We were impressed with the whole build, but the access panel above the non-drive wheels that allows you to charge without much dis-assembly was a particular favourite.

I canceled my subscription ONLY because my team aged out this year. They are high schooler now and starting FRC. Your videos helped them a lot though, really helped them to think about how the code works.
Thanks and all the best!

The site contains a wealth of information for all levels of teams – beginner to advanced. I found myself going back constantly to watch and learn. All the videos are very well made, and extremely detailed.
Totally loved the 3-D build instructions as well. They made it very easy to figure out exactly how things were made. The only challenge is that it sometimes takes a lot of digging to find stuff. I would recommend enhancing the search functionality and grouping things systematically. – Anu J

About the Mindstorms EV3 Teachers Training
The best part was the teachers' part where you teach me how to teach students those new concepts. One does not get that every day.

Yes, fllcasts was helpful. I've moved on and am now coaching at the FRC level. I've recommended your site to the coaches who are taking over the FLL team that I coached for the last few years.

Me and my child have learnt a lot from FLLCasts. It was our Goto resource for several issues we had last year. Thank you and keep the great lessons coming. I am no more a coach and hence will not be using this subscription.
Ian B. August 2018
I’ve enjoyed your videos and very helpful information over the last 18 months (approx). My students have benefitted greatly from the expert suggestions and guidance (not to mention numerous plans and resources). I am now moving to another position and will not be in a role that requires access.
Again, thank you again for your excellent support and good luck in all you endeavours in the future.

Please take a look at the video. My son, 10, program it.
He laughed so hard when he saw the results that one program block finished two missions. He said that is the simplest program he ever made. So we learned the lesson that if the attachment is advanced, the program could be really really really simple.
BTW, instructions of the box robot and attachments have some minor mistakes.

I was told about this website by another team and they used it so well that eventually after learning all the ins and outs at FLL level they are now an FTC team.
My team also benefited from the videos and I will be definitely pushing it to the new teams. Though I haven’t used it in the recent few months, the one thing that could improve is the search function. We had been trying to learn gears and it took a few tries to find the right video.
Overall it’s a great resource and I hope you will continue to see more and more people use it. Thanks so much!!

My son aged out of the program and I'm not coaching anymore. Thank you for the past few years!
His team did very well!

As a complete novice who had been asked to help a group of girl guides compete in a tomorrows engineers ev3 competition in partnership with the Royal Air Force celebrating 100 years. I was recommended to look at the website for advice and had come across numerous intro videos on YouTube, initially I was a little sceptical at the sheer volume and detail included on the website but quickly realised how structured the content was so opted for plan a, a monthly subscription which allowed access to most of the sites functionality.
I guided the girls thru the preliminary stages and into the final at Birmingham Big Bang coming a very creditable 22 out of 44/teams, most of which comprised dedicated stem teachers and students 15 and 16 years old.
I have subsequently opted for a yearly subscription to allow me to help the girls progress to the fll league and develop further building and programming skills as this allows access to more structured courses which can be easily adapted to suit the needs of my team who are younger girls.
Many people have commented that it can at times be difficult to understand the commentators, I have not found 5his a problem and subtitles available to clarify. A short mention for Kiril on the tawk helpline who was courteous and efficient quickly resolving my enquiry.
Diane Maltby, December 2017
For years, I searched for some advanced training in programming EV3 robots. I looked all across the United States and could never find anything except training for beginner users. I thought I would just try and teach myself, but you know how that goes, it was really difficult to make the time and put in the effort. When I did give it a try, without any support I just became frustrated and confused.
I was so excited to receive an email from the folks that put together FLL casts and learn that they were offering an online advanced EV3 robotics training course. I found it a bit ironic that the class I had been looking for was coming from the other side of the world and was very grateful that Aleks was willing to get up in the middle of the night to teach the class.
The class was everything I had hoped for and more. It was challenging and demanding and pushed me beyond what I thought I could do. Through it all, I felt well-supported. By the end of the Training course, not only had I learned more than I expected, I'd made friends with other EV3 programmers in the states and one from Bulgaria.
Thank-you, Diane Maltby

- Hello, would you be able to comment on whether your AccurateTurnin block uses 1 or 2 Gyro sensors? Also, it would be great if you could post a video sometime that vies a high level description of this Block. I would like the kids to understand the sw they are using. thanks!
- hi Joe. thanks for the feedback - we are thinking of doing a video tutorial describing it we just need some time
- great. Keep up the great work, it's been an amazing resource for a rookie coach

Talking in the chat:
" - can I call you?"
" - Yes you can. This is our phone number..."
" - Hello Kiril. I am a software developer. This is my first time doing the FLL and helping students. Your tutorials really helped me get started and brought me up to speed."

Your site is great and we used it a lot last year when preparing for fll. This year, my kids are not interested in participating in fll. They've grown up.
Regarding improvements, it would be good to have different kinds of base robots. Last year, the base was too low to jump over one of the obstacles. So we improvised.
Sriniwas Gedella, September 2017
Your tutorials are great and have been very helpful last year when I was coaching my daughters team for FLL. This year, since I do not have time for coaching, another parent has taken over the coaching responsibilities. I have shared your info.
Mike A from NH, September 2017
I am no longer involved with FLL team, but I did learn a lot from and enjoyed your material. Good luck!.
Sou professor de matemática e robótica aqui no Brasil e gostaria de parabenizar toda a equipe que desenvolve esses vídeos e cursos e também ao pessoal do telemarketing que me atenderam super bem e são atenciosos e prestativos. Muito obrigado pela ajuda e conto com vocês durante esse tempo. Minha equipe de robótica Albatroid sem dúvida será muito bem auxiliada por verdadeiros profissionais e tenho certeza que nessa temporada da FLL teremos um resultado muito melhor com esse apoio. Parabéns a toda equipe.
Um grande abraco do Brasil a todos."
Good morning, dear ones.
I am a professor of mathematics and robotics here in Brazil and would like to congratulate all the team that develops these videos and courses and also to the telemarketers who have met me super well and are attentive and helpful. Thank you for the help and I am counting on you during this time. My Albatroid robotics team will undoubtedly be very well assisted by true professionals and I am sure that in this FLL season we will have a much better result with this support. Congratulations to the whole team.
A big hug from Brazil to everyone.
Really like the 3D ability to look at pieces from different angles as construction proceeds. Thanks for all the new additions and improvements.
I rely so much on your site as I proceed in my learning journey from basics to all aspects!

The teacher I work with was able to get things fixed. I was surprised that you guys launched another box robot, smaller version!! You’re killing me guys!! I built the big one this past weekend and love it. The outside mounted color sensor cable does interfere with rotational transfer gears so you might offer some remedy for this too. In all seriousness though, you guys have tremendous content and are an invaluable resource for us. Wish we had done this last year.
Shalini Suravarjjala, Oct 2016
I would like to register for the online intructor course. Timing is definitely a very big factor for me. If you can help me figure these out correctly, I will register right away.
You guys are awesome. You make things simpler to understand. Looking forward for reply.
Alex Rhinelander, Sep 2016
Thanks so much for your great site & resources. My FLL Team (Armbrae Dragonites, from Halifax, NS, CANADA) and I have learned a lot from your videos and discussions, and plan to continue our subscription.
One thing that would be extremely helpful to us is to be able to explore the code needed to solve a fairly complex mission from a past challenge. I am gaining an understanding of how better to program EV3, but I would really like to see how DR/sensor movement/attachment commands are fit together to make a successful whole.
