Team 254 Presents: Backlash


#21

Was expecting music from someone else who is un-de-fea-ted. But I guess the video will be talked about for years to come regardless.


#22

2:54 long…


#23

360 turret gang


#24

Talk about indirect bold claims…


#25

Only sometimes.


#27

our reveal video came out first so we can say that the poofs copied our turreted elevator.

#28

Neat


#29

That’s not quite the right Decepticon, but he does sound pretty badass.


#30

I didn’t expect 254 to receive so much backlash for their unique approach their reveal video this year.


#31

Same


#32

no


#33

Well the other one is dead from my searching, and I dont think 254 died recently…


#34

What did you guys use on the base of the tower to allow the tower to connect to the motor?


#35


just found this on their website


#36

This photo is from their website if it helps.

Edit: sorry about that @waxton didn’t mean to steal any thunder


#37

254 switching from Colsons (and omnis) back to blue nitrile roughtop tread. Interesting. Perhaps the lack of need for ultra-precise path following in a game with numerous vision targets and a robot that has auto-correction to those vision targets without requiring drivebase interaction played a role in that decision. Also no protected scoring zones (but the <100lb robot runs counter to the maximizing static friction theory).


#38

Can it continuously rotate?


#39

Man this robot is sick. I imagine this is going to be scary fast at pickup and scoring. From the robot’s name, I guess this robot has tons of backlash or no backlash. Can’t wait to see it in action.


#40

Wow that cable carrier routing is nicer than our whole robot.


#41

I wonder if the inspector is going to call them on that RSL. It’s not very visible down there.
