All systems going for 599 Robodox 2013 Ultimate Ascent robot prior to bagging for competition

Prebag weekend was long but fruitful.  The kids and mentors put in about 12 hrs a day Sat, Sun and Mon to integrate and test all the systems prior to bagging the robot.  I must say, the shooter performance looked great… the Frisbee shots were fast and accurate.  The autonomous startup time including shooter spin up and firing 3 Frisbees was about 5 seconds which leaves us about 10 seconds to pick up and score two more.    It takes about 4 seconds for a ground Frisbee to reach the magazine so things are looking up for autonomous.
