Thanks guys. The robot does not hang, though we did design a hanging system, weight restrictions kept it off the robot. There is no ball possession device build into the robot because we built that ball pusher into the kicker cavity. The ball moves well with the robot, as shown here. The ball pusher is there because we were afraid of running over the ball with the robot’s speed. And yes, industrial strength velcro holding the plexi down.
Thanks for the cheers of good luck guys! We’re all just ready to have some fun at our regionals.
Randy…Yes, I do hope to end up across from 223 again at Philly. Between being across from Extreme Heat and next to the Red Devils it got to be a little hot! Yeah, you just reminded about the whole David Beckham vs. LA Galaxy thing. The story behind the name is that we’re naming robots in alphabetical order starting with this year. So with this being our second year we go with the letter “B”. I can promise that Brave Beckham won’t argue with fans and play for 3 different leagues at once!
Yeah, those were thrown on at the last minute after deciding not to go with the hanging system. It is possible that they may end up off the robot or swung around to the inside of the frame after being notched out to fit the t-slot.
