Break down the task

Before you begin coding, it is important to understand the behaviors needed for Fling to complete the task of launching two Balls into the High Goal from different distances by adjusting the tension of the Catapult Tension Motor.

Watch this video to break down the behaviors of the robot needed to complete the task.

Build the project

First, launch web-based VEXcode IQ. Then add blocks to build the project yourself, or open the example project below.
