What plate are you talking about? There isn't anything about a plate in the rules that I've seen.does anyone how high the plate form base is and are we allowed to bring are own?
Not sure I've said it in this string already, but this is NOT an official arm of the NSO, no answer you get here can or should be considered official. If you need an official answer, you need to ask a clarification or FAQ question on the National SO site. Unfortunately, its kinda late. They generally cutoff responses 30 days before the national tournament to give everyone time to see and adjust to the clarifications.does anyone how high the plate form base is and are we allowed to bring are own?
Great question. I actually was just working on the revised rules and thought 2.4 GHz was in there.. but you're right it's not. That's an oversight I've just corrected. Thanks for pointing it out.Chalker or chalker7, are they likely to rule out 2.4 GHz transmitters again next year, or do you think they will be allowed?
It was great! I used a vex robotic set and won first place haha. Ive been keeping up with this forum for the past few months in regards to this trial event and thought I might jump in. Our team came in 44th in Nationals (Fairfax High School, VA). I made some major mistakes like knocking down the northern jar but I managed to get all the rest of the objects in their place and ended with a score of 74. Usually I get higher in practice runs but the nervousness got to me. Cant wait till its an official event next year!How did the event go at Nationals?
I was thinking more along the lines of bike cableI met like ... Well the first tie breaker is the number of motors used, and I was just wondering if anyone had a plan for using one motor to get max points. I've been racking my brain, and I can't come up with anything, but I'm sure someone will!
@HarryK: How can you control this completely without electronics? I can see hydraulics working, but I don't think that you could handle the syringes that control everything by hand. And syringes aren't "wires" either.
Ah, that would be trueRegardless of whether bike cables are "wires", you would run into an issue with 2f. You would be using hand-controlled mechanical cables and human power is not one of the ways that robot motion is allowed to be powered.
You would have trouble with 4.c.vi. too, since mechanical motion is what is being transmitted down the "wires", you would be violating that.
Don't think that bike cables would fly.
