Flywheel Motors Cutting Out

Hi Everyone,

Our robot is currently using two 393 motors to drive two flywheels (one motor per wheel) which will be shooting our ball for the nothing but net competition. The gear ratio for one motor is something like 26:1.

During our testing process we encountered a critical error. Our motors do not run at top speed for a desired amount of time and usually cut out (begin slowing down until completely stopping) about half way through (around 5 seconds). We wait about 2 minutes before restarting our tests but the motors keep cutting out. We have even tried replacing the motors.

Does anyone know whats going on, and how we can approach the situation to resolve the issue? Thanks a lot! :slight_smile:
