FIRST Aerial Assist


Running the ball down the field during a match.

Cynder was our 2014 competition season robot. It had a six wheel drop center west coast drive train with six traction wheels. It featured a roller bar that raised and lowered to gather the yoga balls into the frame and a spring powered catapult to launch them. Cynder was able to launch the balls over the truss as well as into the high goal with ease. Using its gatherer, it was also capable of ejecting balls directly into the low goal. Cynder was so successful, we qualified for the 2014 FRC World Championship in St. Louis.
