Build Log 45: The end is near

We're coming to close of the 2012 build season only 1 day left and we have to put the robot in the bag.

We spent the day doing final changes to the competition bot, we fixed a few collection issues we noticed during the scrimmage this weekend and we also made a new camera mount.

The collector is nice a speedy now, it's 1.4 secs from the ground to the shooter. We have had it faster but the torque it has right now prevents some of our jamming issues.

The drive train is working great with the addition of the counter weight. It can turn on a dime with ease.

The programming team is still working on several automation issues and we are beginning to design our custom control panel.  Both these tasks will carry over to the pre-competition season.

Tomorrow we will put the decals on the robot and demo it on two different occasions. We should have some more photos and videos up after that.
