This is the prototype for the shooter we will be using for our robot.
Looks good guys! Just a little more accuracy and you are spot on. Are you thinking of adding an encoder or anything to regulate the wheel speed?
There is an encoder controlling the motor speed. Currently it is running at about 75% of maximum speed. We also tuned the release angle so that we will be shooting with our bumper pressed up against the boiler for a more reliable shot.
