Will there be a recommended starting poisition for the Purple Dispenser ejection arm??

John Yamashita (Event Partner)

The ejection arm position could impact the speed at which a robot can empty the Purple Dispenser.

For example if the ejection arm is horizontal it takes over one complete rotation of the Octagonal Handle before the ejection arm contacts a disk; and a further 1.5 rotations to eject the disk.

More detail - in CAD renderings - are being sent to the GDC via email.
