While far from our simplest endeavor, we think this is our best one yet. A truss shooter specialist, this robot can quickly acquire the ball and shoot over the truss from multiple trajectories, allowing us to adjust our shot for whatever the catcher on our alliance might need. Can shoot into the goal from short range or from about 1/3rd of the field if moving full speed. We look forward to alliance strategy this year, we’ve got a bunch of tricks up our sleeve.
If you’re in the Capital region, please let us know if you would like to practice together.
