How to accomplish a drop mission with a Drop attachment. Video tutorial with LEGO MINDSTORMS Robot Inventor Pro Preview

In this video tutorial we demonstrate an attachment that can accomplish Drop missions. A drop mission is when you have to move on the FIRST LEGO League field with the robot, reach a mission model, and drop a part in this mission model. First time we saw such missions I think was in FLL 2013. The attachment, the robot and the mission model could be build from a single LEGO MINDSTORMS Robot Inventor 51515 set. The mechanism for dropping works by releasing a lever when the attachment is pushed against the mission model. Check them out.

What to do with this tutorial?

Take a single 51515 set and build the robot, attachment and mission model. Download the programs from the lesson to the robot. Experiment with accomplishing the mission. Place the mission model close to the robot. Then experiment with building a similar attachment but for larger objects, something that could drop a large wheel for example and not a small wheel.
