FTC Hot Shot
FRC Stack Attack
+
= Bowled Over
Space planning anticipates
sub-assembly conflicts,
allowing more complexity
and better access.
1) Drive Train
2) Collector
3) Scoring Arm
4) etc.
Keep an eye out for
devices that fit your
strategy.

You don't always know when something
is complete, so tighten all screws all the time.
Use Blue LocTite when
you can't use Keps nuts
Quick Access Components:
1) NXT Brick (both sides)
2) Power Switch
3) External Battery
