I’ve heard of batteries on fire in a match. I’ve seen batteries fall off bots during a match. But I’ve never heard of a battery ending up inside another bot during a match. Until now. :eek:
Here’s what happens when the Velcro used to secure backup batteries fails during a match. (Vex batteries were legal to use as FRC backup batteries under the 2006 rules.) This battery fell out of our robot, went through the drive train, landed on the field, and was unintentionally sucked up by 176’s bot.
Now I have to break the news to our FVC team that they are down a battery… :o
