I think that is a pretty good bot not gonna lie but I’m concerned about the power of your fly, in some of your clips it seemed a little weak. Looks good though, I like the decals. Good luck.

Great video, especially the zoom near the start, but who would’ve guessed that Intel was a person and not the company!

I wouldn’t worry about that - @Scott_Shaw is well known for the quality of his craftsmanship and paying attention to the details, let alone something as important as the power of the flywheel.

What I would worry about is the amount of chain and other delicate internal mechanisms exposed on the sides of other 169 robots. If they are hit on the side with the ram similar to what 169A used at the signature events there could be more damage that they could reasonably fix in time for the next game.

It may be perfectly fine if their strategy is to never center park and instead deny opponents’ center parking points with their own rams. But I would still try to protect sides of their robots a bit more. They just seem so vulnerable.

As said above, the exposed chain is kind of concerning. However, I expect the applicable teams have already addressed this concern somehow in some way.

Obviously, the editing was excellent I’m excited to see you guys compete!

if in any instances the flywheel looked weak, blame me the videographer; the robots themselves are incredible

I notice y’all have a lot of exposed chain. Does that ever give you issues?

At least one of these will win a div or I will eat a sock.
