Getting Wheelo Unstuck

A project log for Santa's Shop

This is a techno/art installation to be displayed in the community--similar to old time holiday window displays.

While performing some test runs, I noticed two or three times that the Wheelo got "stuck" in the up position. I changed the Arduino sketch so that:

When the arm is up, it will come down a) when the wheel is close or b) after eight seconds

The revised sketch is included in the files on this site.
