Phase 1 Prototype Model is Complete
The first phase of four is ready to be built; it will purely test the launching mechanism, allowing us to verify our calculations regarding rpm of the fly wheels and trajectory. Full scale model, parts lists, and electronic schematics have been completed. We bought the mdf to create the frame on November 7, 2017, and is ready to be laser cut. The rest of the materials including motors, wheels, keyed axles, etc will be ordered on November 14, 2017. Construction will being on the 14th as well. The model does not include certain details such as key stocks, hubs, and bearings.
