, however we have two designs already. It would be best for you to have an idea of what you want to build before ordering any parts.
Just guessed as we don’t have a design yet. Mostly pneumatics (tubing, valves, and fittings)as there was limited stuff in the KOP. Seems like those parts are harder to find locally. Also picked up the Lazy Susan’s and the shaft encoders. Also the van door motor. Did manage to get the order to 100 points exactly.
