We are a new FTC team and so far, the only robot parts we purchased are the ones that came with the base FTC kit. It looks like we will need many more componenets in order to have a competitive robot with spare parts. I was looking for a detailed part list for the Tetrix Lego Education Base Set and the Tetrix Resource Set but I could not find them. Does anyone know where to find an official parts list? I made an approximate parts list by itemizing the parts shown in the pictures of the sets. I created an Excel spreadsheet with the parts list from each set along with the unit price for the items purchased individually. If I did this correctly, The base kit that sells for $ 625.00 would cost $ 1039.20 for parts purchased individually. The resource kit that sells for $199.00 would cost $ 518.00 for parts purchased individually. So these sets are a great deal even if you only need about half the items in them. The second part of my question is what should be on a new Team's wish list of parts? My current wish list, in addition to the initial FTC base kit, includes:
(1) additional Tetrix Lego Education Base Set
(1) Tetrix Resource Set
(1) Tetrix DC Motor Bulk Pack
(1) Tetrix Servo Motor Bulk Pack
(4) 4-inch wheels
(2) sets of 4-inch omni wheels
Does anyone have any other suggestions for "must have" items?
I have attached a pdf version of my Excel file with the parts lists.
