    Hello everyone,

    For this season I was thinking maybe a compact DR4B on one side with a claw taking up half the space and the other side taken by an NBN style Omni wheel shooter Seems like its called a Flywheel. (Sorry I only started robotics from itz)with an H shape chassi with V5 motors
    Motors:
    4 Chassi
    4 DR4B? They might be enough with 2 v5 Motors
    2 Shooter?
    1 Shooter adjusting? For Middle flag or High flag
    1 Claw

    EDIT: Just realized that only 8 motors are allowed... SO!:
    2 Chassi
    2 DR4B
    2 Shooter
    1 Shooter adjustment
    1 Claw
    Here

    I seriously have no idea if this will work or not but here.

    PS. Will V5 be availible on Robot C too still?

    Thanks,

    For the record, you're gonna be limited to 8 v5 motors should you choose to use them

    Thanks,

    v5 uses the VEX coding studio, RobotC isn't compatible

    When people don't read motor limits...

    @MayorMonty @Dromeda Oops! Seriously? V5 only 8 motors. I'm so dumb. Should read the V5 stuff then... Thank you still.

    @Easton So I have to learn how to use VCS then...

    If you make mechanisms that perform multiple tasks at once, you should be able to accomplish a 4 motor drive easily with V5.

    I would also like to say that the new system will probably be released later in the season, so I think we should continue with the V4 with 12 motors until we can actually get them hands-on.

    There was a quite a useful mechanism revealed last year actually, although used for a different application it's theoretically extremely useful for this years game to.

    Yeah but it shouldn't be too hard, it has block coding now

    @[TVA]Connor @9065_Parker What do you mean by multiple tasks at once? Do you mean one motor doing two things? Do you mean thislink text ?

    @Easton Yeah. But I feel better using Robot C. As @[TVA]Connor said, we should use V4 until mid season probably then.

    As in multiple mechanisms (like a rubber band roller and conveyer belt) that use the same motor or set of motors connected with gears or chain and sprockets.

    I mean one motor used for multiple subsystems.

    yeah kinda like that but more advanced

    v5 uses the VEX coding studio

    or PROS

    PROS is a pretty neat language to use. But I personally will use cortex this year and switch next season.

    How similar is c++ to robotc? or is it easier to just learn another programming language

    It's basically the same, but some of the commands are slightly different.

    motor[drive] = 127; becomes setMotor(drive,127);

    Stuff like that.
