And a video of hangng http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G-iiDjL0zBg
Joe, sad I missed seeing that in person. Can you only hang from a bump? How did you release your hook, is it controlled or is it just a simple passive system? How do you get your arm up there? What are you using to lift? Is Clinton going to use you showing up and him having to hide all the cool stuff as an excuse?
See you in a couple weeks at Kettering right?
We had fun with Clint, Brandie and the rest of the N.E.R.D.S!! They are going to once again have a great robot as usual!! We can hang from anywhere. We just wanted to see if the driver could stop on the bump and hang from there. Yes we will be at Kettering. We are going to build a devise to keep on our cart to remove the hook. The hook and arm seperate from each other.
I suspect that you’re already on top of this… but will mention it in the hopes that others looking at the photo also remember to put their team number on the bumpers.
Doing that tomorrow. Along with the sponsors on our cover. We just wanted to put them on to practice with. They go on and off easily!!
Do you guys kick the ball? If so, how far? Looking great guys!
We kick the ball over the bump, about 20 feet. We also have a short kick for close work.
