Thanks for posting this! Hopefully we can implement something similar to this.
@_Colossus_ @Jared2183 It's proprietary currently, and it is only available when you get a new V5 kit. That means you need to be extremely careful when you handle this wire. Make sure your design does not expose this wire to other robots that might collide with you. We also try to avoid unplugging and plugging the battery as much as possible since we do not want to wear the connectors down. With that being said, we only have one battery right now, so we just plug into the wall charger when our battery is low.
do you know if the v5 battery charger is proprietary? btw thanks for the tips about the battery cable, ill try my best to keep it safe
What plug does the v5 battery use? Is it proprietary, or is it a commonly used standard? Thanks
EDIT: Sorry if I was unclear, I was talking about the v5 battery charger
I would highly suggest using lexan instead of metal sheets, as lexan has a much more rigid structure and would be able to give the ball the best amount of compression.
@meng Think it is not fair to generalise your opinion based on one encounter with a certain type of design.
Eg. I would like to have my teams go against more flywheels before i make a decision.
Edit: for clarity...
My teams have not been outcycled by flywheels so far. But I would acknowledge that we have limited chances to play with more flywheels.
I am still allowing my teams to prototype and play with flywheels instead of writing off flywheels so soon.
Sorry if I made it seem like I was making a generalization; it was just something I thought I would like to point out.
Ok, so after going against a double catapult with a flywheel and outflagging the double catapult, i feel like the double catapult is more of a hit or miss sort of thing, where you can either hit both flags or miss both and get no points at all. Flywheel is much better in that aspect, as if you miss a ball you can account for that and hit the flag with the next ball. Furthermore, double catapult is a lot more affected by defense, as disrupting a double catapult would most likely cause them to miss both of their shots.
We currently run our flywheel with 2 v4 motors at a 25:1 gear ratio (high speed) and it works perfectly
Thank you guys for posting this!
How does the algorithm work?
