Flagploe Climber

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread

Build a device to climb a flagpole, the flagpole would ofcourse be tapered or stepped. would have to ring a bell at the top and return to the bottom without destroying itself. Gas vs Electric, first up and down wins. Could utilize a straight pole, but, then it should be greased.

What a cool idea! I bet it would really have to be a simple, straight, ungreased pole, though. But would it be remotely controlled?

A straight ungreased pole would be to easy, anyone could do that.

It should be straight, greased, and they can't us a remote control; it has to do it by its self! (Not to hard, but very interesting)
