FTC and FRC at Duel on the Delaware: October 13, 2012
One team had a lot of fun with this
year's FRC scoring element.
On Saturday, October 13, 2012, TechBrick's FRC and FTC teams attended the Duel on the Delaware, at Salem Community College in NJ and sponsored by MOE265. DOTD is an annual off-season scrimmage for FRC and learning session for FTC teams, many who are seeing the full size field for the first time.
Our FRC team took its 2012 robot out for its last run for 2012 before beginning a full rebuild for the upcoming season. This year's members are stepping up and mastering tasks handled by members who have moved on to college. All our work for the past 12 months culminated in our cleanest run. The robot performed well in all rounds with no glitches and just one broken chain. We also made our first autonomous goal!
Our FTC 7 team, now largely rookies, had a great time on their first team event. They enjoyed the help of many of the experts in attendance including our good friend, Dave Spangler of Under the Son Robotics. They were able to complete their test robot and get it programmed and operational. They are now energized and excited about tackling a fully featured robot for this year's challenge.
