A quick heads up, I rant a bit about the lack of Power Cells supplies
We got only one Power Cell in the KOP and its outrages as the robot can carry 5 at a time.
Andymark is out of stock for the offical Power Cells and buying a similar ball isnt an option as the shooting mechanism might work with this offbrand ball but not with the Power Cell.
Anyway when AndyMark gets the Power Cells back in stock, the shipping (at least to Israel) is way way way way overpriced at 666.06$ for shipping alone (24 Power Cells)
I think First MUST include more game pieces in the KOP especially when each time (at least in Israel) pay over 15K$ for registration (for 2 district event, not including any championship)
AndyMark (or any First supplier) MUST prepare a large stock of Game Pieces especially because there is such a big demand of Game Pieces after the kickoff and during the build season ( they are quite overpriced anyway)
Anyways, is there any alternative to get Power Cells?
Are we going to let this supplier slow many teams down during the build season because they didnt prepare enough Power Cells?
We can’t do proper prototyping and designing for the robot since we have only one Power Cell
