I’m doing an eight bar lift, but I’ve seen that without the arms raised, the lift’s lenght is over 45 and this is not allowed. Do you know how to do an eight bar lift which will raise the necessary height without surpass 45 cm in its repose position?
Not to be rude but i cannot imagine a 2 motor 8 bar holding 3 cubes and being efficient , do you have any videos of it lifting up in a reasonable time. I personally have a 4 motor DR4B, and i can lift up in 1.8 seconds. So i think a reasonable time would be 3 seconds. But that is with 4 motors and a pneumatics.
They actually held 3 cubes with 2 motors and an 8 bar lift in a few competitions after that, but in the last competition I saw with them, they switched back to a 2 cube intake. I could see their arm dying when they held 3 to put on the skyrise at once, when they did.
I think making a compound gear ratio a bit torquier than a 1:7 would be great for doing 3 cubes.
