Day 11: More Testing

Relatively short build meeting, today.

We were able to make the next iteration on the shooter by adding a third motor to the top of the shooter. Tomorrow we will widen the wheels to make it more like a drum shooter.

We worked a little more on the low bar crossing geometry and how that effects the 15 in allowed extensions. It's feasible to cross under the bar with 15 in extensions out both sides of your robot.

We also improved the scaling test platform as well. We now added a powered motor to the wheels. They make pulling up the robot far easier. This should allow us to winch our selves up the wall even faster.

We have several CAD models of the drive train geometry coming together.
