Control Box Sizes

Does anyone know what the max size is? i know the shelf is 9in by 42in but are we allowed to have overhang? im part of a rookie team so i have no idea about this. any help is much appreciated :smiley: heh.

I was just wondering why would you need more than 9"x42"? That’s a lot of space.

for the full cockpit flight simulator, obviously.

ours is 9"x48"…oops…but Andy B. thinks that it’s alright…hopefully it will be. I guess that I should have looked into that when I was designing it.

Oh well, we can just saw off those dumb driver joysticks…

I’m going to hold you to that, Greg :stuck_out_tongue:

i need to know b/c i have a laptop mount in the control box area and well, it is too big for the 9 inches so i need 2 know if i can have overhang., at least with that dimension

According to the FIRST Q/A, you can over hang the 9" shelf.

Q: Can a part of the operator interface not be on the shelf at all ? For instance a control pedal for part of the robot sit on the floor in front of the driver?
A: Yes, as long as it remains within the boundaries of your Team Zone .
