FIRST COTS shopping cart

Hey CD, I’ve had an Idea floating in my head for about a year now for a all encompassing COTS item/resources list. I figured that coming out of build season, there are a lot of people with a lot of ideas that are active on CD rate now. My vision for this is for it to be a resource that teams can use to make better, more informed designs and therefore, more competitive competition. It will provide links to all the various items and online resources used by FRC teams from all the various providers. Wheels, gearboxes, gears, belts, cameras, programming resources, JVN calculator, podcasts, blogs, everything.

Below is a link to a editable Google Doc that I made, please fell free to either post below or go in and add links, categories, etc… My vision for this is for it to be a resource that teams can use to make better, more informed designs and therefore, more competitive competition.

At the moment it is a skeleton, but with the help of everyone here on CD, I believe that this could make a huge difference for many teams. Than you for any help you can provide.

Spectrum (3847) also has an excellent spreadsheet similar to what you’re looking for. You can find it on their blog here: http://spectrum3847.org/spectrum-robot-design-sheet/

In a similar vein, has anyone made a compendium of “KOP Items” (anything ever in a KoP or FIRST Choice) for CAW purposes?

Fell free to add it! The more that can be consolidated in one spot the better!
