sorry if i didn’t do enough research, but i heard that the clean sweep game uses a different controller than what was used in the previous years, a different control system perhaps? is this new control system mandatory? can someone show me a link to this new control system?
also, can someone briefly describe what major changes were done to the essential components of vex? (i.e. i’ve also heard that you can use 2 batts this year)??
VEXnet is going to be required at World Championships and may be required at other events at the event organizers option. Check on RobotEvents.com to see if a particular event is “VEXnet only.” I know a lot of events are planning to be “VEXnet optional” but you really need to check on RobotEvents or contact the event partner to be sure.
The link you provided for the upgrade bundle is correct. It is solely dependent on the event organizers as to whether or not they wish to use xtals, VEXnet, or both. You can see the event organizer’s comm. choice on Robot Events under the event information.
I can’t provide any definite information for the VEXnet joysticks, but considering that they’re not out yet, and that the current rules don’t quite address them, I would guess no.
