2015-2016 Res-Q

G.B.-R. Edmund

Meet our robot for the 2015-2016 FTC season, the GB-R Edmund, named in tribute to Sir Edmund Hillary, the first man to summit Mount Everest. The name is very fitting to 2015-2016 challenge, FIRST Res-Q. The robot’s design incorporates six wheels and a suspension system very similar to the Mars rovers.
