I actually was going to use a custom wormdrive gearbox(to eliminate back-drive) with an external pot. Unfortunately I couldn't get my gearbox and pot to behave nicely together so I resorted back to the winch servo about a week before state.Same here, harryk Although given more time, I would've changed it to a regular high-torque servo with the potentiometer externalized to get the needed range and gearing- I didn't like having to trick the PID loop of my servo in order to get it to move fast enough.
ThanksSome things I would like to say
1. In no way is anyone from Poudre suggesting that jdogg should not have won.
2. Plaid suit 2 (pl2) does not have a dog in this race. He did not compete. (He was taking a test at the time) however, he was the designer and built the robot.
3. This team was a sophomore who loves to build and two freshman who are perfectionists. The night before, they fighting over how to consistently get under 1.5cm from the dot in gv because 1.5 is not good enough.
4. Pl2's frustration is with how the rules were written. To understand him more. He does not build to win he builds to wow. He feels that he was denied the opportunity to do his best.
Winning is a happy side note to him. He wants to build amazing.
In two events pl2 feels that he was denied the opportunity to truly do his best. And those that saw him at the gliders know how upset he was.
Again, in no way is anyone from Poudre saying jdogg did not earn or deserve his first place. If anyone knows the hours it takes to earn as many medals as jdogg it's the Poudre build team and they have nothing but respect for him
that is so cool, congrats on first!

That's really awesome , haha I haven't seen that xkcd XD.How do you end up measuring something that high? It looks like the tape measure's looped over itself too many times to make it useful. Also of note: http://xkcd.com/284/
