Day 42: PM Running

Over the past few days, we were able to get PM fully assembled (minus climb, and laserCANs), and wired. We also made our first set of bumpers of the year (4 more sets to go FM and Photon).


We noticed our launcher was pulling a lot of current even though this was built better than alpha. Each motor was drawing 50A at full power. After some tweaking, we removed the redundant belts to remove drag from the system and got the current down to 30A per motor. Still have some more changes to go before we are happy with it.
