Extending Intake Part

I understand, but we do not have room for more weight.

I think we have found something that will work for us.

Thanks all :stuck_out_tongue:

I would suggest just working on this on your own. I don’t really see a reason to bring the whole community into this, especially when some people hate giving away designs. There would be no unique bot if people asked about all this stuff.

You guys are smart, I think you could come up with a great design on your own! :slight_smile:

Good luck!

weight does not necessarily take up space.

I mean that we don’t need any more weight. We have enough already.

on ours we use four linear slides and surgical tubing and this system works perfect as the game objects stack the slides slide up and gravity brings them back down when the objects get scored. This system holds 6 objects easily and were planning on making it bigger for worlds

Team 1064A would probably disagree with you guys attributing that to 3018 :wink:

I was just saying tha 3018 had it.

I didnt say they came up with it.

Team 575 had DUAL rotating flag holders back in 2008-9: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x8oneKWV8AY (love the commentary in this video, too, especially, “as long as they remember to plug their battery in they are going to be in good shape”).

Fair enough! Thats always good advice, helps me when matches!

lol! Yes, batteries are an essential part of this complete Vexfast. :slight_smile:
Flag spinners are awesome, except when they get in the way of expanding intakes, which is why we eventually took ours off last year.

Our expanding intake was made by putting two plates together in the form of a cross, attaching axle’s so they slid up and down, and adding latex tubing to snap the top back in place, as seen here: http://youtu.be/xR-rBniAQOo?t=2m42s
