Completed Frisbee Shooter

For this year’s FIRST Robotics Competition, Ultimate Ascent, we knew that we had to be quick if we wanted to both shoot Frisbees and climb the tower. Thus, by week two, we had started on our shooter prototype and by the end of the fourth week, we had completed assembling our shooter.

We were rather surprised not only by how powerful the shooter was, but also by how successfully the hopper performed. The piston and the Frisbees worked flawlessly together, which will hopefully help our robot shoot more consistently. Overall, things seem to be going well.

Robot Chassis

Our robot chassis this year was design specifically for size and spin. We needed it to be small, strong, and compact as there is very limited space this year and we decided to add two omni wheels to allow our robot to aim more efficiently.
