So can this thing hold 2 balls at once, or just one.
Also, how are you doing the ball tracking? My team has really struggled with getting it to work.

Good robot, and best of luck at your competitions!

1 ball and photonvision with a lot of tuning

Did you find the flashflight had a big impact?

It works with and without a flashlight and it sometimes works better with, and sometimes better without a flashlight. The flashlight we have comes with multiple modes (high, low, and strobe) and it sometimes switches modes spontaneously, and since the talonsrx that controls it can’t read the output current afaik, the bot can’t tell what mode its on, so it sometimes makes it worse.

We had named our robot Altair in 2019 after the space ship for the canceled Constellation moon mission.

We meant Altair as in a star whose name translates to Flying Eagle, this is our first year climbing, it also translates to falcon, and this is our first year using falcons.
