That is an absolutely fabulous set of photos.

Makes me miss getting my hands dirty with FIRST.

Keep up the good work!

The work so far looks great.
I have one suggestion though. In several pictures that show someone working on the bot, safety glasses are not being worn. You can replace glasses but you can't easily replace eyes :ahh:

Good luck this year :)

How is your overpass holding up with just PVC? I imagine it to be real flimsy, we're probably using metal pipe.

I believe the students that constructed our overpass used PVC and placed a smaller diameter (cheaper) metal pipe inside to counter the sagging. That being said I haven't actually seen it assembled yet.

Yep...gotta where those safety glasses ALL THE TIME...

We made our overpass out of 1.5 inch pvc....it's ok as long as you don't make more than 2 "squares" where the ball rests.

we made ours from 1" EMT, it seems to droop about an inch in the center with a ball on it.

But the conduit was free!
