3 Questions!!! (2/2/04)

Hi all, here are today’s 3 Questions…

  1. What type of Speed Controllers were used for the robots in 1997?

  2. Name 4 robots that had the ability to steal balls out of the goal in 2000 that were in the elimination rounds at the National Championship.

  3. What robot used a suction cup on a tether to secure the ball in the 3 point rail in 1998?

Sorry about the lack of standings, I hope to do so tonight depending on when I get out of class. Crazy weekend with the Patriots winning the superbowl and all…you know how it is :wink:

Good Luck!

  1. Tekin
  2. 131 - Chaos, 47 - ChiefDelphi, 25 - Raider Robotix, 45 - TechnoKats (we had the ability, although we were less competent at doing it compared to these other three)
  3. 16 - Baxter Bomb Squad

#1 is the old Tekin speed controllers
#2 47, 25, 131, 175
#3 16 baxter bomb squad

I am going to try my luck on this question:

Team 16, 25, 47, and 131. 16 had a roller that could steal ball from the side of the goal, 25 had an arm extended from the bar to the top of the goal, 47 had a basket that could get balls from the top of the goal, and 131 had a lift with a little arm that take balls from the top of the goal.

man Baker just beat me to it

#3 16

  1. The ancient Tekin Rebel speed controllers. They ran at low temperatures during high-speed operations, hot at slow speeds, and roasting in reverse. They also had a package of capacitors that were not recommended to be installed. And they had a battery eliminator circuit of some kind. =)

  2. Numbers: 25, 47, i dont remember the rest

  3. dunno

Hi all, here are today’s answers…

  1. Tekken Rebel Speed Controllers

  2. 25, 131, 47, 175, 67, 102, 16, 45

  3. Team 16, Baxter & Mountain Home HS (Bomb Squad)

Today’s winner is Andy Baker! Good Job!

I promise standings will be up tommorow night!

You guys were still pretty good at it. Take a look at qf1m2 on this page. Watch as teams 47 and 45 work together to get rid of a 5 pt. ball as time expires. This move turned an 18-15 loss into a 15-13 victory. One of the cooler things that I’ve seen at a FIRST competition.
