One of my favorite reveal videos. Good luck 4499, time for a blue banner!


Awesome looking robot, sometimes the intake of an upright cone is lightning fast. Congrats and good luck this season!

How did you decide the CF stiffening members were necessary?

We wanted tie rods → We had CF on hand in a pretty convenient size → Yes

This was the thought process. Not that the CF was necessary and totally wasn’t for testing something else.


Wow, congratulations on your new robotics robot! It looks like an incredible piece of technology.

Great robot! can’t wait to play you at colorado regionals

that intake is super pretty! would y’all be willing to share how much compression you’re using? ty!

I’m not sure how important compression actually is. When we tested through the compression range we were looking for, it seemed that the angle was more important than the compression (within reason).

We did 4.75 between rollers to discourage the cube from sending itself through the intake not because we needed compression.

I’d challenge you to look at Spectrum’s (3847 or anyone similar) intake and really understand how it works.

Great job in Utah! Congratulations on captaining the #1 seed to a win. See you soon!


Congrats on your victory in Utah!
