@JuiceBox I like the idea with the treads and flaps I’ve seen plenty of teams get entangled with rubber band rollers. Good luck with the rest of your season and I look forward to competitions with you guys!
Thank you, it was a great finals match at firestone, we can’t wait to compete with you guys again!
@Got a Screw Loose Really? I found just the opposite. But, as Zackjo knows, my intake is slightly different from a lot of the common functionality.
I really like the black/gray ambiance created by all of the antislip coupled with the flaps. Looks intimidating to set on the field, regardless of performance. (In that I don't have to know how good you are to be intimidated.)
Yes, we actually had a bit of a disagreement at first because I felt the same way you do, but my teammate went ahead with a prototype and totally proved me wrong. I’m looking forward to seeing your intake it sounds unique as well.
Also thanks we’re big fans as well, funnily enough most of the matting has a purpose too aside from looking cool/intimidating.
@The Electrobotz Great robot!! I love the unique intake. It gives the robot a look that I haven't yet seen all season and was long missed from NBN.
@Dromeda I only had one question regarding the robot, why have a 1:7 100rpm descore? It looks far slower than what I have seen on other robots that run 1:5 100rpm along with some 393 robots that have 1:5 HS.
Great question! We originally went with a much faster descorer that did the job nicely. We were encountering some tipping problems, and as we were fixing up our base we thought about making the arm strong enough to bring us back up just in case as well. It also provides multifunctionality as it can help us fight for the platforms.
