Re: pic: The first documented quadruple balance

This was a fun night of practice 'bot balancin'. Thanks to the TechnoKats for their gracious hospitality, and to team 447 to help us all practice, even though they are not competing at the Championships.

In the picture, left to right: 234, 3940, 447, and 461.

Andy B.

1501 was there that day. Just not their robot (it's in St Louis at the moment).

Thank you to everyone who helped organize the robot play date. Good luck to everyone! Glad we could be part of the first 4-bot balance.

Re: pic: The first documented quadruple balance

How about 4 on 4 matches for championships? The quadruple balance could be worth 60?

Re: pic: The first documented quadruple balance

Very impressive balance. It almost seems to me that the robot on the left would need to be hanging off more to balance out the two on the right.
