Waialua Robotics #359 2005 robot

Aloha! This is team 359’s new 2005 robot. It uses a scissor system to lift tetras to a goal.

How high does your lift go? How much does it wobble, or conversely, how do you keep it from wobbling? I was pushing really hard for a scissor lift at the beginning of build season, but my team thought it to be too complex. Congrats… that’s a very nice-looking robot.

The robot is able to lift approx. 7-8 feet using our scissor mechanism. To slove the wobbling problem we added bushing between the scissors. The bushing did not eliminate all the wobble but help cut it down.
