Vex Competition

Marin Robotics – Team 2465 – Jan. 31 2015 – Tracy CA

We had fun in Vex competition “Skyline”. The robots have a 30 sec autonomous mode and then 2 min being driven by remote control. The robots are built to lift cubes or cylinders. You have to pick up the cubes and stack them on the poles. Not an easy feat!

Many ups and downs throughout the day. We broke 2 motor controllers and would have been stuck. However Team Mecha*Eagles saved the day by loaning 2 of their controllers. A big shout to them!!! Thank you!

Lots of technical issues getting the scissor lift to work correctly.
