15 cones is the highest stack possible on an internal mogo.
6 on an external mogo (before it tips over from the release)
7 cones on stationary.
Ridiculously elevated base.
4" omni drive
30 hole long chassis, 35 hole wide.
Feel free to ask questions, give feedback, the whole lot. srsly we need feedback (welcome to the life of a first-year team with literally 0 experience).
This is really good for a first year team. There is a lot of swaying in the lift, which is probably the biggest issue with your robot.
Some tips on your lift:
-Your lift mount has a bunch of unnecessary moving parts
-Some more bracing is needed
-Take off rubberbands on your robot overnight, so you don’t bend the metal
-Make sure you are using screw joints as much as possible.
-Make sure the bars on the top and bottom of the DR4B are parallel.
You are correct. The entire bottom of the robot is steel (chassis rails, 5 wide, mogo intake). We didn’t have the budget to buy aluminum for the base (which is why we ended up with a 25 hole long robot) and now we have antitips. Will work on lightening it (if we make it to state).
Thanks! We’ll try our best, although a lot of the teams in Ontario have been to worlds before so I don’t know how strong we would be (as a just-started team). We’ll try our best - driver practice every spare moment from now on, fine tuning will occur once we have a bit of driver feedback.
