09/02 – Falcons Show Their Talons

Today in engineering, we worked on Veronica, Clockwork, and some other miscellaneousĀ things around the build space. On Veronica, we changed a talon, opened a gearbox to replace its wave washer, and adjusted the swing on the gearbox motors. On Clockwork, we took off a winch motor to test different stages on it for the most effective climb and created a Lexan guard for the winch because the old on had been broken. Around the build space, we created a shelf, organized the space, and disassembled Veronica’s old hopper for spare parts.
