Robotic Arm

1. Attach the Arm to the Rover

Put the Arm on top platform of the rover aligning two holes on the Arm base to the Rover upper platform 2x M5 fixing holes. See that one of the platform fixing holes is marked and out of grid.
Tighten the connection using 2x M5 screws and the screwdriver provided. Manually set the arm in an uppermost position to gain access to the holes.

2. Connect to the servo adapter
