Disclaimer: This FAQ is not an official FIRST document. It is an accumulation of knowledge derived from six thousand messages posted to the FLL forum over two seasons. It has been reviewed by numerous people, but may still contain errors. Use at your own risk.
Specifics for previous challenged (Arctic Impact, City Sights, Mission Mars, No Limits, Ocean Odyssey) have been excluded. This information is outdated and will only confuse rookie teams that are not familiar with the previous challenges.
An attempt has been made to update this document with the new rules for the 2006 season. As with such work, errors are bound to sneak in. Please report any such error and revisit often for the latest version.
Some questions are only appropriate for the RCX or the NXT. An attempt has been made to highlight this fact.
Attribution to questions and answers has not been given as it would needlessly clutter this document. Special thanks to the coaches that answered the lionís share of questions posed by rookie coaches. Notably: Jack Gregory, Dave Kolberg, Team BOB, Peter Vogel, Skye Sweeney, Mark Beitz, Marie Hopper, Courtney Goeltzenleuchter, Jackie Keith, Catlin Gabel, and Ken Streeter.
Special thanks to Steve Dakin for helping to automate these pages. He is responsible for the often requested "Printer friendly" page.
