Flywheel Continued 9/11/18

This week we continued developing the flywheel, restarting the design for the mechanism. At the end of last week we took apart the previous design and began to build the current design (seen below). Because the previous version of the launcher was too wide the ball used in the arena would not sit properly inside the pathway and therefore needed to be changed. This new launcher will be able to guide the ball properly towards the flywheel allowing us to launch the ball within the arena as well as be within the robot size guidelines.
