The positives to a front catapult is that you only need half of everything because the degrees of motion is basically half of what a backwards catapult is. I've only seen backwards catapults with 4 pistons and only front catapults with 2 pistons. Does that mean if someone gets a backwards catapult with 2 pistons a front catapult would only need one? :eek: Probably impossible if you're following the rules on pressure. The front catapult can also actually act as an assist to get big balls out quicker so you don't have to wait for intake to spit it out or if you can't get the ball out of your intake at all. I've found this to be helpful.
HEXBUG® believes in using the fun of robotic toys to teach kids important STEM principles through hands on learning. The VEX® Robotics Catapult™ feature two alternate builds for more robotic fun! All Catapult's™ construction pieces are compatible with educational VEX® IQ pieces to create your own custom VEX® robot and explore unlimited possibilities.

The catapult will capture the attention of many kids and when they see how it launches balls, they’ll cling to it. However, on the exact same note, it might be a little hard to set up in order to get the ball to launch. Children will need some patience in order to get it to work, but it is well worth it since as soon as it works, the youngsters are going to be impressed with how it carries out.

The VEX Catapult Toy helps you to introduce children to the world of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) through play. It has 100 pieces that are simple to put together and which stay in place for long-lasting models. This product comes with plans for three different sets, a race car, a trike and a catapult. The two balls provide ammunition for shots. Simply place one in the basket, crank the winch and fire. It has wheels that make it easy to roll around. You can use the parts to create models from your own imagination for even more creativity and fun. Use this toy to teach physics principles, as well as a history lesson as you describe how this Greek invention helped to modernize society.
Three teams in my club (mine included) are currently working to perfect our forward intake catapults which we've dubbed our rampapults. So far, none have had much success. The two teams that started working on them a few weeks ago have struggled a bit but I hear they've had some success in making them work over the break. I just got my pneumatics in the mail today so my team hasn't built ours yet but we have it designed and ready to build, so we'll see how it all goes once it's built and running.

My 8 year old built it in less than 20 min without my help. I didn’t even know he opened it. I was doing laundry and next thing I knew we had a catapult at the kitchen table. Didn’t ask for help or anything, no extra pieces. Too simple but worth the price I guess. It was one of the cheapest options I could find. With our local team going to worlds competition again he wanted to see what VEX was all about.
Alright guys over the months I have seen countless catapult designs each with their perks and then theres some that are just plain disappointing. Theres the forward catapult, backward catapult, the full arm catapult, forward intake catapult, backwards intake catapult. There are several more I dont remember at the moment. Which catapult do you guys believe is best and why?

My son received this as a birthday present when he was 4 years old. He was able to build most of this himself, with me reading the instructions for him. He loves playing with this and often takes it apart to build the car and different versions. Since then, I have ordered additional sets to give as gifts to his friends who are turning 5-10. This is a great alternative to Lego. This holds together very well and does not fall apart when he or his friends are playing with it.
Kids can put on their engineering hats and build the Vex Robotics Catapult, which launches plastic balls up to 10 feet. It comes with more than 100 easy-connect snap pieces and two balls. Once the catapult is assembled, turn the knob to bring the bucket of the catapult however far back you want. Use the launching lever to lock the bucket into place once the bucket has reached your desired angle. You can also change the angle at which the ball will fly by adjusting the T-shaped piece in the middle. Once set up, load a ball into the catapult and press down on the lever to launch. You can also drive the catapult around on its real-rolling wheels.

Every year, brand-new and better toys come out– we never ever truly understand what to anticipate. This year showed no various as significant toy business gathered during the toy fair in New York in order to demonstrate their soon-to-release toys. While there were many incredible toys that truly caught our attention, the one we are going to talk about today is the Hexbug Vex catapult.
In addition if someone has a 4/4/2 (four motor drive, four lift, two intake) setup then having 4 tanks on your robot for a backwards catapult is a lot of weight. The tanks aren't light so keeping your robot as lightweight as possible with only four motors on drive is essential. But then again team 1103 in Round Up had a rock solid robot that weighed nearly 20 lbs. (I believe he said this in a video somewhere, don't quote me on it) and had only 4 high speed motors on his drive. Very impressive!
