Saturday November 5th, our 3 FTC Teams (White – 5292, Red – 6482 and Blue – 10031) will compete in the first week of FIRST in Michigan’s FTC qualifiers in Big Rapids, MI. All three teams have a completed robot, some level of autonomous modes, and very excited teammates.
We’ll post photos and videos from the competition.
Once again Red Storm FRC and FTC demoed at the Grand Rapids Mini Maker Faire on August 20th & 21st. We shown off our 2013 FRC Robot, 2016 FRC Robot and our FTC-sized Summer Session Frisbee robots. One robot shot Frisbee, another would pick them off the floor and score them into the goal using pneumatics and the 3rd would pick them off of the floor and score them using a motorized arm.

“I’m very excited this year for the first tech challenge. Especially because its my first year. I’ve made many new connections since the Kickoff, I’ve also seen some old friends. And even some of my friends at school today.” -Alex
