NOTE- there will be some changes to be implemented by way of the withholding allowance:

- new claw; the one in the video was a prototype. the new one will have an analog encoder help with tube grip (precise position monitoring).

- new arm, complete with a multi-turn potentiometer (for height pre-sets)

- new wrist, with analog encoder for presets

- working slide-out minibot launcher with minibot.

Once we have preset heights, the arm will be MUCH faster. In the video the arm was being run at about 60% power if I remember correctly. it will also be able to hit the top tier with the improved grip.

This bot will be at Bolilermaker regional and at World.
