Servo Stall Currents PDF Print E-mail
Written by Evan Hollins   
Tuesday, 30 September 2014 17:23

A big rule change this year added the ability to use as big of a servo as possible while still staying under 5 amps per servo controller at stall. Unfortunately, many of the servos we commonly use didn't have documented stall currents. To find these, we contacted ServoCity™ and asked them what to do. They were able to talk to HiTec© and retrieve stall currents for many of the servos that they make. Here they are in a table shown below. 

We would like to thank ServoCity and HiTec for helping not just us but all of FTC!

We have just arrived in St. Louis, pulling up right in front of the NASA trailer! Wednesday is load in and judging, and Thursday, Friday, and Saturday are matches. Looking forward to seeing all of our friends from around the world and playing robots! We are in the Edison Division (will probably be listed as division 2 on the live stream page).

Live streams to all of the FTC events will be posted here.

Good luck to everyone competing this week!

Build a Better Bot Workshop with Patronum Bots PDF Print E-mail
Written by The Cougars   
Wednesday, 18 September 2013 08:33

On August 31st we got together with the Patronum Bots at their home base in East Troy, Wisconsin to put on our Build a Better Bot workshop. It was an all day event, and 12 teams attended, coming from Wisconsin and surrounding states. Throughout the day, we discussed topics such as game and robot analysis, mechanical and wiring practices, and static electricity. Along with topics about the robot, we also went over scouting and showed teams how we pick teams at tournaments. Near the end of the day, we held an “open work time” with several stations of hands-on activities. These included double drilling channel, creating static spray, switching from tamiya connections to anderson powerpoles, and making static detectors.

Check out the videos in the Build a Better Bot workshop playlist created by the Patronum Bots.
