3360 robot reveal, Manticore

Here’s our robot for the 2016 season. Hope you guys enjoy! :cool: :cool:

Looks really awesome.

Very nice robot!

Brilliant drive train. Well done!

Byfar the most elegant robot I’ve seen so far this season. I’m looking forward to awesome things from 3360!

Beautiful machine! Very well thought out.

Are those 775’s in your drive train? No cims? Looks like they work well!

Yes they are. 8 775’s pros each with their own Versaplanetary on the drive train. We also used Vex’s new integrated encoders along with the talon SRXs and it works fine.
We thought we could have problems with them burning out, but after heavy testing, there is now way of that ever happening in a 2:30 match :yikes:

What kind of reduction are you having to use for the 775s?

25:1 with 2 stages, and we bring it up to 36:1 with the chains. That way it runs at a similar torque/speed you’d get from CIMs, but we got 8 of them :rolleyes:

Beautiful machine and amazing reveal Video

Elegant is the best word I’ve seen to describe this machine. The high release on the catapult, the ease of crossing the drawbridge, and the shortened climbing mechanism all blew me away.

Great job!

Incredibly well designed and thought out machine. Also, (echoing others) a very elegant and beautiful robot. Excited to play with you guys at GTRC.

It will definitely be a blast ! :smiley:
