20 Motor V5 Pushbot

I’m just imagining the highest torque you can get… 1:7, 1:7, 1:7… slow but probably able to break limbs

I wonder how many v5 motors you would need to build one of these:

Is that the V5 beta system, and do you have a video of it actually moving?

If you used pwm 3wire output to drive motor controllers, you could get some beefy battlebots-level motors+controllers and basically make an autonomous electric go kart.

Vex Robotics Competition:
MarioKart

MarioKart is played on a 1 x 1 mile square field. The goal? Get to the finish line first with your alliance. You can use shells against the opposing alliance. Do not throw shells at other drivers.

The shells are the caps from last year, just painted different colors

I know we did this for our KOP chassis & cortex in frc last year, do you think it’s possible this year using V5?

We used 2 mini cims and a small electronics board to make a testing and prototyping chassis. Before that we stuck a chair to it for fun.

Wouldn’t it be hilarious if there was a video of this robot defending its territory from a household pet or Roomba?

why does your brain screen look so weird?

That’s V5 Beta Hardware… it shipped in a light grey and white color scheme

Much better than the current ones imo

Who was given the beta hardware?

You had to apply for it and it was used for classroom applications
