Introducing YellowBot_02

A long time ago I posted YellowBot, a little robot built in one day. I am now ready to introduce YellowBot_02.

YellowBot_02 is a robot designed to compete in MiniFRC 2019, a quarter-scale version of the FIRST Robotics Competition hosted by the TerrorBytes (FRC team 4561). Design based on the full-size 2019 FRC robot by the RoboGladiators (FRC team 6426). The competition this robot was designed for is a 1/4-scale version of the FRC 2019 game, Deep Space. This particular bot is designed to transport “cargo” (2.25″ plastic ball pit balls) into the “cargo ship” (an elevated depository).

Below is a video of this bot competing in MiniFRC. If you want to see more MiniFRC (including more of this bot), this playlist has many of the matches.
