Building a dual flywheel launcher

So my team is planning on using some sort of flywheel launcher like was used in bank shot. The problem is we don’t know where to start. Any and all feedback+ideas is much appreciated.



I would suggest looking at robots from previous games such as Bankshot, Nothing But Net, and Turning Point for inspiration.

I would also recommend designing your robot/ideas in CAD before building it (there are so many topics and posts here about CAD for VEXIQ and I would recommend looking at those before you lost any questions about it here)


Maybe look at V5 since they had quite a few games with flywheels

also consider using gears and/or sprockets with rubber bands wrapped around them that seems to work too
