Arm Design

Here is a brief overview of the B9 arms for my robot

Basically they will move out using a drawer slide and 6" actuator remotely. The arms can move independently of each other. Then the Dewert motors will be activated to move the arms up and down (approx a 40-60 degree sweep). Using the arm with 12v power is too slow when compared to how Bob May moved his arms in the show. 24v yielded a much closer and safer facsimile.
