Event Results / BattleBots Season 3
« Last post by Mattiator on April 14, 2019, 03:24:09 pm »
BattleBots Season 3, all one-on-one fight results, with the exception of USA vs. The World and grudge matches, as to the best of my knowledge these weren't official tournament fights. Thanks to IceWaveSquared on the OOTA discord for putting this together.

It looks like we both got some inspiration from Silent Spring and wound up with some strikingly similar bots. 

Maybe if all 3 of us make it to Franklin this year we can have a battle of the 3D printed undercutters!

I remember being impressed by Event Horizon by then so its good to see you make new cool things! Hopefully you can go to Franklin in October or some other insect event in the summer and we can see more of your stuff! The Arduino was also a nice touch to mix the channels. I know Fingertech also has the tinyMixer if you ever need to shrink your footprint, but otherwise excellent work!

Super happy to see you back at it. I thought Event Horizon was awesome in 2016 and since you ended up going to GT I kinda got excited (BSME, BSEE 2013 woot woot!).

I dig the name too, although it sounds like yall called it Event Horizon on the stream anyway, haha.

I built a new beetleweight and brought it to the Robojackets 20th Anniversary Competition yesterday. Its name is Impulse Response and it's an undercutter with inspiration taken from Silent Spring. I'm really happy with this design and it was pretty cheap and easy to make.

The full build report is here: https://ericwchin.blogspot.com/2019/03/impulse-response.html

It's been a while since I've done any combat robotics stuff, but it's good to be back.

Just updated the post to include Llama Sheen. I know I missed a bunch of stuff but I do have more pics on my team page on Facebook (@canadiancarnage) but feel free to ask away any questions you may have. Figured this could also help create some conversation here.

With all the mess of facebook over it, I concluded the people complaining (non of which compete in the class) basically think its against the spirit of the rules to build a bot with the sole purpose of winning. The rules are also quite clear what kind of wedges are and are not allowed, so I don't get why people hate on legal wedged features. I actually did a rough sketch of a more wedgy yet totally legal configuration but elected to not post it to avoid the mess it would create. At the end of the day we're all here having fun and don't have any issues with either of your teams sportsman entries, other then they're so hard to beat :P I felt those 2 fights were the closest I had all event, and it was a blast. I sent you a pm here a while ago btw

We also had issues with people complaining about Aeriform and Flip Special being wedge bots and not Sportsman compliant robots. There are at least two points that make that pretty funny though:

1.) Each robot has at LEAST 0.125" (if not 0.375"+ on Aeriform and inches on FS) clearance at all times on the wedge portions.
2.) The first point of contact on both bots IS the weapon.

If you rewatch Flip Special and Aeriform's fights, there were only a select few times where the wedges even came into play like in the match of Llama Sheen and Flip Special. IIRC you drove over Flip Special like a ramp for a monster truck!

However, in all honesty I could see issues with passive tines meant to immobilize that reach out passed the weapon. To each his own though, as long as it is 100% for functionality for the weapon to work or stability, I don't see there being too much of a gray area about the whole thing.

agreed, running a small lower voltage pack for drive with rb70's or aerostar 60's if you run 4s should result in more reliable drive. I know I complain a lot about running dual voltage since it adds a lot of wiring, it is great for some things.

The SimonK red brick 70A controllers have been rock solid for me on drive in the sportsman. I'm running 4x Afro 30A escs in Hyperpolarized (with four motors) and it is way faster than the shell drag will let me control. They don't even get warm.  It sounds like you're way overkill on your drive ESCs to me, and that should free up space as you say.

I feel your pain on fitting stuff in. Darn this optimization stuff..
