Do you find it impossible to work with vex without the programmer? Would you rather get more vex and then program it or do you never want to get the programmer…ect,ect…:confused:

I ordered the programer today.

I have EasyC Pro but I do not have the orange “programmer”… I want one though.

i find the programming kit as useful as a human brain to ones’ self. my robots would not function without it.:slight_smile:

i do want to get EasyC pro though…

Even if it is difficult to work with, if you look at the top of your page there is a code bank.

This solves problems with programming difficulty, but exploring your own code is often more educational.

I think that vex could have gone a better direction with the programming system personally. Microchip has PIC chips with built in USB. It would have been a simple thing to use one of those as the master controller chip then the programmer hardware would be nothing more than a USB cable. This would have cut the price of the programmer kit by about 30 dollars and not raised the hardware cost of the VEX controller itself by more than a couple of dollars at most.
