Day 14 – Jan 23rd, 2016

We went to Spectrum to work on our robot; we riveted the frame together and then borrowed all the Spectrum field defenses and pushed the drive train over them. We then discovered that we had little trouble getting over the majority of the defenses but we had trouble getting over the ramparts (opposing ramps.) We decided to make the two side tubes of the frame 3″ x 1″ , and the front and back tubes 1″ x 1″. We also tested the linear punch, and we got it to shoot 25 feet, but discovered that it was too weak to get the boulder into the goal from the specified distance.
