Am glad to see that my Day 1 idea was at least corroborated by someone else too. I take it you've had success with the lifts?

Disappointed we will not see you at the St. Louis regional this year.

Re: pic: FRC1675 - 2018 Power Up

What an awesome ramp design! May I inquire how the ramps work? Are they pneumatically lifted to get to the 11-12"?

Do you all expect to have issues with wcd bot's bumpers snowplowing into the ramp? Through some CAD analysis, we found any ramp angle larger than 16.5 degrees would interfere with any 2" clearance wcd bot's bumpers.

The ramp is designed to match the slope of the ramp up to the platform so theoretically any robot that can climb that ramp can climb ours.

The ramps lift to ~11 in. using pneumatics. Given the bumper zone requirements we should get a majority of legal robots counted as climbing.

This is probably my favorite ramp so far. Great Job!
