Operational Suggestions

Pre-Solder the Electronics Where Possible

From our first and second workshop we determined that the kit of parts should be pre-soldered with connectors and pin headers where possible. Soldering is likely to be offputting to beginners (and eat a lot of time) and too basic for people with soldering experience. Pre-soldering battery connectors where relevant and adding DuPont connectors to motor inputs/ESC outputs allows robots to be quickly assembled and makes it very easy to reverse motors to get robots driving correctly.
