ROBBE XTREME's Flying Minibot

During Match #44 in Philadelphia, Team 56's usually reliable minibot decided to take a flying leap off the pole. The amazing recovery resulted in a 80 to 80 tie.

Alright, I can officially say that I've seen everything. I really hope you told everyone at the event that this trick was a, "design feature". ;D. Incredible.

Re: ROBBE XTREME's Flying Minibot

That is really cool. That ranks up there with 27's last second hurdle at the detroit regional in '08 for the best final seconds of a FRC match.

I can't tell from the mechanism, but what made it drive along to the deployment arm to get to the pole the second time?

It looks more like it bounced off the deployed arm, rather than drove on it. So they probably have some really strong magnets on their minibot

Re: ROBBE XTREME's Flying Minibot

I'm fairly certain you have broken a few laws of physics there. Exactly how did you power your robot's infinite improbability drive with a 12-volt battery and connect it to the crio?

Dude, look a bit closer. See the Flux Capacitor on that thing?

It seems that 56 is using a ramp for their deployment and when the minibot fell down, the wheels must have fell straight back onto the ramp.

That is amazing but technically think it doesn't count. The host bot is not permitted to touch the Minibot after deployment ends.
