Best features to put on a tipping point robot

Ok, so this post is mainly going to be for the new people to get advice for features to put on a Vex Tipping Point robot. But also this column is for people who have more experience with building.

Um, I have to ask a question:

Is this thread really necessary?

I mean, there are threads talking about Tipping Point robots, and threads talking about ringles vs. mogos.

If it is necessary (or at least, worthy of existence), shouldn’t in be in #vrc-discussion:vrc-tipping-point-21-22 ?

To answer the original question, definitely a drivetrain. :blush:. I find a lift to be nice as well.

Brain, radio, battery, and motors are usually top picks.

I’d say wheels would be a good thing to add as well

Using pneumatics to change what a motor is powering could be useful in VRC, especially if you want a 6 motor drive

there was a team last year who held half their robot together with rubber bands, like little to no structural components, just rubber bands. the robot bounced when it moved.

Multiple, similar threads already exist.
