locomotion mechanics & electronics tested

The new locomotion mechanics are now finally assembled. The drive electronics fortunately works exactly as expected. Both the main drive and the flipper run perfectly.

Now, the PC part (which has already arrived before and is tested) has to be added.

final missing pieces just arrived...

The final missing pieces for the two robots just arrived. They took much longer due to delays in the supply chain (first wrong delivery 0f aluminum raw material, then severe vacation delay for some CNC processing of a few parts).

But now they are all here and the robots can be finished...
