FRC Team 95’s 2006 robot, Lilly, showing off its “shotgun” shooter that can shoot 3 balls simultaneously.

I was really impressed with this system at BAE. I’m glad you’ve got everything up and running again. Good luck!

Ahh… confucious say; Very good grasshopper.

You just have to see it to believe it. Truly amazing. Not to mention, they (almost) all go in. They’re awesome at autonomous.

Holy Copioli, that’s incredible. :yikes:

That is probably one of the coolest shooters I’ve seen so far. What motors did you use for the shooter wheel (or in this case pipe). It must take quite a bit of horsepower to keep it up to speed with three poof balls going through it at once. Does anyone have any video of this beast in action?

Looks great guys, good luck!

It’s driven by two FP’s.

The two FPs run at full speed, and we have to be sure they’ve spun up before we feed the balls to them. But aside from that, they don’t really slow down much while shooting.

I’ve got video. I’ll try to download it from the camera tonight.

Looks great guys, good luck!

Thanks, we’re having quite a good time here.

i must say that is one very impressive system
