If  you are looking for other robot ideas, check out _www.NXTprograms.com_ 
(http://www.nxtprograms.com/) . On this site, the  author, Dave Parker, 
provides many great ideas of how to build things with the  NXT robot, not just 
FLL robots. Additionally, his NXT-G code provides many  great examples of how 
to structure the logic and function of the program to  make the robot work 
well. Finally, his code is very well documented with  comments, which the 
FLL judges like to see. J

Subject: EXT  :Re: [VADCFLL-L] Robot to Build?

You’ll  see a lot of rookie teams show up to a competition with the same 
robot  configuration you’re talking about – so don’t worry if that’s what 
your team  ends up with ---- and this is a KEY reason why it is so important 
to  participate in a competition – it will open their minds to what’s 
possible –  even if they don’t think they’re ready! 
Second  – there are tons of resources out there with pictures and video of 
different  robot designs and demonstrations about what each might be 
particularly good  at.  YouTube and Flickr are searchable for this purpose.  The 
really  cool benefit is that the kids get an idea about what might be possible 
without  getting a good enough picture to actually copy.  Very few YouTube 
videos  come with build instructions so they’ll still need to design, adapt, 
and build  the thing themselves.

Subject: [VADCFLL-L]  Robot to Build? 
 
Newby  here with a basic question.  We have the board and all the items 
built so  making progress.  My son built the robot from the instruction manual 
that  came with the kit, 9797 in the lower right hand cover of the  
instructions.  Then he decided to take it entirely apart to  take the batteries out 
to replace with the rechargeable pack (not sure if  it was necessary to take 
all apart but that was what he decided to  do).  Before he rebuilds it 
wanted to make sure the correct design for  the robot for this challenge was the 
9797 build instructions.   Also, with whatever design we are supposed to 
build, are we better off  with the rechargeable battery pack installed?
 

 
Thanks  a lot for any input we can get on this,
 
Scott  James
