Not quite up up and away yet

Design is iterative, right?

Looks like we’ve got some 1-day iterations to do. 

Floor loader wouldn’t pick up under its own power.  As light as those manipulators are, we thought it would be a breeze, but the denso motor is really struggling to pick it up.  Silly moment arm physics.

Bumpers are almost done – just a couple more to color.  They do look quite nice.

Tomorrow’s a huge day – we’ve got to get our lift-lifter mounted and running, our floor loader figured out, and deployment – well, that’s a whole other story.  We’ve kind of fallen off the deployment train a bit, we certainly need to get some minds set on that tomorrow. 

Good news is we’ve got the electrical 90% done, now it’s just tweaking time.  Muncie or Bust!
