Would anyone in the Columbus, Ohio area be willing to loan me one Change-Up ball? I’m considering buying the kit to use with my 8th graders but I want to try out how the Change-Up balls interact with the standard Clawbot.
You can probably contact our coach from Ohio. Dm me for details. I can ask her.
The standard clawbot will not be able to pick up a change-up ball.
There’s something about the perspective that the video was shot in that makes it not look like a standard clawbot.
Edit: Although it should be possible to create a fully functional clawbot able to score at every opportunity with minimal modifications to standard design.
RoboCatz- is this a standard VEX V5 Claw?
Thanks, RNA. I’m not sure how to DM, but my email is [removed by mods]
Looks like the team modified it slightly to be longer as to facilitate picking up the Change Up balls. Honestly wouldn’t that bad of an idea to have your teams modify the clawbot’s claw to be able to pick them up (would be a good design challenge).
DM by clicking on their name then message. Bots will scrape your email if you post it open like this.
I believe new users aren’t able to send private messages right away, they need to reach a certain discourse trust level if I’m remembering correctly.
@csmelville, I changed your trust level, you should be able to DM now.
Thanks for this. Any luck?
