Smokey | 2019
Our robot for the 2019 FRC Season, named for when it started smoking at Lakeview, which is a FRC competition. It is capable of spearing hatch panels, picking up cargo, and raise to the third stage of the rocket.
FIRST Destination Deep Space
In DESTINATION: DEEP SPACE, Presented By The Boeing Company, we join two competing alliances collecting samples on Planet Primus. Unpredictable terrain and weather patterns make remote robot operation essential to their mission on the planet. With only 2:30 until liftoff, the alliances must gather as many cargo pods as possible and prepare their spaceships before the next sandstorm arrives.
Dragonbot is a long term project which has been worked on by the RatPack since 2013. Made from a frame so kindly loaned to us by FRC Team 3322 - Eagle Imperium, he has slowly become the heart and soul of our team. He's gone through many color changes and repairs but he's still going strong. Capable of opening his jaws, spreading his mighty wings to take flight, roaring (or, alternatively bleating like a goat), and breathing smoke; he is an unfaltering showstopper, and we bring him with us on most of our promotional visits to display what our team has to offer as well as to promote and advertise the FIRST community. Dragonbot is a beloved staple of this team, and is not expected to be leaving the show anytime soon.
