Apex Robotics: Project SUBZ3R0

See Reveal Thread Here:

It’s cute how if you write it "Project 5U8Z3R0 it has all of your team number in it.

Do you actually scale with the air cylinder?

The intent is to scale with 2 air cylinders and spring assist (thanks Vulcan Spring for the PDV!). We didn’t get the springs on in time for Auburn Mountainview, but we should be scaling by Central (Week 3) if we don’t have any major issues getting the springs on.

The cylinders are 1-1/4" Bore x 28" Stroke from McMaster. We could have gone with larger cylinders and no springs, but we didn’t like how many air tanks that would have required.
