FTC Team Arrowhead – Build Blog Week Four

Oct 17


The chassis kit had finally arrived, and the engineers were ready to work with the parts as they had been waiting for the kit since last Friday. They started working on the chassis in hopes of finishing. While they did not finish, the members were successful in constructing the metal base along with attaching the motors (or at least 3 of the motors). Today’s building process went pretty smoothly. However the members who were trying to screw the motor in had trouble with one of the motors as the screw was going in at an angle rather than going in straight.

Engineers sorting out parts and discussing timeline 


The programmers wrote code for the right wheel and then the left wheel so that the robot could spin. They were extremely content with their work and were excited to code for the final product.
