Prototyping Radial Dump

We began prototyping for the radial dump. We created many designs to see which design could most effectively lift minerals into the lander.

Then, we discussed how much power would be required to lift an arm if it was holding two minerals, and also contemplated on various methods of sorting.

Decisions

We realized that we could lift the dump wih one servo motor, though it will be near the limits of its capabilities so we may need to use a motor.
