Re: Robot Arm C

I think many teams were distracted with the height task and didnt focus on practicing as much. I saw pretty much every run except the first hour, and I think alot of the mistakes I saw were a result of not practicing until the actions are automatic.

Congrats to placing teams

Re: Robot Arm C

I always wondered how powerful that spring lynxmotion sold since they didnt give any K value type information about it, did you find that it was strong enough to provide any significant assistance with the shoulder servo? I used a spring off of a patio-door-pulling-thing I found at True Value that w...

Re: Robot Arm C

Not sure what to make of that. Seems pretty clear to me. However, its not really an unfair interpretation if its a common one within that fringe group that puts the time in to do it, which I assume that group is very present at nationals more than in fringe quantities.
