    @Vyx I tried out this ratchet for my double catapult [attachment:5ba93799547ed]
    and oof, the plastic thingy got bent 90 degrees so I'll probably need to try new angles or find a metal replacement

    well..... guess we shouldn't underestimate the torque from the motor :P

    Yep, unfortunately we have been afflicted by this scenario as the copyright claimant has chosen to block the video rather than monetise it. We're working very hard at the moment to resolve the issue but if it doesn't turn out right we might have to go with a soundless video or find another song :((

    Hi, I’m new to the forum but have a few important questions. My team and I have almost figured out the two ball catapult, except for the ratchet. We have to change the motors to high strengths and build the rachet. If you could list the parts or maybe post some pics of the gear train at a different angle it would be greatly appreciated. Best of luck!

    They've already taken apart the robot and are hiding their current one because they plan to compete in China I think and don't want to lose the element of surprise

    this is the ratchet they used in the video (@meng any announcement on when that'll be put back up?) it's just a few responses up thors8rqv.jpg

  7. Totally unrelated but as I'm scrolling down I keep seeing

    and it's super gratifying. Thank you so much everybody!

    Also @meng why did your kids use 2 low strength gears instead of a high strength gear? Thanks!

    basically, the purpose of ratchet is just to stop the gear from turning back.
    There are many ways of doing that. My teams had even used just a simple piece of metal (angled at the correct direction) to just stop the gear from turning back.

    The pic attached above is the best close up shot that we have.

    there was a period when the high strength gears were not gripping or sitting nicely with the 12-tooth pinion.
    not sure if they have improved the quality, but we put 2 low strength gears together ever since then.

  10. Got it, thanks Meng!

    Hey Vexforum!
    The video has been updated with a new (and very original) song.
    Enjoy!

    you know it's a good song when you can tell what it is by the first three notes

    Amazing robots I was very impressed with the double catapult, this inspired our team to make one of our own (which we discovered to be quite difficult) Overall amazing job.
