This year, we decided to use pneumatic wheels for extra grip. To intake cargo, Bucky had a pneumatically deployable arm that spun compliant wheels. The cargo would then go into the uptake, and then the shooter, which shot the cargo into the lower or upper hubs. Bucky also had to climbing arms for climbing onto the lower and middle rungs.
