I am building a flywheel, and was wondering what gear ratio/ amount of motors do you need, I was thinking a 600rpm on a 7:1 ratio, but don’t know if that would have enough speed to launch a tennis ball
That should have more than enough speed.
I assume you mean 7:1 geared for speed btw, not 7:1 geared for torque.
Back in Turing point my team who did flywheels did 35:1 which is enough to shoot full field
green – 200RPM
