Valor kicked off the 2019 FRC season with the release of this years game, Destination: Deep Space
At the end of week 1, 6800 has finished rule, strategy and design sessions. We began manufacturing our practice and competition robots.
Following a busy first week, our team finished two robot chassis, the intake design CAD, and made prototypes for a hatch intake and a cargo intake.
This week, the mentors held our final design review meeting. We are beginning the process of manufacturing the lift bars, intake mechanism, hatch mechanism, and forklift.
Parts were powder-coated and we’ve starting assembling the robot. The merchandise store is now live with our branded gear!
Our first robot is complete! On the hardware side we worked on wiring and assembling the lift, and on the business side we submitted the Chairman’s essay.
We ran our first systems check and drive practice, and we’re officially ready for our first competition.
We’re getting ready for Oklahoma regionals next week. We bagged our competition robot and got in some crucial last minute training with the practice robot to fine tune any movement commands.
