    Rov regional 

    Today was the rov regional. I was amazed that we were able to get first place. (Good job everyone) we have a lot more work to get through before the international competion in Hawaii.
    We are wanting to rebuild the whole robot before we end up going. Hopefully this next time we can have a better control system to show off. I am really hoping to get the victors to be able to get fine motor cotrol. But I am not sure how well running the motors at half power on the rov will work. As the system seemed to lack a good deal of responseness when working with the switches.

    Feeling a little better about rov 

    I am now (11 pm) leaving Laurns house as we are done for the night with rov. I feel a littler better about the state of the rob as we were able to drive it around today. This was the first time that we have tested in a pool with the control system and not a moment too late with the robotics competition this Saturday.
    We are going to need to spend a lot more time working on it as now.
    I think one thing to remember is that we blew a 20 amp fuse at 12 volts and used aluminum foil to be able to run the system but it worked
