One of the things that I think could be a really good system if it works right is the wireless download system. I try to use it but it never seems to work. It keeps giving me a message that it cannot establish a link to the cortex. Any advice?
I am not entirely sure what your are refering to? Are your trying to install code to the cortex using the joystick?
Works for us (over half of the time, lol).
You get 276-2186 to connect the joystick to the computer’s USB port.
You get your joystick paired to the cortex over a pair of vexnet keys.
Then, in RobotC, verify you “Robot->Vex Cortex Communication Mode” is set to “VEXnet or USB”.
RobotC should then happily upload your code…
