More Arm Drive Pics











Here's the last pics I'll show of the drive because I'm going tho mount it for good.
All the parts used to build this drive is in the Vex Kit. It's very simple and could probly be improved. There's only 2 things I wish would have turned out alittle different.
I would have liked to stay with the larger gear in the drive, It held alittle better.
And I would have liked to use a Vex servo instead of a Vex motor, I'll have to be careful not to lift the arm to far. I may add a limit switch to the drive, But that will have to be later.
At any rate, This drive will work in just about any frame because the A&A is limited on space.
