This was our team’s second robot for the 2017 Season. This robot was designed and built in 6 hours, as a result of a failed inspection at our last district qualifier.
This robot’s mission was simple - deliver gears and climb. It accomplished this job exceptionally well as it had a climb time of 3 seconds and averaged 3 gears in a match. This robot gained ruport among judges due to its ingenious use of thicker metal as a cantilever. The climber was powered by a 775 pro motor running into a 30:1 Versa Planetary Gearbox. The gear mechanism was passive, and recycled the same design from the previous version.
