Here is a very mini reveal of 99999V’s (my team’s) previous robot.
It wasn’t the best robot, but it proves that traybots can be somewhat unique and can be improved from goofy.
It was different from a standard complex tray in that it had 8 bars instead of 2 bars.
This didn’t allow us to score the center tower, as we lost a good amount of height by keeping our intakes level, but we were able to score and descore towers from above, as well as tower swap when cubes were not fully nested in towers.
I mostly made this topic just to show that traybots can be developed farther than the basic complex tray, to give them a slight competitive edge.
This robot wasn’t that great, I’m sure others could build the same design but better, but it did lose finals twice, and in SoCal, that’s a pretty good achievement.
I had a much better idea, and so this robot is no longer intact, but I have more pictures and can answer any questions you may have.
