Team 4488 Shockwave is proud to present our 2019 robot, Supernova.

Video reveal link: https://youtu.be/7DmY3nWb7UA

We will be competing this week at the PNW District Clackamas Academy and week 5 at PNW District Lake Oswego.

Thank you to our students and mentors who put in countless hours as well as our parents, teachers, school, and sponsors for their time and gracious support.

Update edit:
Unfortunately at the time we were filming our reveal we didn’t have it on the competition robot yet. Here’s a little teaser of our climber: https://youtu.be/_EqlWEaFblk

Is there no climbing abilities? It didn’t show in the reveal.

I cannot see anything that remotely looks like a climbing mechanism. I’d love to be proved wrong tho

Top mount bellypan with all the components on top leaves quite a bit of room underneath … maybe there’s a surprise hidden under there?

Clean design, as usual. Looking forward to seeing it in action this weekend. Good Luck!

I’ll never stop being amazed by how observant you all are. We do have a climber :grin:

This looks sick! Are you guys planning on eventually putting your arm on an elevator on top of the turret? Also, I’m not sure if I’m missing something but how do you rotate the turret? I see the motor and belt but the pulley on the motor looks like something extra may be going on there.

Good luck at your events this year Shockwave! Rooting for you as always.

We took the armabot turret and routed out our own support plate (red 1/4" plate) with a VP under it. Nothing special. We are not planning on putting the arm on a lift, in our match sims we saw that with decent defense it was impossible to get the rocket RP so we decided to stay low and score fast. but apparently defence is not happening EVERY match like we thought :confused:
