639 unequal balancing

We took out a couple old robots and tested them on a bridge; this is our drivers first try at balancing. The robots you see in it are our 2010 robot and the 2011 kitbot. The bridge is horribly calibrated; it tips when the two batteries are at 14", but we still managed to balance!

Team 639 balancing with old robots.

Very nice!

With some practice that’ll be a fifteen second routine. Very nice demonstration.

Nice job. I hope this helps teams realize that when it comes to two robot balances in the qualifiers, an experienced driver and an alliance pre-match bridge plan will win you a lot of bridges…

As for how to get three bots on a bridge in elims?
