I felt blessed that this year's field, which in FTC you build yourself from hardware parts, was a simple PVC pipe "board". Last year's was more complicated with ramps, lots of baskets and other assorted field parts.I am not in that area, but I moved up to FTC this past season.So are they same? They can be, but you can also push yourself to do them consecutively.The answer is yes and no. FTC works differently then FLL. In FTC, a team can to more than one competition (season is announced in September same as FLL, but competitions run from mid Dec to late March), and teams can plan their season for when they register for their competitions. I'm a nut, so after this past FLL season, THEN my team began a FTC season, and in 1.5 months had a cool robot. We went to late competitions and were done by March. Teams can sign up for two competitions and can put themselves on a waiting list for more. If they have spots available at the other competitions, they will let you know about a week or less before the Saturday event.
