So I’m going to talk about drive speeds in terms of m/s cause it’s way easier to compare drive speeds with different wheels and setups (x-drive)
Here’s a good calculator where you can enter wheel radius and rpm to get linear velocity
So generally speaking I’ve made relatively slower drives before change up:
1.50 m/s (only for a short time)
and for change up i’ve tried speeding stuff up:
It drives very well but after like 10 minutes or less. It just dies, it fairly suddenly slows down considerably. It stops driving straight etc. etc.
I’ve tried fixing it mechanically fixing friction etc. etc. but It free spins pretty well. But it is still a possibility that it is a mechanical problem,
I don’t know about you guys but this has never been a problem for me personally. even during cortex days, it has never been THIS bad. For turning point, our puncher would get tired. For tower takeover, our intakes would get tired but never our drives. We’d always be able to get 30 minutes or more of at least driving around at a time on these lower rpms. So in change up I’m on a new team with different parts and stuff so that’s why I might suspect it might be a motor/electronics thing. This team has probably been using the same motors since turning point likely being fixed in house, while on my old team our coach basically reserved a constant supply of new motors for us which was pretty poggers.
How much drive time do you guys usually get ?
