Thanks for all the replies and questions. Sorry it took a few days to reply, most of the team is working full time so our time is limited.
@Clown : We saw the challenge as a cross between In The Zone and Turning Point, so we blended elements from both of them. The loop/donut/pringle things were the toughest part. We spent hours (which is an eternity in a 3 day build) trying to create the best way to collect and control them. In the eleventh hour we came up with a way, tried it out and had ESD on the intake so we didn’t get great footage of it working. But we might release a blooper video of them. The plan was to be able to pick up and collect in front of an onboard mogo and score the loop/donut/pringle without excess movement, but our metal was all too short for the proper implementation.
@Xenon27 *These mogos are massive, and our mockups are only the basic shape and overweight. At points they were almost 7 pounds during testing, that’s why the last version was swiss cheesed to get down to under 4 pounds. The width of approx 13" fitting into a 15" robot is tight. Somehow, we didn’t see that there wasn’t a limit on mogo possession. We probably would have had a dual mogo bot if we did.
