Our new phones have arrived! Jane is currently trying to configure them to the robot, but she seems to be running into some de-initialization problems and is figuring out how to solve them. The robot arm has been replaced by our fabulous new design, too :) And Benedict was right--it really does lift the robot up very quickly and quite smoothly. Hopefully nothing will malfunction at our second qualifier in two weeks.
Tomorrow, we're heading out to the Naval Academy in Annapolis to volunteer for the qualifier hosted by RM’D and Dangerous. Veronica is queuing the teams up for their matches, Jane is a field resetter, and JD is inspecting robots.
Our team actually used to host this qualifier back when we had more people on the team, but now that there's only four of us we don't have enough manpower to do that anymore.
We are the Droids, and we'll be keeping you updated on our progress.
