New deployment

Looks good ken.
Much like 1114.
Advantages are what and disadvantages.
Adv. probably lighter, simpler, less parts to break
disadvantages no y at end to allow for misalignment. This could be added.
is it necessary at this point with one tournament left.

The current lexan "y" would be attached to the bottom of the ramp with rivets, I didn't draw that in. The spherical bearing attached to the ramp will allow for allow for pivoting.
The main advantage I see in this design is fewer moving parts, and almost no likelihood of binding. Also if we were to smash another tower, this could still deploy.
I was thinking of surgical tubing and a latch to fold the ramp down for one shot, or it could be done pneumatically.
Making this system shouldn't be harder than adapting our current system to a ramp. All the parts used are kop items we should have.

I agree not hard to make but is it necessary?

To pivot left and right you said spherical bearing, I do not understand, explain it to me tomorrow.
A simple pivot point on the round tub is all that is needed (a bolt)
