OK. It works now!
By way of background, I have been coaching FLL & Jr FLL teams for the past 7 years and wanted to introduce python programming using EV3 & Mindstorm models in my STEM enrichment center & found your product. I was planning on buying at least a dozen or so of these kits.
I bought this one trial kit because i want the thing to run out of the box thinking that if i bought the kit it would have your SD card with uptodate software etc. However my whole experience has been otherwise and i have lost 4 -5 days in this process. Would it not be better to send updated software in the kit? Or if this is not possible would it not be good to send some instructions on how to update the software before beginning the project? Also nowhere on your website does it say that the shooter will not work with the Brickpi3 - if i had known i would have bout the older version maybe.
I had to do a lot of guessing and your handholding to get to this stage. Please advise what Projects are possible with brickpi and what projects are possible with the older versions so that I can plan to buy the right stuff.
