What do you think the over/under is on Cargo balls destroyed in each tournament? I think it’s going to be a real problem.
I think 5-10 balls will be destroyed each competition. I don’t think it’s going to be a problem. Our shooter grips the ball pretty hard and it doesn’t show any sign of popping
I believe there will be more problems with Hatch panel velcro coming off/being too weak to hold
We’ve destroyed at least two balls, one of which was destroyed by the friction of the shooter wheels (That are now replaced) melting the surface. The insides are rather frictiony, they could be interesting for use in some mechanism… Fun.
Our redesigned ball thingy is easy on the cargo. But if we drive up on top of one, bad things could happen.
My team landed (Read: got pushed) on a ball, and it didn’t pop. These things seem very sensitive to only certain types of force.
At week zero only 1 ball got popped (to my knowledge) and it wasn’t even when a robot got beached onto a ball one match
