Frisbee Launcher Presentation

The team with the Frisbee launcher:

Finishing the design and testing

After making sure that there were no other problems with our prototype we proceeded with completing the  frame. Our idea to make it mobile is to build some kind of a frame like a wheelbarrow. We used an old bike frame and we decided to have at at 4 feet high.
