I don’t know how far apart the wheels will need to be. So instead of printing out something with exact (and incorrect) measurements, why not make something adjustable? This will let the motors slide, then get locked into place when I find the right spacing.

One clockwise, one counter.
Plus a ping-pong ball.
The motor ended up getting flung further than the ping-pong ball.
Hmmm. Needs work.

I haven’t done a Crazy Weekend Project lately.
It’s a long weekend.
Therefore, let’s try to build a robot army.
Or at least one robot with a weapon.
If you count a Ping-Pong ball shooter a weapon.
