I’ve been around FRC for about 3 years now and I’ve seen some great color schemes over the years. There are the classics such as 148 with #allblackeverything and 118 with red, white, and gold as well as newcomers like 4414’s white and teal. What team, in your opinion, do you think has the best color scheme?
Black with LEDs
4028 because that shiny black is fantastic!
While I’m partial to certain obnoxious orange and green catastrophes, I will always love 4039’s rainbow robots.
Second to 4414 as well! I absolutely love the aesthetic of their robot.
I really enjoy 4488’s bots. blackandredeverything and they have a signature LED strip that just ties it all together.
148’s signature black with hints of red
118’s signature white and gold
195’s signature green, black and dark purple
254’s signature blue and their robot bumper number style (and their signature electronics base)
2767’s signature yellow
20’s green led strips
4414’s tidal color scheme
4414 is sweet as many have said.
3847 and any other white robots would be second place IMO. #allwhiteeverything
In the words of JVN himself, “#AllBlackEverything doesn’t mean #AllBlackSomethings”
4488’s robots are absolutely beautiful every year; their 2014 robot will always be my personal favorite robot ever if just for the imagery.
1538 builds very pretty robots every year as well, the stark white and black with the smoked lexan, I mean it’s hard to look at without thinking “holy cow”
Uppercut’s beak had red…
100’s signature orange hat (And now custom bumper numbers!)
(Yes, I’m biased)
Also 118, 148, 1678, and 254.
I too love 1678’s color scheme of bare aluminum
319 runs the same, usiing a Brillo pad and a little elbo grease makes for some really pretty aluminum
For any other teams that rock the bare aluminum, sandblasting/glass beading goes a loooong way to improving the look of parts. You get a nice, matte, smooth, even finish. Then if you ever step up to anodizing, it looks even better. Brillo/scotch brite can help as well, but the marks are still visible if you don’t pay close attention.
Lately I’ve been partial to 176’s black and red. 11 adopted black and red this year as well and I’m digging it.
Other than that, I love me some purple. 195’s color scheme this year is gorgeous and so is 1885.
Have to add on and say I love the 4414 colors.
- Swampy, intimidating, and beautiful.
Ditto 118, 148, 195, 254, 1538, 4028, 4488
Also adding 1241 and 2046.
1024 bright blue and yellow is always a classic.
Pure silver and various colors of gaffer’s tape is always a classic.
