Nice. I’m guessing we’re going to see a similar system to Gloria, which worked so well?
Yeah. That was the original idea. It’s been a bit modified, but dimensions are the same. The layout is pretty similar to Gloria with 1 or 2 changes, and the execution is also a bit different. You’ll all get to see later, though.
Anybody who wants to know, the 'bot (even though it’s not assembeled yet) is named GloryAngel this year, in honor of my sister (it’s a long story, basically she got in a car accident and has been in a hospital ever since, she’s a former FIRSTer, PM me if you want more info).
your good lol
similar but modified to suit the game better
i will give more info on it later in the build season
Yeah, I was thinking of posting some more next week, when we have the whole basic chassis built. Manipulator/payload/strategy and whatnot won’t be shown for a while.
EDIT: Also might I add that this year’s chassis is the same 1/4" - 3" - x" that we used last year. Obviously it works, so why change it?
i like this years mods driving it is going to take to getting use to but yeah it will be fun
Yeah Brian, but what’s FIRST without a little challenge.
I still think we’ve reached an interesting compromise.
good point it does make it more interesting
chassis rails similar to our design. Very cool
I doubt you can gauge similarity based off of a measurement and two holes…
Now, if you mean materials, that’s a different story. It’s good aluminium. We used it last year on our Rack n’ Roll 'bot, Gloria Machina. That chassis was stupifyingly strong.
I was talking about the material and I assume the arrangement of the frame.
Don’t be so sure about the arrangement.
But yeah, the material is good stuff.
well thank you for this rare look at a fine specimen of aluminum. I’m sorry i fail to see how this could be either be interesting or remarkable nor can i agree with giving this photo and many others like it this haphazard label of “teaser”
just my 2¢, pardon my irritated sarcasm
We like being secretive. So for right now all you get is a measurement, two slightly countersunk holes, and one very amused 675 member. Within a few days, you might get another measurement, or an interesting angle of some component or something. Those who care can piece the teasers together and get a better idea of what we’re doing. Those that don’t care can just chill out and wait for the completed shots. =p
wow, we go through less painfull methods to show our freshmen who is boss, but do what you want, even if it means hitting them with a 36" piece of aluminum…
