All considered, I'm thrilled it works as well as it does. If I were to do it again (which I'm NOT going to), I'd probably use something sturdier for the pole so it doesn't shake so much... and maybe re-design the gears in the gearbox. They work pretty well, but they tend to slip if I go in reverse...
Now go check out the still pictures and the video!
