    Uses
  • General
    * Great for testing prototypes!
    * Excellent for finding good motor speeds and servo positions before programming them into your code
    * Provides a reliable way to test if a motor or servo controller is broken - if the HTC_Tester cannot detect it, it is permanently or temporarily broken
    * Provides a reliable way to test if a motor or servo itself is broken
  • During A Tournament
    * Use it before a match to determine if the battery is low enough to replace, if motors are dead, if controllers are dead, etc.
    * Perfect for reseting part of your robot! - For example, a lift powered by a motor or a servo used to control a deadbolt

I have a Q for you, are you keeping the drivers from the suite in line with what I have on the master Github repo? If not, it would be good to make a note of this on your Github repo in a README.md file in the root.
