Presenting the 2014 Ultimate Protection Squad Robots:
Charles Xavier (Practice) and Professor X (Competition)
For the first time in our 10 year history, we have a fully functional practice bot. Last year we somewhat reinvented ourselves with a much more prevalent super-hero theme so its only natural that our robots will now be named after super-heroes. For our 10th anniversary, Professor X was the natural choice. But enough jibber-jabber, how about some stats:
6 Wheel WCD, 16.5 fps / 6.5 fps with 4 CIM
Center mounted arm with 444:1 total reduction on an AM-2161
Arm can rotate 240 degrees, pick up on either side (needs a wall on back side) and shoot from either side or straight up.
Linear punch using AM Super Shifter with custom gearing and 2 CIMs.
BAG Motor Roller claw with two positions for clean release/catch or pickup.
Video coming soonish.
We’ll see you at Wisconsin and Midwest.
