Recap of last week to now (Build Day 12)

Over the last week the team has been working on prototyping all of the various subsystems for our robot. Currently we have been working on (and making significant progress in): Fuel Intake, Fuel Cage, Gear Intake, Drive Train, Fuel Shooter, and Gear Deposit mechanisms. Thanks to the team being very active during the early days of the Build Season, we have made a lot of progress in the prototypes and CADing of the parts for the robot and have been keeping ourselves on schedule.

Today: The cage for carrying the fuel was being tested with the intake mounted as well as testing/mounting the gear intake along with pneumatic lifting for up-righting the gear to be placed on the peg in the airship.
