    What's your team number? Ours is 435, the Robodogs. We actually won the Richmond regional.
    Keep rule G22 (don't break the plane of a line you have crossed) in mind. It's vital, and made us win the final match!

    Anyway, good luck, hope you win. If you get to nationals I'll have to say hi!

    Oh, and I am the ROBOCOACH. [​IMG]

    Our team still hasn't gotten hybrid mode done yet, and we shipped the robot weeks ago. Lol.

    If you guys are into robotics, Robo-one might be something you like. This is the greatest robot ever. OmniZero.2 It's an amazing watch.

    edit youtube tags didn't work for me getting link.

    Our hybrid mode was amazing. We scored 16 points pretty much every round, and we scored 20 once. [​IMG]
    Have fun with the robocoaching [​IMG]

    We lost badly. [​IMG] Hoped that we would get picked at the end (we were in a similar situation last year, but got picked) but alas we did not.

    It was because our robot couldn't hurdle. And our hybrid mode was rushed. Just up, down, left, and right - not good at all.

    Wait, another team called the Robodogs was at our regional. You didn't happen to go to the Great Lakes Regional too did you? EDIT: No you didn't. So many teams using the same name. [​IMG]
