I haven't worked on the cocktail robot in a while, but i have been busy! I built a case full of a r-pi and radios and stuck it on my roof. It contributes to flightaware.com: https://imgur.com/a/xepw7x2
Man do my side projects move slowly!
I've 3d printed a mount for the loadcell, i just need to mount it, and then build a platform that will hold the glasses that is suspended by the loadcell. Hopefully i will get that done this weekend.
In the meantime I've started making a faux neon sign from the movie "Cocktail" 😂

I'd like to take a moment to praise d-sub connectors (DB-25 etc). They're awesome. I'm surprised by the current they can handle every time I look it up. You can't connect them backwards and they're easy to solder to.
All of the motors on the Cocktailor are powered through a DB-25. A lot of my model planes have DB-9s in them to connect wings etc.
