Hey Vex Forum, I need help with my catapult. I’m making a launcher similar to a catapult but I can’t seem to figure out how to get a bucket that would allow the ball to sit in. Please help! Also, should I make my arm block light (what is the ideal weight). Any sort of help is greatly appreciate from my team.
We use a scoop made of a 12x5x1x1 c-channel and four standoffs in the corners. This has provided us with a very consistent shooter (99% accuracy when I can aim). The mass of the arm is mostly irrelevant, since you can add elastics to achieve the same launch velocity, but lighter is better.
