In 2018 and 2019 my team has had a lot of trouble with the endgame at our competitions. In 2019, we quickly tried to add an level 2 climb at competition, and it actually worked. However, it never did on the field, after we got back we were able to determine that it appears to be battery related we were able to climb as much as we wanted on a fresh battery but if we drove the robot around at all then we would be unable to climb.
Is it best to try to design our endgame mechanism to be more battery friendly? What are good ways to go about doing that? Are all our batteries bad?
