Out of Bag Day 3: “Climb” testing

We spent our first three hours (out of six) of our out of bag time today. During this time, we focused primarily on attaching parts of our withholding allowance, practicing picking up cargo from the ground, and adding a few sensors.

We also tested how well Raven can climb using intake to lift herself up. This proved to be surprisingly effective. The slight caveat is that we had two mentors lifting the back of Raven while we were testing. Despite this minor detail, we still plan on employing this strategy during competition.
