It is the time of the season where Masuk Robotics (4478A-Z/8878A-G) hosts our home event! So far, we have competed in two competitions this season. We decided to make a reveal video highlighting our two high school worlds teams from last year

Are you guys using the vision sensor for flag targeting? If so that’s super cool! Also the cap descorer is probably one of the best I’ve seen, especially for how simple it is. Love the robots, video was awesome too. Good luck this season!
Sort of! We can use it to line ourselves up if we wish to, and we use that sometimes. We tried to work in distance sensing and a bunch of trig to automatically set our rpm, but we have put that on hold because the vex::vision::object.angle command wasn’t working for us.
The two robots are very similar. The only big difference I can see is that X has a descorer.
Am I missing more here? Are the robots built differently? Still, really cool bots!
I notice your flywheel is geared 15:1. I have the opportunity to make my intake that ratio. I’ve been slowing it down with a 1:3 outside of the box. Don’t want to derail the thread. It’ll all have video and stuff whenever I eventually get around to doing a reveal.
What’s the rubber piece that lets the standoff on the cap descorer move? Did you just pull a piece of surgical tubing through and tie it off?
Yes we use a rubber link to connect the two standoffs. We are planning on switching our flywheel to a 5:1 with a 600rpm motor, however we didn’t want to messs with our flywheel right before the competition.
