It’s a rather standard dumper that has no intake other than pushing against the wall, but has a 6 motor holonomic drive that lets them go almost ridiculously fast. Admittedly, they can score orange balls quite well in driver skills. But they can’t get balls in the corners very well or if they are right next to the triangles. And they have absolutely no way of stopping a team from locking up green balls and dumping out the orange balls, added to the fact that they can’t actually dump over all of their orange balls if some get stuck in the corner.
They’re definitely good, its just that they’re honestly not as terrifying as they seem once put into a real match, as is most of the high capacity dumpers that dominate in robot skills.
5 motors dedicated to the arm!
that is one POWERFUL arm you got there
we dedicate our motors to the drive
and btw is it driven by one driver or two?
im guessing one
and if i see you at worlds, ill tell you a “secret” that can gain at least 5 more secs if you are a pro driver
Yeah it’s a very powerful arm, my mentor knows that better than anyone else(The robot broke the the first of Issac Asimov’s laws, he was the victim.).
It’s only driven by one driver, can’t wait to know the “secret”!
Or it just might be a coincidence, especially we’re talking about 44 (5 tournament wins, 56-3-0 this season). As an outsider, I could tell they were close to scoring in the 18" goals with their January design - I’m sure their students realized it some time before.
well it wasn’t a coincidence because we pulled a score green ball dump out strategy in the new England competition a little while ago. the first match of the semi finals our battery fell out and we couldn’t really move then we won our second match but in the last round our battery was dieing or something in a u unexplainable way and lost by 10 points, more or less they realized that only being able to score foot balls was a weakness for green ball dump out strategies.
