How do we switch between autonomous and RC mode? I've created a challenge for my students but they can only use the RC mode for a short period of time and most of the time will be spent in autonomous. I am hoping they can switch in and out whenever they like.

You can do this a couple of different ways, but I like to use multitasking to do it. Check out this forum post on multitasking:

You can write your manual joystick controls as one task, and your autonomous as a second task. Then use task main to simply start/stop the tasks as you wish. For example:

if (vexRT[Btn5U] == 1)
stopTask (joydrive);
startTask (autodrive);
if (vexRT[Btn6D] == 1)
stopTask (autodrive);
startTask (joydrive);

Put that into a while loop, and you'll be all set.

Good luck!
