What an absolutely amazing bot! Definitely worthy of all the accolades and praise they’ve received this year. The fact that freshman were able to contribute so much to such an amazing bot speaks to just how talented their students are.

Gotta second on the pit! The color scheme with it makes it even better!

I had the privilege of volunteering at 4 events where 4414 competed (Port Hueneme, Ventura, Aerospace Valley, and CMP) and I enjoyed interacting with their drive team and watching their robot compete. Definitely the high point of the 2022 season.

I can’t believe this team only has 12 students. Incredible robot and operations for such a small group.

Not just a great robot but they have the best organized pit I’ve seen. I would love the plans to it if available.

Sorry didn’t see the other thread till now.

Impressively well integrated! Do you guys plan on releasing CAD?

What does the giant box structure on the outside do?

The frame was the only part of our robot that we didn’t iterate between our 2nd and 3rd event. At some point it was integrated into our intake and climber more aggressively. By champs it was really only a nice surface for our cable chain and a place for me to set my water bottle in que while doing pre match strategy.

Did it also provide the structure for your head such that it didn’t fall off?

This plate holds the climber cantilever from the back drive rail without the need for an additional cross tube, you can see it mounted to the base of our rev3 climber in the interview.

Not sure it’s the most weight efficient way to hold a turret up, but it did save the turret from countless faceplants.
