This year, Built On The Rock is taking a break from FLL. However, a couple of the team members and I are forming a new FTC team with some members of Team Overdrive, the World Festival robot champions from last year's FTC competition. (The other members decided to move up to FRC this year). The new robot system used in FTC, which combines the NXT with stronger, more powerful, non-LEGO construction pieces and motors, looks really nice. It makes sense too; the NXT has great processing and sensory power, but the LEGO construction system and NXT motors just aren't made for big, strong robots. Once we get our kit and the season gets underway, I'm hoping to post a lot more information about the system; it seems like it could be really useful for many applications other than FTC.
Any other NXT people out there looking at or getting into FTC?
