Team 1816 Kicker Video

Here is a video of our kicker prototype: http://vimeo.com/8856035
We probably won't be kicking that far in competition but who knows, we can easily tone it down. It's powered by surgical tubing. Thoughts and comments appreciated!

Re: Team 1816 Kicker Video

Holy ****! That is insane! That must be turned down, unless you want to be slammed with penalties for hitting people in the control stations .

I am, however curious, as to how you release your surgical tubing, and make it ready to fire for a second time?

Re: Team 1816 Kicker Video

How are you using the surgical tube? Are you using a sling shot method?

We will be pulling it back with a winch, but we haven't finalized the plans on it. It's only a prototype, but we'll be using some of the parts on the actual robot. Here is a picture:

Don't worry the final design will look a lot nicer and will probably have some sort of safety mechanism, this was just made with parts found in our workshop.
