Nathan II - The Whale

This is the second robot built with my Vex Kit. My 3-year old brother started calling it a whale and the name stuck so... I'm using a two wheel direct connect motor drive for the back two wheels, the front two wheels are free. The arm uses an axle connected to a motor ziptied to the whale. The string is connected to a coller to the axle. The actual arm is connected to a shaft going all the way across the robot in between two collers. The motor turns, acting as a winch, tightens the string, lifts the arm. I got it to lift a sock. It wasn't that strong.
