Looks like the arm took a couple hits… Is it still functional?
It worked fine at Palmetto from what I saw. Fine enough to be an alliance captain and make the semis (before losing to the eventual-finalist 1251/1758/1626 alliance–I know the feeling.)
That’s one pretty awesome team and people to work with.
yeah it looks pretty weird because it is halfway in the air, but it worked just fine without any problems for two more events…
one more thing to add to that is the two banebots that drove it never had a problem once through all three events
Ours did… =-
i thought you guys had andy mark 2 speed?
He’s talking about their arm, which is driven using two BaneBots gearheads (I’m not certain if the motor attached is a FP or BaneBots) It looks really weird (to me at least) in competition to see this large four link arm driven (at a decent clip too) by these little barely visible motors on the sides of the rear tower (which also houses a camera in a very unexpected and hard to find locale) but it works quite well.
we did, here in the wheel well: http://farm1.static.flickr.com/150/372331836_e773425dcd.jpg?v=0
but like luke said I am referring to the banebots on the side http://farm2.static.flickr.com/1228/542378986_f44da8651c.jpg?v=0
Oh and if anyone was interested in the camera mount here (this is a the top of the tower behind the linkage as luke mentioned): http://farm2.static.flickr.com/1063/542378982_ae07c1184e.jpg?v=0
there are a lot of pics here additionally: http://flickr.com/photos/jskowski/sets/72157594544777130/
