# of limbo machines?

I have been talking with members of my team and other teams and often the question of how many teams will be able to go under the bar under the trough comes up. What do you guys think, i think it will be about 1/3 of the teams, but ive heard estimates from 15% to 75%, I'd like to hear everyone elses' estimates.

I would say about 50% of teams, if not more will do the limbo. I am comparing the under the bar vs. over the ramp thing to last years hang from the pole on the puck vs climbing the puck. You can still compete well doing either of them, you just need to be able to do one thing well.
Good Luck All,
Andy Grady, DWC/Alvirne

Or 3/378 as it were . . .
I really hope some team chose to 'fall over' at the start so they can be 36' wide, 5ft. long, and 30' high. I also hope that said team can do really well so I can tell my team 'I told ya so!.'

Can't wait to see what everyone has been doing; cya @ KSC.

i love the idea of transformer robots... would the # of limbo bots include the transformers? if so, then i'm gonna vote for 40/60 (over/under)

I dunno...they way people are talking, I'm guessing the mere act of falling over would create a decided disadvantage, timewise. It's a cool concept, but time is of the essence, so it seems.

I envisioned a really fast system to switch from starting to limbo... my team isn't following it but i think it to be possible...

We are still trying to figure out why we even have to get under the bar. Guess we will just have to keep hanging in there. At times we may seem a little slow down here in South Carolina but we plan to burn up the ramp at KSC and on to the Nationals.

I like the idea of not being blocked at the ramp.

Our design is 13 inches high by 36 X 27 so far we have it all inside the envelope. I wish the light was a bit smaller.

Anyone else have the top of the light melt a hole in itself? Seems like a lesser wattage bulb would be in order.

BTW, we tried out the boom and claw on the bench today. It grabbed a roof girder and stuck to the ceiling. We bribed it with some Mobil 1 to get it down. . .

Good luck all.

I wanted to suprise all of you but I guess I'll let out this much: This year's Bobcat goes from start to limbo in about 4 seconds.

We should be able to go from scoring at the goal to hanging on the bar in about 10 seconds.

I hope to verify both of these numbers on Saturday.

Anyone better out there? I just know someone will be...

Mike

I was thinking that the drive wheels would be touching the ground from the start and that right off the whistle the drivers would put the motors at full throttle which would cause the machine to tip over while accelerating. There might be a problem with hitting the edge of the field, but I doubt it. I really wanna see this happen though.
BTW, has anyone changed the orientation of their robot in previous years so that their footprint wasn't 30in. x 36in.? I don't think there has been a great motive to do so till now.

There was a team from Florida did it in Torroid Terror.

(As I recall it was Vistakon, Inc. / Sally Industries, Inc. & Stanton College Preparatory School, Jacksonville, FL -- now Team 86)

They had a machine that was a wedge that was 4 feet wide.

The robot had to begin the match 'upright.'

At the start of the match, they would fall over. They were not a real effective robot, but they did utilize the idea of falling over at the beginning of the match. FYI

: Pat
: Team 469

I bet ya there will be 217/378 of the teams going under the bar.

Anyway...

A robot that won't go under the bar will be infinitly tall (more like at least 4.5'), or else what's the point?

As for the tiny robots that go under, I bet ya they will be about 28 27/32 inches tall.

Maybe there will be robot that's a piece of ply wood with a device that will aim toward the hanging bar and shoot a hook toward it, then retract itself onto the bar. A 3' x 5' wood board above the ramp hanging on the bar is pretty threatening, huh?

What do you think?
