This week’s lab checkpoint is simple, so you can devote more effort to the project proposal.

Checkoff requirements

  • Old cars: Strip the car down to its chassis

    • Save any useful components (including but not limited to: heatsinks, ICs, switches, wood and plastic)

    • Remove and return the servo and battery pack

    • Remove and return all electronic assemblies (circuit boards, magnetic sensors, and the like). These will be kept in the lab as a reference for all teams.

  • New cars: Build the car chassis

Note After returning the expensive racing servos, a less expensive servo will be provided for Checkpoint 3.
