Re: 2007's Best Robot Ramps

Team 86. By far one of the easiest ramps to climb at UCF and can always be relied on to get two robots 14inches off the ground in a quick and efficient manner.

Re: 2007's Best Robot Ramps

2274 has the most innovative ramp I've seen by far this season. They're a rookie team from New York and they had a little "mousie," as their mentor described to me--a little mini robot embedded in the belly of their drivetrain--drive out and push out their ramp, then drive back, leaving the ramp to sit squarely on the ground. I'll try to post a picture if I find one, but this great design helped them beat us in the finals round and win the New York regional. Definitely a great design, especially for a first-year team.

Re: 2007's Best Robot Ramps

Someone from 1359 mentioned us earlier, thanks guys,
both team 488 xbot and us had lifters that worked reliably in portland

notice this is NO ramp, this is a lifter, ramps were steep and sometimes impossible for robots to climb, this solves that problem

I second a vote for 2274. Their ramp was amazing, and the "mouse" worked really well. Their ramp sat enough above the 12" mark, that it wasn't ever a close call either.

Re: 2007's Best Robot Ramps

1816's already been mentioned a couple times, but I can't disagree-- they're by far my favorite robot. I can't wait to see them go into action again down in Atlanta.

Also up in Wisconsin, 93's lifters were pretty awesome, and 2202's ramp was solid and easy to climb.

Re: 2007's Best Robot Ramps

Even though they don't have a ramp, I think that team 316 (LunaTecs) Has a great forklift. I personally haven't seen any better. (That's just my opinion)

Re: 2007's Best Robot Ramps

More lifting...
1717 lifted 18 Robots (28 including ourself), 15", in 10 qualifying matches. The only two we didn't lift were disabled and couldn't even drive, let alone get lifted.

We lifted another 10 robots in the quarters, semis, and finals.
330, 696, and 835 (1216) played awesome defense for two rounds and prevented our teammates from getting lifted in the last two matches of the finals. Congratulations on your win!

technically, the lifting robot is still touching the ground, and therefore has not been lifted

that's why my team was hoping to find a jedi for our drive team. 90 bonus points every match would be awesome

Re: 2007's Best Robot Ramps

Technichalities aside...

Ya, we know that... but we still lift at least 120 pounds of our own robot (the gas springs themselves are relatively insignificant weight-wise) which is reason to be stoked... as for that Jedi hunt, lemme know if you find one, might come in handy... Who knows
