Let's Make Robots!

FIRST Ultimate Accent robot

 

 

I am posting this on behalf of FIRST team 4611.  We're done, and you can see the challenge and the robot above.  The contest will be over spring break.  It can't climb, but it shoots reliably, and as a first year team we are thrilled. 

 

We won the All Star Rookie and Highest Seed Rookie awards!!  

 

Unfortunately, we had trouble loading the frisbees in the first few matches.  We made a new loading ramp mid-competition that worked well, but our ranking was still low and we didn't get into the finals.

It it just me or were all the frisbees chewed up.

all the bots had wheels spinning at high rpm to launch the frisbees, so by the end if it they were pretty srcatched and melted 

Did that affect anything like feeding or launching

the damage was mostly superficial 

Your lucky, our robot couldn't launch the warped frisbees they had. If I post our teams robot tomorrow i will point out were they got stuck.

Congrats. Well, not the first price but everybody has to start somewhere and you guys did a great job.

What regional you guys going to and Good Luck 

Thanks for the good wishes, Good luck to you guys as well!
