This isn't the EXACT finished robot. We actually tweaked the manipulator on top to give it a longer hook.

I apologize ahead of time for any kinks you may experience in your neck while trying to view it lol.

Re: pic: 1474 Final Robot

and we thought that scissor designs wouldnt work this season. we thought the lateral forces would bend the scissor sideways and cause the whole lifting platform to tilt. niiice. update me on how it goes!

Yeah, we thought the same thing. Does it tip over any at all?

Re: pic: 1474 Final Robot

Well, in the picture, the lift is extend to just about maximum height. We can drive at this hight with a terta, but we do experience some side to side wobble, however, it is only the top 3 or 4 feet that move. When it does wobble, its not that much, and it rights itself pretty quickly. We plan on driving with the lift extended to about 7 feet, and extending it to around 10 when we need to cap, as it only takes about 1.5 seconds to go from 7 to 10.
