For single teams we do Super Kit and 4 omni wheels and an extra motor.
Every three teams in a “POD” we add the Foundation add on kit.
On the fourth team in a “POD” we add the Competition kit.
So Super-omni-motor, Super-omni-motor, Super-omni-motor, Foundation,Super-omni-motor Competition. Lather rinse repeat until you get to 20 teams. Then break the POD into two, add the fields and elements and repeat until world domination happens.
I’ve mapped this out to FLL, the big difference is that RECF is only $125 for the registration, then $100. We run our events as shared things, so all teams that hold an event can come to three if you don’t hold one then you can only come to one for free. (We have LOTS of events because of this) FLL events cost $200+ to go to.
And has @kmmohn pointed out the initial start up is more for the raw parts.
Since I hate the STEM Project (with an unbridled passion that startles my fellow STEM colleagues) there isn’t a reason for me to sign up for FLL. (And no, it does not come from Michael Mears taking first place away from me in the 9th grade Science Fair).
I do like that there is more programming, and maybe this years “Stay home and Program” year with VEX-VR will fix that some.
As always YMMV.
