Catch and Release

“Catch and Release” is a must-have GBC! You will for sure see this module designed by Akiyuki (or a module derived from it) in all GBC exhibitions. Its 4 rotating arms catch any available ball in the downstairs platform and release them on the top platform in a simple but so smart way.
Gotta catch (and release) ’em all!

  1. Hey, I’m new to GBC – can anyone explain the function of the red lever near the gears in this build? My only guess is that it’s to protect the module from running the engine in the wrong direction. Or is that totally off?

    1. hello Asekio,

      welcome to GBC and to Planet GBC
      the red lever near the gears on this module is to block the mechanism in case you make the rotor of the M-motor turn in the wrong direction.

      enjoy
