FTC – 4390 Engineering Notebook

We are now currently modifications to the robot to improve its performance. We are changing the gear ratio of the flag raiser to make it spin faster.  Previously, we had a small:big ratio, but we reversed it to a big:small ratio.  At our competition, we discovered the the flag raiser system worked, but we were hoping it could work faster and raise the flag more quickly.  This way, we can raise the flag and hang during the end game.  Though you cannot see the flag raise in this picture, the gears are currently off and being reversed on the other side of the robot.
