pic: Balls Under the Bridge? No Sweat.

We discovered that Buzz 17 is still able to pull down and climb the bridge even if there is a ball underneath.

So, I have to ask what motors or system you’re using for your bridge manipulator? Systems refering to something non-motor actuated, meaning something along the lines of pneumatics or possibly gravity (Though highly unlikely)

Our bridge manipulator purposes only a single window motor.

The curvature of our lexan on our aluminum arm redirects the ramp downwards. The bumpers are used as a hard stop.

Victor, did you guys change your front wheels, those don’t look like plactions anymore? Could they be Colsons?

The front wheels have been replaced with 8" pneumatic.

Thinking of doing the same for the rear since we bent an axle at BAE.
