Not at all what I was suspecting...

BEAUTIFUL nonetheless...as always...can't wait to see it in action...

Any elaboration//additional explanation?

That arm looks like it could kill someone, or do some SERIOUS damage

nice....I assume that the arm can orient bins and stack them pretty well. Now hopefully wildstang is gonna hold their end of the deal and post something tonight.

It's true this year. Autonomous mode will most likely decide a match. If your auto code works and you can get up the ramp fast, you can control bins. It looks like 47's arm is meant to swing from the start box into the stack without having to go up the ramp. That's probably the fastest device at a competition. If it does swing from the start, then I have to wonder what else it does during the match.

thats pretty cool if they can get about 4 or 5 stacks without moving in auto mode, but i was expecting a little more from them. something like what team 68 turned out to have this year to stop the match or something like what team 60 has to get every bin down and then hold them

Time will tell...

...our machine is somewhat simplier than in past years. We will see if simplier is enough or simplier is too simple.

Bottom line, we fit in the box, made weight and we do pretty much everything we planned on doing.

Time will tell if we planned on doing enough or if we can work in new plans as needed.

Regardless of how the tournaments pan out, I am pretty proud of our team based on both effort and output.

Let the games begin...

Did I miss 71's picture being posted? Raul's deal is "47 and 71 or no 111!"

An excellent machine as always, Team 47!

Finally a CD robot that doesn't try to do everything! The more simple it is, the more reliable.

Just one question, does it have a swerve drive?

I can't wait to see this robot in action.

Hehe... I bet I know what it does... but I won't tell. I will say I'm very interested to see CD8 in action. Your strategy looks very promising. It's one I thought up at kickoff, but didn't get to use. I can't wait to see you guys play!

seems that they will also be able to clear a scoring zone real easily, if they have omni wheels all they have to do is lay down the arm and drive sideways

Just a problem with a robot like that at the SCRRF sectional. Our alliance partner had a robot like that, but while swinging in the crowd it narrowly missed the commentator and was disabled for the rest of the match. If an arm is extending that far, it could definately be considered a safety hazard.

I don't think that Raul's deal will ever be met. 71 has never posted their robot in the past and I doubt they will this year. We don't even know if 71 knows we want them to because they have not responded in any way. Therefore if for some reason 111 would still be willing to post their pictures I am sure the rest of us would be appreciative.

By the way, like all other pervious CD bots CD8 looks great. Good job on following the best design advise ever, K.I.S.S
