Hello CD! Team 5943 here!
We are currently at the Detroit World Championships, and we’re in a tough place. We were wondering if there were any team there that could give us some input.
We are currently trying to prioritize and decide what’s going to be more valuable/important to teams who have either already competed, or who are currently at champs with us. We are stuck between the decision to add a HAB 2 climb, or a hatch panel mechanism first. Because of the speed at which our team works, chances are we would only be able to get to one of them. We already have both of the mechanisms with us, and both are basically already ready to mount and wire.
Slowpoints with Hatch Panel mech:
- Where to place the solenoid
- Not actually sure if the mechanism works yet
Slowpoints with HAB 2 climb:
- Getting our piston and sideshield on.
- making sure its mounted at the right angle
- Not tested, but the math worked out.
Based on this, and what teams would want, what do you guys think the best way to go would be? We currently DO have a working level 3 cargo mechanism, and are really good at defense.
Thank you! We appreciate any help we can get at this point. Feel free to ask any questions if i was not clear about something, or you want some more information.
