Hi, I’m new to VEX in general, and VEX IQ specifically. My son was using the IQ super kit at school, and I was looking around for a robotics kit that could be programmed in C or C++, and settled on VEX IQ. The day after I ordered it, the availability of VEX Code for IQ changed from “November” to “early 2000”. I haven’t done much with it yet, as I prefer to wait stick myself in the eye a hundred times rather than do anything interesting in Scratch/blocks.
But looking down the road… it looks like the brain has 32K of RAM. Is all of that available for our code? What do we lose in overhead, if anything?
Is there any chance there could be an upgrade option for the brain, to use one of the other TI TM4C processors? There are a lot of processors in that family. For example, there are 4 that have the same 512K flash capacity and 256K ram (but none with 256K flash, 256K ram).
The plug-n-play nature of the kit is so great… imagine what we could do with 8X the memory!
