Vexed.

Howdy, EzDudes 'n Dudettes... So, I've been looking in to getting some VEX robotics stuff - specifically the hardware as opposed to the electronics, due mainly to their proprietary shafting (LoL). So, in short, has anyone had any experience with VEX stuff? Cheers M'dears! - Bill.

As a result of this difference,...

Another 'Power' Thread.
