We won’t be releasing the full reveal video until the 21st since it isn’t done yet, but go ahead and ask questions and take a look at the pictures below. I will update this thread with the video link later on so stay tuned!
Vector VI is the latest iteration of our robot this season, we have experimented with punchers, double flywheels and single flywheels. This design was chosen for its accuracy, and versatility on the field. This robot can get around 4 balls per second in auto loads and 8 bps in the field, The robot also has a high lift, capable of lifting any robot with any weight. The lift can be done in 10 seconds. This robot has a high speed drive, and is capable of easily pushing other robots out of its path, it is also equipped with a PID control variant, capable of deadly accuracy and maximum fire rate. The intake is powered by turbo motors allowing for very high fire rate.
Yes we are helping lift it. The only work the climbing bot has to do is climb up the small incline to get up over the center of gravity. That distances is like 1.75 feet, the robot that climbed it is a 4 motor turbo drive.
Once they are over, we release the motors and let the elastics bring the platform level. No chance of tipping or getting thrown off.
Here’s a quick vid of our lift from a couple weeks ago. The single was not finished and this was the first time we deployed our lift so excuse the binding on the left side. We have since fixed the binding and have reduced how violently the thing shoots out so that we don’t end up shooting our alliance partners.
