What kind of motors are you using? Continuous rotation servos? DC motors? Brushless?

How do you aim? Lazer pointer? Eyeballing it? Scope?

-EDIT- DISREGARD THIS. I thought it was Air Trajectory

Eyeballing it works fine for our team. We eyeballed last year and got a best score of 6634 in competition.

How are you guys planing on stoping your vehicle, I am planning on using an arduino as a timer to cut power to the motor.

I plan on letting the whole thing run on a Python script with a Raspberry Pi with a motor HAT, so a very similar idea that seems to be the general consensus.

Just curious, what made you choose Raspberry Pi over, say, and Arduino? From what I've heard, the latter is more common for robots and stuff.

Also, great to see someone from Madison Central on here!

What type of motor do you plan on using I planing on using a stepper motor.

I am just more familiar with the Pi and am more confident that I can set it up properly in time for our invitational next Friday. 2 of our other teams are planning on using Arduino boards, which is cool.

My coach gave me a Tamiya 72002 High Speed Gearbox kit that seems pretty ok

Does anyone know a website or book about how to program an arduino.
