Hydraulics appeared to fail on chopsticks right before lift:

Booster 7 was then rolled away from the launch tower.

Well, whoops.

Booster 7 rolled out to the Launch Site, but the Chopsticks suffered a hydraulic failure preventing B7 from being lifted onto the Orbital Launch Mount.

Road closed, pad is clear. Ready for testing.

Pad under the OLM is certainly the clearest I've ever seen it.

Booster 7 moving into active testing. It's a mystery what testing they will conduct, from Spin Prime to Preburner to Static Fire (no overpressure notice at this time).
