So we broke our lifter arm

We broke our lifter arm and decided to take apart most of the robot.  We made some drive train mods, made some bumper mods, made some turret mods and some shooter mods.  And we have driving practice tomorrow.  Let’s hope our die hard team of students who were kicked out school today because it was to late can get the robot repaired.

Also, we lost another day to snow since the school closed early on Friday.

Snow days

On top of that the shooter is not meeting our distance expectations.  When we were prototyping we were shooting 30 ft.  Now we are in the 12 foot range.  So trying to solve that mystery is also taking a lot of time.

On a positive, the award team was working on answering the team’s essay questions and getting our chairman’s award video done.
