FTC Team Email Blast *12* 12/09/2009

Post by Admin on Wed Dec 02, 2009 10:32 pm

Hello Teams!
This is team email blast number 12 for the 2009 FTC Season. You should expect to receive weekly email blasts from us. The Team Email Blast is generally the way we communicate information about the program to you. That information could include competition specific news, software updates, trainings, or anything else we think you might like to know. This email is intended for FTC teams and is sent to the main contact listed in your team record.

Programming Concerns:
We’ve learned about a few technical issues in both LabVIEW and RobotC. The issues will be addressed in upcoming revisions, but in the meanwhile, the work-around solutions are here:

Problem: DC Motor Configuration issues can occur when a team creates only one control (either DC or Servo) but not both.
Solution: The work around fix is to create both a DC Motor Configuration and a Servo Configuration, which will make the update VIs work as expected. The key is to visit both tabs of the Motor Configurator and click Save on both.

Problem: Motors or Servos don’t seem to move when you program them to.
Solution: Please visit for debugging hints for this problem.

Problem: Robot program has been updated and downloaded to the brick, but new program doesn’t appear on the brick.
Solution: Please visit for a work around to this problem.

Approved Bluetooth Adapters:
It is strongly suggested that teams use the ABE22 Bluetooth dongle that is supplied with the kit of parts. Any other product may not perform as well in a competition environment, and is not recommended.

Go Team!
