Re: 2007's Best Robot Ramps

I'd have to say 1501's air-powered total lift was one of the best systems I've seen in action. Simple to get on, and keeps lifting even when the power is cut.
Super idea!

I noticed many robots having trouble with getting up the ramps and staying on...oops! Anyhow... driving onto a platform then lifting it with the bot(s) seems to be the best way to go.

Just my 2 cents worth.

Re: 2007's Best Robot Ramps

I would say that team 86's ramp is by far the best I have seen this year. Not only is it wide and 13 degrees but it has a pole sticking up at the end so that a robot does not overun the ramp. They have a fast and reliable way of lifting too.

I couldnt find any pics but heres a link to one of our elimination matches in Florida there is a clear shot of them lifting 1270 and 1251 for 60 points

(CLICK ON fl_qf2m2.wmv) http://www.soap.circuitrunners.com/2007/movies/fl/

180 and 69 have good ramps too.

Re: 2007's Best Robot Ramps

Pacific NorthWest regional:

Xbot and 997
997 was teh champ and both Xbot's and 997's robots had two large platforms that would lift robots. Very reliable.

Re: 2007's Best Robot Ramps

I wish I had a picture of 548's ramp. They were awesome and we were soooo psyched that they were available for us to pick at Great Lakes. (548, this would be a great time to send me a picture of your ramps to post....)

Here is a video of the "Buzzer" lift. I messed up my video..it's actually match 27, not match 38...er well you get the point I hope.

Re: 2007's Best Robot Ramps

Let me second and say that Kell's (1311) ramp was amazing, definitely one of the best at peachtree. We were with them in our last qualifying match and it was the easiest ramp I had to drive up.
