How To Make the Ball Shoot Farther

My flywheel currently doesn’t shoot the tennis ball very far. Is there anything I could modify that would allow the tennis ball to go farther? (I’m using the v5 system also). I am unable to get a video uploaded. I’m using a 600RPM gear cartridge and a 7:1 gear ratio.

Try increasing the compression on the ball. Move that non-slip in a bit or add more. Or move the wheel itself.

I will be sure to try that.

It might just be me but the picture makes it look like you’re using a chained gear ratio which is gearing the speed down instead of up. If that is the case, try flipping the gears around for a faster flywheel. Also, maybe make sure your motor is spinning at 100% velocity
