Need a minibot and deployment system for St Louis? Click Here!
On behalf of teams 303 and 293, I would like to formally announce our minibot collaboration project for the Championship in St. Louis. Team 303 graciously invited members of team 293 to bring themselves and the minibot and deployer to both the Philadelphia regional and St. Louis. In addition to offering up a minibot, we also have a deployment system ready to go. The only thing you would need to do is wiring it into your robot, and do the proper coding.
We have been working on making the mounting system for the deployment system as universal as possible. We are 99% sure that if you have one or more metal bars on your robot that will allow something about 2 feet tall to clear that is at least the height of the tower off of the ground we can mount it. it goes up the pole in about 2-3 seconds (we have never actually timed it). It has only missed deployment once in over 30 attempts.
Our goal is (schedules permitting) to get the deployment system and minibot on as many different robots as possible, no matter what division. in order for this to happen, we would really like to try and find some teams that are interested before the competition begins (in the interest of time). If you are interested in "hosting" our system, feel free to PM me, or post here.
