CALL FOR HELP!

Atom is bringing hist Baxter Robot. Unfortunately the main drive is bad and the software is very hard to find. We can all take a look at his new robot and maybe brain storm some ideas to get it up and running.

In addition we will be installing the second encoder on the club robot.

Meetings are now on the Second Saturday of the month.

In Memoriam

Mike Moody
Previous president of Robomo and known to some as Windfield Mike, passed away on May 14th, 2020.

I’ll miss Mike. I never saw him in a bad mood. He could find the positive in any situation. He was generous with his time and his knowledge. Mike didn’t want a funeral. He wanted 1/2 his ashes put on an island in the Bahamas and 1/2 sent into space. That’s so Mike!

– Tom D.

Mike is pictured on the right. He’s holding ROBOMO-1, the near space balloon he constructed. After he recovered it from a mission into the stratosphere, 19 miles above sea level.

If you would like to say something nice about Mike please post on our forum at: https://discourse.robomo.club/t/in-memoriam-of-mike-moody/127
