Periscope Lift



I know this thing looks huge, But it not and it will get reduced where the bulk is not needed.
I plan to have this activate by a Light Sensor in the dome.
It will raise the Periscope then pan left/right then lower the Periscope.
I'm getting alot of help from a fellow Vex user and it's very nice of him to do this for me.
Well, Here's the Pics!

HOLY UPDATES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

BAM!


Looking great....periscope, arms...amazing!

I can't wait for the day I ask you to help me with the RC on my R2. You are my "go to" guy! All I will do it have his dome turn..and he'll move around (so 2 foot drives). I have the 2 scooters....So I guess I just need to reassemble them in the feet (which arent done yet) and wire them to an RC system??

Anyways..I will have to make my feet first.

GREAT PROGRESS MAN!!!!!
