Re: pic: Beach 'Bot 2007 View 1

Okay. I understand building a second robot... but why did you paint it and make bumpers for it?

...Unless that robot on the left isn't built for this year's game.

Looks great. I wish we could build two robots within the 6 weeks.

Thanks! It did take a lot of work....I still can't believe we actually finished both in six weeks.

The bumpers we stole from our 2006 robot so we could practice defending the real one without damaging it. The arm on the practice bot is a spare for the real one in case it breaks which is is why we painted it. (It is made of fiber glass.)

The practice bot was amazing at the scrimmage, I bet the real thing will be even better...

LA is looking amazing.

Here are a few videos of us dropping our ramps.

Hopefully we will also add some videos of us hanging some tubes too.

Did you find it difficult to stay in the end zone while doing your "spin-drop"?

Re: pic: Beach 'Bot 2007 View 1

Well, we had a 3/4 field set up and we had the home zone taped off and we were able to drop the ramps and stay in the home zone. We just had to make more subtle movements so that we did not cross the home zone line. But it really doesn't take much to get the ramps to fully extend.

Re: pic: Beach 'Bot 2007 View 1

After removing one ramp on Thursday to make weight, we made some slight mods and put it back on. Then we started deploying it in matches--only to have no robots climb until the semis. Then 254 and 4 started appearing on the corrugated plastic, and in one match, 254 somehow held onto one ramp at 4" off the ground. (We actually did get both up at once one time. That was amazing.)
