FRC Rookie Basic Startup Kit

Looking to start an FIRST Robotics Competition team, or want to have a good start on the robot for your rookie team? This is the kit for you! It combines many of the basics to get you going, with a drive chassis, electronics for the robot, and some extras to get you on your way to building. You'll receive some of these items again in the Kit of Parts, but many of the tools and parts will be useful in your rookie build. (Of course, we highly encourage you to read the manual to ensure your in-season build remains legal.)

Having a few extra helpful tools and parts can make the robot building experience even better. We've put together a kit that provides additional items that enhance your robot and building ability, am-3051.
