I am trying to build my own heavy lifting VTOL. I have already gotten the frame done. All that left is the propulsion system, but I am running into a few difficulties here.
Hoverballs. They don’t seem to like advanced duplicators. As soon as I unfreeze the VTOL it tries to shake itself apart. Is this a common issue?
I have devised a pick up system using forcer, ranger, grabbers and a few logic gates. Right now the system is activated with a button. The forcer pulls the object up, and as soon as the object is in range of the grabbers, the forcer is deactivated while the grabber is activated. Most of the time it works perfectly. However, occasionally when the grabber is activated, the weight of the object drags the grabbers downward, and the range increases so the grabbers deactivate.
So the question is this - is there a way to build a logic system so that the grabbers will activate when the range is <50, but once activated will continue to remain activated until a switch is flipped.
The VTOL is looking kinda empty in the present. It has wire turrets, wire forcers and grabbers. Any brilliant suggestions will be accepted gratefully.
Thank you very much.
