    Your bot looks great for a rookie team. We didn't do as well because the tuning field was off from the match field and it screwed up vision tracking.
    I can't find you in any pictures either...

    Also, I'm working on a FIRST Usertitle.

    I have gone to a few first competitions. I do robotics myself actually, but I think first competitions are the most boring thing ever, and Im not sure why FIRST gets the support it does. I build 15lbs battle bots, and I think a match where an 800lbs area bolted down with 24 3/8 bolts lifts up and shears all the bolts because of a little 15 lbs bot is much more exciting. And I also find it more exciting when the weapon from a bot (miine actually lol) breaks off and goes through 2 inches of bullet resistant polycarbonate.
    See that weird box at the top right of your screen? Using that is called searching, and you should always do that before making a useless thread or post.

    because having highschoolers build battle bots isnt going to show them what the want them to get out of FIRST.

    Well, by building battle bots, I have taught myself how to use a CNC mill, use 3D CAD/CAM programs such as Solidworks(which I'm certified in), Autodesk programs, BobCAD, MasterCam, and others. I also have taught myself a little c++ for the programming of some of our more complex robots. I learned about material engineering and physics too. What does FIRST offer to better my mechanical engineering ability?

    So, basically it comes down to personal choice.
