Our first build
This was our first attempt to begin building our robot, Charlie 5.0. During our first build meeting, we started to assemble the frame, and ended up with the our robot shown above. This is only the beginning. The first step was to prioritize. We had to establish what we would build first. After deciding it would be a good idea to have a fork lift to flip caps and place them on poles and a ball intake system and launcher, we started to build.
By our first competition, our team is optimistic that we will have a working, driving robot that can at least flip caps. Team Major Trouble is excited and looking forward to a great season!
It needs some motors and encoders, but those will be done on Thursday. It appears that it will climb the platform. A couple minor adjustments and it will be drivable.
We have six weeks till our debut competition. Last night the girls started chassis building and competition strategy. More to continue at Sunday’s meeting.
Remember, we will have team meetings on Thursday evening at Scotts place, from 6-9pm and on Sunday evening from 5-9 at Stephanies place.
