So the entire robotics team kinda collectively screwed up today. · 11:40pm Dec 6th, 2017

We were literally one part away from finishing the robot for this Saturday's AMES competition, but then what happens?

Turns out nobody bothered to look at the datasheets for the two motors used for the ball launcher, and we ended up pushing 40 amps through a motor designed to start at 1.8 amps , with around 12 amps at tops.

Commence magical purple smoke of death and two fried motors.
