Thanks Buzz (Team 175) for lending us their minibot!
During the 2011 WPI Regional event Team 2168 (The Aluminum Falcons - Groton, CT) and Team 236 (The Techno Ticks - Lyme, Old Lyme, CT) ended up on the same alliance in the finals. They worked together to get 2168's minibot onto 236's deployment mechanism. The results look promising.

A video documenting the efforts of Team 2168 during the 2009 FIRST Robotics Competition. Our teams goal was to improve our robots maneuverability on the field by installing a gyro. Implementing this feature required numerous prototypes in an effort to improve the performance of the design. Ultimately a simple flywheel with single axis tilt control was used.
