So there are plenty of teams that have cranked out a reveal video…this year, we’ve decided to make a highlight reel of our regional action as we head into our first trip to champs. This has been an incredible year for us, and I would like to specifically thank the following Texas teams who over the past five years have inspired us to not only build better robots and be competitive, but have also inspired us with their genuine Texas-sized gracious professionalism and willingness to help our team and other teams find their way in the greater FIRST community.
Amazing video!! Sucks the DiscoBots never got a chance to play with you guys this year. Y’all have had an amazing year, HUGE congrats on it. We will be routing for you guys at Champs and we know you’ll make Texas proud!!
Thanks! We use #4cims to direct drive 4 slip wheels in tank drive…I argued for higher traction wheels, but was shown why that was a bad idea…Of course, our driver and the amazing data our scouting team collects has a lot to do with the defense, too
I’ve heard a lot of things about you, and several members on my team can’t wait to meet you at champs…not calling anyone out…well, not until later in this post
No love lost there. You play to win and that we know that hit wasn’t intentional. That was back when we were very top heavy (though we did get knocked over again at Alamo) but we knew the defense was coming.
I keep forgetting that we have Texas Robot Roundup in the off-season so we will have another chance to play with you guys. Hope to see you there!!
We’re on the planning committee and help run the event, so you know we’ll be there in full force! This year’s TRR will be fun given the fact that we’ve seen great robots compete at all four Texas events, and it’ll really be something to see them all competing under the same roof!
We thought it might be better video for our highlight reel than the blocker we had in semis 1 that was flopping all over the place, as well as the other cycles y’all made where you drove circles around us lol
Thanks for cheering us on, it means a lot to us, and we’ll do our best to make Texas proud!
Fun Fact: We’ve got nothing but love and respect for 624. CRyptonite was the first team that ever picked 2789 for an alliance selection…even if it was for the Mentor’s Tournament at the first TRR…it meant a lot to our young team, particularly given the fact that our alliance won the mentor’s tournament and that was also the first competition trophy our team ever won! That trophy is proudly displayed with our other awards.
