Mini-Slalom Challenge: 1st place ($99): Whisk--1:16.31 2nd place (no prize money): Plan B--1:32.47impressive! ive never been able to win the mini . . .i see the fertilizer is still a problem, hope it doesnt gunk up my sensors again . . .as for the bolts and nuts coming loose, use locknuts, or a glue called lock tite.just a side note, you should mention how much you speed up the video just so it isnt misleading. ill see you on raceday . . . ill probably start building my robot on monday . . . oh man im in for some long nights . . .
but it will be the first time ever I will prepare a robot for outdoors activity and I feel like a begginer
I used a couple of cheap tricks to go around some issues, eg praying for good weather, lots of clouds, no rain
Somchaya, dont use felt for the sunshield. I tried it for a robot once and like three layers of the stuff still let in 30% of the sunlight . . . I find electrical tape to work VERY well, although its not as flexible . . .
actually, in my tests, i found that rain (wet pavement) actually makes sensing the line much better . . . assuming your robot doesnt fry . . .
