Topic: Arduino Robots :: Butterfly error? (Read 734 times) previous topic - next topic


Hello everybody!  Hey, I am a science and technology teacher and I used some grant money to buy 8 arduino robots.  They were working pretty good at first and then an error started coming up.  It has stalled and frustrated everyone who has encountered it.  I am afraid my whole robotics club will dissolve if I can't find the solution:

We try to upload a new script and it takes longer than the 6 or 7 seconds that it should...takes a really long 1-2 minutes to finally come up with a long error "Maybe it's not a butterfly?" 

I tried to copy and paste the entire error message here, but the program won't let me.  So, I took a screen shot and uploaded it here:


Man, trying to solve this is killing me.  It's eating up hours of time.  I've only found a couple of posts that sound like what's happening to my robots.  Some people have said I need to hit the reset just before uploading...some say just after...some say twice.  The problem is there doesn't seem to be a consistent solution and it keep recurring. 

Anyone have any idea?


The below tells how to post code and such. Do you have a link to the robots you purchased? I've never heard of the "Maybe it's not a butterfly?" error.
