Here is a video from the final match today at the Lambert Skyrise Invitational. We (team 5854B) were chosen by team 5278c along with our third alliance member from parkview high school 1356c. We competed against 3921B, 5278b, and 3921a who played great. Together our alliance went on to win the tournament.
Yes its in the “field assembly manual” on page 25. It clearly states: DO NOT use a #8-32 Screw to tighen clamping collars; they are used to loosely hold Skyrise Sections.
It’s written in ALL CAPS and BOLD in the manual. We plan on writing a new thread about this exact thing to warn other teams. I will find that earlier thread about this exact thing.
Congratulations on the tournament win though, would love a redo of the match where we found the screw in our autoloader only. ;)
They were very close matches with you and your alliance. We won the next match, then tied you in the tie breaker but the 10pts for autonomous(1 cube difference in autonomous) was the difference 61-51. I believe we played you to the wire closer than anyone else in the elimination rounds.
Great two designs there guys! Worked really well together. Glad to see GA is up and running well this year. Good luck guys keep posting those videos I love watching them even when I cant be there.
PS how did the 1961A and B team look?
