Re: pic: 179 Swampthing 2009

Actually, it never ran at the 179 Swamp-scrimmage. I think they are holding out on us. They have some secret out-of-the-mud strategy planned for Orlando. 179 and 1343 and 180 all have some surprises awaiting teams at Orlando! 1523 is ready!

Re: pic: 179 Swampthing 2009

I feel like the Florida Regional is going to be absolutely ridiculously competitive this year. Another fine robot from 179, even I'm still not 100% sure exactly how it works.

Re: pic: 179 Swampthing 2009

Well I have video of the practice bot, but I hope to get some of this one this morning before we stick her in the box. This one has a number of upgrades from the practice bot, but basically the same. I'll post one or the other tonight. It will have traction control crab drive, uses camera to score. The balls feed into the bottom of the basket and the basket is dumped by rolling up the strap on the top crossbar. In theory it could hold and score well over 35+ balls. Also the backboard shape makes it easy for the payload specialists to throw balls in the basket. It's a lot of fun to drive. She eats any ball in any condition. Also the real amazing thing here is that it weighs 100lbs.... So We're having trouble adding weight inconspicuously. I love the 1x1x1/16 alum box tube, we've never used it before.
