Seriously? A fan? You’ve been talking to Sean too much
Where would it go btw and how much thrust are you looking for? Custom FP gearbox? CIMs? Details man! Details!
Bot looks so sick, very Poofesque with the paint.
I think I see a good spot…
I think adding a shrouded fan would be a great idea. I personally thought that your bot wasn’t too efficient when you guys were heavily defended against in davis. I think the fan would give you a leg up in those pushing matches. ^^
Heh, must’ve been decently efficient if it drew that much defense to it.
There’s not many robots I can think of that can pull out of a tag team pin to the wall. Its tough. 330 did it before I think.
in all fairness i think that this robot was quite efficient at Davis. While there, we found you guys to be a very good robot…but i have to say this, i’m engaged to your robot!
I see you guys have taken some battle damage, but it still looks drop dead pretty (something about that blue frame).
Woah I just saw that now that you pointed it out. What/who happened there?:ahh:
I see you used the original 2 piece chain tensioners…
haha I pointed this out at Davis, they ended up not make the AM chain tensioners for #25 chain. They used a lot of the AM ones on their manipulator and ball pickup
Sean did finally convince me, we have about 4 lbs of dead weight on the bot. So why not add a fan for a tad bit more thrust. We are gonna get a fan between 15-22 inches; direct driven from a fp due to weight or maybe a 2:1 ratio off of the fp.
I was watching some of our matches and in about 95% of the matches we got pinned by two robots atleast once a match. It kinda sucked . Hopefully we can push with the fans:rolleyes:
Yeah, I think Squirrel brought this part up. When ball collecting mechanisms collide with a part of the bot, it sometimes hits the frame. Good thing we built a tank:ahh:
We didn’t have enough time to machine the #25 series ones because they required some special operations and we just didn’t have enough time. But we used a single piece of the AM #35 chain ones and made a slot for #25 chain. They are spray painted black and are used everywhere: the mast, the shoooter and the ball collector.
picks up jaw, loves the look
