how much pistons can we use max? we dont have our manual OR kit yet, so we dont know… were just coming up with ideas on how to use it
You can find the manual at the FIRST Website. The kit comes with one actuator, and the “Restricted Hardware List” lists up to three more as permissible. That should allow for a total of four actuators.
Go to the FIRST web site and download the manual. Its pdf format
There is one piston in th ekit (I forget the size) and we get to order 3 more
Hawaii! I thought we had to get up early to watch the kitoff!
In other words, you may use four pistons…

**First provides the one tiny little piston and than you can buy 3 more pistons of any length up to 12’’ and i think 2.5’’ bore. **

Pneumatics Kit, Cylinder, Parker 1.5" bore x 8" stroke
I don’t think that’s a “tiny little piston,” myself, but that’s just me.
In the 2003 Pneumatics Manual, they indicate that the custom cylinders we are allowed to order (via the order form on the last page of the manual) range from 1/2" to 12" in stroke, at 3/4", 1 1/2" and 2" bores.
