Team Bext of the VEX 22283A's Educational Video... This year's VEX EDR challenge, Starstruck, has a need of using some sort of lift to get stars and cubes to the other side of a fence. Team 22283A belives that controlling lifts is quite hard especially during autonomous, because gears sometimes doesn't have enough torque to make a lift stay at a certain position. Hence, our programmers developed a program template which would allow viewers to copy/paste our code to make an easy autonomous arm control. We hope to help new teams, like ourselves, do well in competitions during the 2016-17 season.

A VEX Tutorial Video made by Chattahoochee High School's VEX Robotics Team. This videos provides instructions and a template for controlling a VEX Lift to run and stay at a current position. Prior knowledge to potentiometers would be useful, since finding potentiometer points is key to using this program. Hope you enjoy.
