Unfortunately, I beleive that is an alternate energy sourse, and so wouldn't be allowed by <R1>

Of course, you could make them nonfunctional decorations :)

At Last! We have been looking for our mascots for weeks! It is good to know that they have a good home. Please return them when you are finished with them.

Did you ever consider having green mice on your Code Redteam would get your team confused with MOE?

This is from the part use flowchart under energy sources


Is the part an energy source (battery, gasoline, fuel cell, solar panel, gerbil etc.)?

Yes

No, it may not be used

:D

Isn't the hampster on the wrong side of the wheel? Shouldn't it be in the process of trying to climb? Or is the hampster just accelerating and an extremely high rate and using conservation of momentum to accelerate the wheel?

I'm confused.

True, but I think those are hamsters, so they would be OK. :rolleyes:

Hehe....it is going be a planetary system...right? drill opposing chip >>>low spd.... etc.... this type of sys couples 2 motor AND allows shift on the fly with no NONROTATIONAL movement!!!!
the mouse reperesents the planet arm/output .... :D :D

That is a BIG hint.could it be the circular spline in a harmonic drive (http://www.globaltec.thai.com/sub2/sub2c.htm)?

I'm guessing Mr. Lavery was responsible for adding "GERBIL" to the list of restricted power sources [in the flowchart] in Team Update #10 :) :)

You should easily be able to figure it out since you can see it on the picture of our robot posted earlier too.
