Post FCS skipping steps in Autonomous mode
Hello all,
My team and I went to the West Super Regionals in California this past year. While we were there, when the FCS would run our autonomous mode, the FCS seamed to lag and would "skip" a step in our program. this means that when we had our robot move forward open the gripper then move backwards, it would move forwards then it would move backwards and skip opening the gripper. Is there a way we could prevent this from happening? I will include my code so that you can also look over that if you wanted to. After having this problem happen several times, I went around to other teams there and asked them if they had the same problem, and none of them said they did. If anyone could provide an explanation and or a fix I would be extremely grateful.

Thanks in advance,

I can guarantee you that the problem did not lie with the FCS. All the FCS does during autonomous is tell your robot "Go" at the start and then stop the program at the end. Looking at your code, it's quite ... large. I'm sure it's simply a bug that's hidden somewhere amongst all that code.
