I have the worst go-kart hangover ever. In the end, the reversing module, spare parts, and electrical system refactor didn’t happen, so I basically went down to the race with Chibi-Mikuvan in its late Wednesday condition. However, all the sciencing and preparation did pay off: Chibi-Mikuvan won 1st place in its 30-lap sprint race. The Endurance race the next day, however, saw my very much still beta-version non-refactored electrical system catch a case of the loose wires from the very bumpy track, an issue which couldn’t be diagnosed in time for the end of the race. The final ranking for Chibi-Mikuvan for the weekend was #6 out of a field of 19.
This is the best.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
