Do you think this robot could get my team to state?

I think this robot would be good enough to get to state, but what are your thoughts?

There’s a good chance it might

It really depends on the region that you are tying to qualifying in. The last form of the design looks to be fairly efficient and fast So I would say that in most average to semi-competitive regions qualifying at an early event is well within reach.

It’s a solid design for sure! But, like @Cadaver_42 said, it really depends on the region you’re trying to qualify in. Remember that attending more tournaments can only help you to qualify for state.

As for the actual design, even the third generation looks like it could be improved. For example, the robot has to pick up risers from a certain angle to latch onto them. Also, going from one riser to two looks sketchy, since the robot has to leave them in place, and return to pick them up.

I completely agree with everyone here. The robot looks great and will do great at competitions. But since we don’t really know the region you compete in, so it is hard to gauge the competitiveness of your robot compared to others in your region. But from watching the video I can agree with this point that

Good Luck!

Building off of this. This could be a good skills bot with a proper route and some practice with picking up the second riser. To me auto alignment system, fast drive, and the grasping claw all scream skills to me.

Im in Indiana its honestly not that competitive in my opinion… We should’ve won in past years but we always mess up somehow

Or not won but get to state

This design works better and you don’t necessarily have to pick it up at an exact angle.

It isn’t necessarily bad, although I agree it isn’t the optimal design. https://youtu.be/by8G08pjXjs

Oh ok thanks! For the advice

Personally for me I would never think that. Because you always are trying to find ways to improve that robot or the next robot you will build. Especially sense this is so early in the season.

Never said it was a bad thing I just think that alot of time can be cut from that run which would allow you to score the other 1/3 of the field.

But i Highly suggest having a much more competitive and capable robot because it will take loads more practice if you start later in the year on the new design and have to readapt to the new robot. And a more complicated well documented design will impress judges more meaning you could take 1rst place, Excellence/design and skills with a better more thought out design.

Im not really the driver on the team im just mediocre but the other 3 members of my team are really good. The only thing they need to work on is to slow down because they try to rush and they always screw up. Example, last season we lost in finals bc they tried to rush the high green.

True. Our B team did the same they were leading the competition by 30 points avg but lost by 45 because they rushed. But still i think you should work on a more complicated desighn so that your drivers have more practice with a robot that they will be using throught all levels of competition. and by having more practice with a certain desgh they will be more calm.
