Tech Tip of the Week 

Did you know that it is possible for the Driver Station to automatically load your Driver Controlled OpMode as soon as your Autonomous OpMode has completed? Lots of teams go into panic mode immediately after Autonomous has completed - they’re trying to navigate and select the proper Driver Controlled OpMode, Initialize, and Run the OpMode while also picking up their gamepads and preparing to drive. Skip all that panic and confusion and let the Driver Station queue up your Driver Controlled OpMode for you! This week’s Tech Tip of the Week focuses on how to designate a Driver-Controlled OpMode that is to be loaded once an Autonomous OpMode has completed. You still have to initialize and run the OpMode at the proper time, but at least the Driver Station can do the heavy lifting of swapping and loading the OpMode for you!
