The models I have tested work well, but I don't see high use situations until the tournaments start.

The Field Setup, page 15, reminds us:

Mission Models – Keep the Models in original condition by straightening and tightening solid connections often. Ensure that spinning axles spin freely by checking for end-to-end play and replacing any that are bent. 

This is something that the referees are reminded to check frequently.

Ours has that problem too.  If we really tighten up all of the connections, it works for a while, but its is definitely a little fickle.

Hello All...

For those doing the Sorter mission, can anyone tell me if once the bars are deposited they slide down to the bottom to the up-and-down bars on their own?  Ours kind of stay in place without sliding once they're deposited.  I was just wondering if something is wrong with the way ours is built or if that's the way it's intended to work.

Thanks much!
