Yes, we’re close an invalid hang. We’re shifting the battery on Thursday morning to move the balance point a bit and make things more obvious. Also, our fourth frisbee shoots a little hot as it’s not dealing with the drag from the other frisbees. We might put a counter in the firing program to slow down the fourth shot a hair.
Unshown is a video of us shooting from the far corner of the pyramid, which we’ll have as an autonomous option, and a vid of us sinking 4 3-pt frisbees while hanging from the near side. I swore we weren’t at the right angle or speed for that, but my coach proved me wrong, so now it’s a feature.
I’d settle for getting them to the boot camps and robot builds so we can get them a leg up for Lone Star. Royal High School came by our shop last Saturday and we helped them whip together a reasonably competent shooter in a day. We really need more teams willing to ask for help when they need it.
If you’re claiming your robot wasn’t pretty enough for scrimmage, I’d like to point out that 3335 showed up with a practice bot that had a rats nest of pneumatic tubes and reservoirs. I don’t think a robot can be too ugly for scrimmage if it’s not in flames.
Fighting Pickles and Crusading Cucumbers have already been taken by top quality FTC teams at Mansfield HS up DFW way. They send a kid out in one of those all green spandex jumpsuits with boxing gloves which is a hoot:D What an alliance of mascots that would be to have team Heinz with the Fighting Pickles:ahh:
Must be past the FRC build window and tournament prep brain creeping in and controlling my thoughts…
