My Roli has been reconfigured with the cup holder in front. The arms can now pick and place objects.
I'm having fun!

Robojack,
Great work, excellent robot, and impressive demonstration.
Your flight videos are even more impressive!

I'm having to completely rebuild Roli in my Assembly Instructions. I had the program freeze up on me just as I was finishing. Too bad, too tired to retry tonite. I'll get on it again tomorrow. Thanks again to all for your encouraging comments.

Just uploaded my reimagined Roli. Look for the title ROLI CUP FRONT. I noticed the HBridge wiring guide did not load correctly.

Thanks for this. As usual, I was overthinking the problem, trying to use camera pan tilt in combination with tracking with the whole robot. Much easier to just set the camera in a fixed position and track with the body. When I perfect that, I can add in searching with the camera and lining up, then using the body to approach the object.

I also really like reversing the H-bridge and having the storage in the front.

I am going to incorporate some of these ideas in my next rebuild.

I totally get "overthinking the problem". I entered a sumo competition awhile ago and had what I thought was a superior strategy programmed into my bot. I lost my first and only round to a 10yr old in :30 seconds!
