Brie tried to fly yesterday during the CHS SW district event. She failed miserably. If you look closely, you can see bits of rope in mid air. It was a great photo catch by one of our parents.
This is why we opted to not use paracord.
Hopefully there wasn’t any major damage from the fall, I remember some of the falls from 2013 were brutal on the robots. With the much shorter climb this this year, I would hope that won’t be as much of a problem.
No damage on either fall. The first one was what was posted. The second was because of a sharp edge on the corner of the rope restraining system. It sliced it in two. We went to a thicker rope and had a lot of success after that.
