V5 question for 2019-2020 competition


#1

Hi. I was wondering if for the new competition that will be released in April if having v5 is a requirement because I am hearing many different things.


#2

It will not. As v5 is not even available to order, it will be a while until it ships. Definitely not all teams by next season. Vex would not limit teams for not having an updated system as a result vex’s low supply for the extreme high demand of v5.


#3

Thank you very much although they will probably increase the amount of motors v5 are allowed to use which will put cortex based users at a disadvantage


#4

Is this for HS or VEXU? U banned Cortex this year except for a few exceptions I think. I wouldn’t expect them to repeal this next season. HS will probably stay the same as it was this year.


#5

Unlikely the number of V5 Motors will increase while Cortex is still in play. There were similar restrictions to keep a “level playing field” in many past games. The issue is cost to new teams compared to those around a while and have a big set of control systems.

I expect the 6+Pneumatics and 8 without for V5 motor limit to there next season.


#6

I don’t expect it necessarily, but I wish they would change to 7 motor+pneumatics for V5. I think that would be fair, and encourage the use of pneumatics.
