I was wondering if we could get a comprehensive list of VEX pilot teams started in this thread so that we can communicate with each other. It will make things more interesting and fun if we bond a little bit before Atlanta.
We are **FRV Team 45 ** (no name yet) Sponsored by FRC Team 341.
We are Rebelrobotics Team FRV-21. See us at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/rebelrobotics/. We don’t have Board of Ed approval yet !!! Monday Aprill 11th hopefully ??? We can’t plan anything and most of us are going to be scambling last min to put this together and get there. It will be a miracle if we get there at all. Paul Kloburg has been a great help and supporter of our efforts from the NJ-NY Division. We don’t have a mentor yet, we will approach FRC Team #25 from N. Brunswick…Good Luck, Hope to see you down there…maybe…
Oh yes finally some contact!!! sob
We’re team FRV-39
Most of team 1597 is on it, and that teams name is “Blue Falcons”
so we were planning on using that for both , but if there’s a rule against that I rules we will have to rethink that.
My biggest question to you guys is how are you guys going to deal without programming.
(If you havent figured it out by now, we all have a built in program we can’t alter until VEXv1.0, you can only program the controller)
And how far along are you guys in completing the robot.
We’re located in the Bronx (New York) if anyone wants to have a get together
or has a ny questions plz contact me at [email protected]
I really hope ppl reply to this thread to help others!
Hi - I am from team FRV-23, Daughters of Isaac. We have 5 girls in eighth grade on our team. I am more of a facilitator than a coach, as I have never tried to make anything remotely mechanical in my life! I really like the kit, and think it will be very successful, but would like to see some changes, too. I loved that with no experience whatsoever you could get a robot working in 2 hours. Then from there, we could make small changes and learn quickly.
Right now, we have a working chassis and part of a ball collector. We’re hoping to get an arm of some kind soon. We really need to figure out the two transmitter situation. Right now, we can only use one transmitter.
A temporary workaround is to get two telephone handset cords, plug them into the tether port on each transmitter, and plug the other end in place of the receivers. You then have to follow the bot carefully, if it is mobile. If it is stationary, you are home free.
Josh mangrum from FRV-42 The hitchhikers here. our team has built about half of the field too. can anyone tell me why they gave us such specific mesurements for the field? 42.07 in. is just a little too specific don’t you think? well, anyways, we have our chassis and the beginnings of an arm and were having fun with the drivetrain. I think that it’s really cool that someone started this thread. it’s good to know that there are other VEX guys out there who are having just as fun a time. well…hope to see all of you at Atlanta! Bye now!
