I am a bit confused and I'm hoping somebody can
help out. I applied the bacteria dispenser fixes as noted and
originally had some droop. However, I no longer have droop, does this
mean I did something wrong?
29 - DROOPY BACTERIA
True enough, the small fixes applied to the bacteria
dispensers weren't enough to stop them from leaning. Better fixes
would have either been too difficult to describe, or would have interfered
with the robot's path under the bin. Luckily the droop is pretty
consistent, and the dispensers work exactly as intended. This post is
official acceptance of the droop. You've all been working with the
droop for about two months now, and we're not going to mess with it on
you. To teams: Expect the same droop at tournaments as you're
used to in practice. To tournament officials: Prepare the
bacteria dispensers as per Update #12, and don't try to lessen the droop in
any other way (no tape, Dual Lock, weights, further redesign, etc.) - it
would hurt teams more than it would help.
Contrary to what update 29 says, It might be
that some of us will be at a disadvantage. I moved, per instructions,
the dual loc as far up on the front legs as possible and also moved the
other four up to be on the "X"'d out boxes in the middle. I have no
dual lock on the back "X"'d out blocks right now.
All of our robot and code design is based on
this. What do we need to change, redesign, recode, and practice
to not be at a disadvantage come this Saturday at LC Bird? Can anybody
