how many of u actually used the stacker if u had one?

just wondering how many used it...we had a really reliable stacker but ended up just using it as a pusher because we never got a chance to stack boxes...

MVRT 115 can build stacks but we have stolen stacks of 3 from the opponent and scored 3 mp in our zone. We also stole in the finals at SVR

We use our stacker quiet regularly...

Knocking over other peoples stacks is pretty simple. We can usualy knock them over in autonomous...

Stacking will become more important as time goes on i think...

We have made a stack of everything up to 4. We didn't stack much at Philly because it seemed that our opponents were not able to knock over our human player stacks. Either way, I am hoping to make a stack of 7 at nationls to beat any previous record. Good luck to stackers and everone else.

We had a really good stacking mechanism as wel, and we even created stabalizers to keep the boxes perpendicular to the ground always, but we never used it to stack, there wasn't enough time.

We used our stacker in every round we were in. We did one stack of 6, a couple of 5, and the rest were stacks of 4. We did steal a stack of 4 from our opponent and successfully placed it in our zone. We have an internal stacker so we would wait for the last few seconds to drop our stack, usually we did have to give up KOH. We had the second high score at the BAE Regional of 225 QP.

Going into this competition our team realized that stacking would be a dangerous affair, yet we also felt that having the ability to do so was important. With that in mind, we designed our robot with, as we like to put it, "primitive stacking capabilities". With that in mind, I am very happy with our stacking performance. We have stacked 2-3 high several times.

stacks

we had a stacker
we in practice could stack 7 boxs on top of an 8th box
but during the competition we just didn't have enough time
so we just used our (polycarbon) arms and just slaped boxes around

We used our stacker, but certainly not to the same extent as some of the others. I was really impressed with the rookie team 1114's stacker. It was phenomenal. I heard they got a stack of 8 (I would have seen it, but I'm the driver).

We had a stacker module that could be attached instead of our plow, and it could stack and protect 7, but after seeing how it was easier just to push bins around and head for the ramp we hardly used it.

In Chesapeake we were a stacker but couldn't protect stacks so we ended up being one of the strongest bots... (CRT was stronger, that was basically it).

For a vid of that, www.orbitreview.com/~temp/639movies/639_d.wmv

However, we spent all day practice day in Canada building a frame and removing system components to protect bins.

Once we did that, we could protect the human player stack of 4 perfectly and didn't really need to stack, though we were stack guys.
