Thank you Team 1756 for the assist and Team 4028 for being so trusting. We couldn't have done it without you.
No really, we couldn't have

Re: FIRST Team 1501's worlds first three robot stack

That is truly a splendid thing. Did 1756 go up first, and is there a place where we might see video?

Re: FIRST Team 1501's worlds first three robot stack

I'm pretty sure that's our teams bumper sticking up in the bottom of the picture. We tipped two of our alliance's robots over (including our own) by trying to triple balance. We'll have to work on that for Milwaukee. Congratulations guys on winning Boilermaker!

Re: FIRST Team 1501's worlds first three robot stack

The sequence of events;
1) Team 1756 goes on to the bridge first followed closely by Team 4028. We continue shooting and scoring
2) The two on the bridge tip the bridge away from us.
3) We pull under the lip of the bridge while they tip the bridge back on top of our Fantail.
4) Team 4028 drives onto our Flight Deck.
5) We back away with 4028 on top of us. We only loose contact with the bridge once.
6) Team 1756 tips the bridge towards us and we climb on behind them. All the time 4028 is driving toward our tower to keep them in place in case we over balance the bridge.
7) BALANCE 3!!!

Re: FIRST Team 1501's worlds first three robot stack

Doesn't the G30-1 rule have an issue with this sequence? It's the "lose contact once" part that might be problematic. Another rule added after kickoff...

[G30-1]

A Robot may only be supported (fully or partially) by another Robot if one of the Robots is in contact with a Bridge.

Violation: Technical Foul for extended, strategic, or repeated loss of contact.

Re: FIRST Team 1501's worlds first three robot stack

Great work 1501! We were watching the elimination rounds while building our new bridge device. Couldn't believe you actually got the 3 robots on like that We saw you on the practice field in Smoky Mountains balancing but it never happened on the field unfortunately .

Great too see the potential from these Landing Pad robots. You were the one alliance i was scared of in Smoky Mountains. Great to see you came out with a victory though

Re: FIRST Team 1501's worlds first three robot stack

The head refs were told that momentary loss of contact with the bridge was consistent with the spirit of the rule and was OK.

1756 pushed the bridge down with 4028 following them up. Both would tip the bridge down towards the alley, where we would then place our "flight deck" under the lip of bridge so that once the bridge would tip down towards us, we would catch the bridge and keep it level. 4028 would then navigate it's way onto our "flight deck." We then balance with 1756.


However, this is only one strategy. We have done one other, and have plentiful of more stacking plans.

GDC said "Repeated lose of contact". If you loose contact only once, then it's not Repeated.

Wayne,

Is there any way you can send me a link of that picture of our three robots balancing? No one got a good picture of it from our school, but we'd really like to show it off.

We also need to find a video of us getting up on there. That was so awesome
