How heavy is your Robot?

Our robot is about 35 pounds http://i489.photobucket.com/albums/rr259/RRLedford/FTC2012-13/20121218_193635_zpsae429877.jpg

I forgot to mention. Ours is 37.5 pounds.

24 pounds (23lbs 6 oz, but leave it at 24 lbs for error reasons). Might be a little bit more if we add a counterbalance to it.

38 pounds and pushing the 18" envelope.



22.2 lbs.


One of the teams at my school’s robot weighs 45 pounds

A team in Florida was 78 lbs. Let that sink in a little bit.

It’s a good thing the new custom gearbox I made is rated to 90 pounds. Still. That’s just excessive.

Our robot, Chuck, is tipping the scales at 37 pounds. We’re not looking forward to hauling him from Canada to St. Louis! :yikes:

Did they advance to World’s?

I wouldn’t know without asking Mannie, but I was told that Masquerade weighed that much or more…

Our robot.
Global Force 3864 (G-Force)

Thanks for the props John, but everyone can see who got invited to Worlds at this link: http://www.usfirst.org/sites/default/files/uploadedFiles/Robotics_Programs/FTC/Game_Info/2012/World_Championship_Roster.pdf

And no, Masquerade (FTC #4997) didn’t get in, but their sister team, Maelstrom (FTC #3846) did. See http://middletonrobotics.com/ for details.
