So our robot has been working perfectly fine over the last month.
It’s has a 6 motor drive among various other things, but the drive is our main concern right now.
So, i was messing around with the autonomous and stuff. I didn’t run it, i just saved it for later. Later when i tried driving it (note, i didnt change the driver code at all), the back two motors suddenly stopped working even though they are assisted via chain to other motors.
i smell something burning.
i tested the motors in the ports of the other working motors... Ta da! it still doesn’t work.
The other 4 motors on our drive were fine, but for some reason these two have been acting up.
tldr; two motors arent working anymore and i smell something burning.
I know i’m gonna replace the motors anyways, but does anyone have an idea as to what the problem could be? (Like, is it the motor controllers, motors themselves, etc.?)
Thanks in advance :^)
