Repenting for my Electrical Sins

We’ve sat here for 2 days troubleshooting an issue with our talons not responding to controller movement. Our lead programmer just proclaimed that, if at the end of this, it turns out to be an electrical issue, he would be so mad. I swore to him there is no way it could possibly be an electrical issue.

I just looked over at our motor controllers and realized they weren’t plugged in to the RoboRIO.

Our controllers work now. :rolleyes:

*It’s disappointing to hear stories like this.

With proper troubleshooting procedure it shouldn’t have taken more than 15 minutes to isolate the problem.
