Is there a cool way to mount the nameplates? (If possible pictures please)
Our team has the blue plates screwed to the bot and use the Viq connectors when we are red alliance
If you want some easy way to flip your license plates during a match, check out this video from team 1116’s blog:
We take two long standoffs and screw them vertically off of some point on our robot. Then, take some quarter inch standoffs and screw your red and blue nameplates together (you should have two sets). Now, to switch your color, just slide the nameplates on and off of the the standoffs you screwed onto your robot.
To take it a step further, you can screw in a bearing flat on top of the standoffs you had put on your robot. After sliding the nameplates on, turn the bearing flat 90 degrees and it will lock the nameplates in place.
Hope this helps!
Velcro on the back of the plates makes it super easy to change out between matches
