pic: Sparky and Eagle



The Average Joes built two robots for 2016. On bag night we decided that Eagle, the one that uses Talon motor controllers, would be our competition robot. Sparky, also named for its motor controllers, served as the practice robot. They were very nearly identical until we added a scaling mechanism to Eagle. Our scale can be seen in Newton Q105, and QF2-1.
