pic: 1683 Robot Extended

Here is our fully extended arm and you can kinda see a little of our robot lift in the right corner.

Nice bike-- dang! You got shocks, pegs… lucky! You ever take it off any sweet jumps?

I saw your other picture. It looks good. How does your gripper work? Is looks sturdy but heavy-- does it make the elevator jerk around much (plus I see that there’s not much overlap on the sections of elevator)?

Thats actually my moms bike. Mines even sweeter! The gripper works by sliding down a track with a lead screw and locking a tube in. It is a little heavier than we would like but it works well. We might cheese hole it some more once we get to our first regional but who knows. As for the elevator it only sways a tiny bit. Our base is so strong and low( really low cg) and the arm is mounted pretty strongly so it doesn’t sway much even with the somewhat heavy gripper.
