Mini Robot Reveal?

#1

Ok bois back at it again with the beyond subpar robot videos!

I guess you could also call this a leek, but I dont care.

it actually looks pretty good for a single motor. if there was a way to balance the torque across the two sides better then I could see this being a potential design for teams that want to add another mechanism to their robot.

We just took off the motor for testing purposes. The right side was leading significantly, so we are troubleshooting. I was quite surprised by how well a single motor could run it, especially at the gearing.

if you’re interested in balancing the torque with one motor, you could power a motor in the middle and have a c-channel transfer the torque to the sides of the lift

Long story short, im not running the lift with one motor.

Not required. You can definitely pull off a 1:5 dr4b with a HS shaft running the width of the lift.

Obviously, we all see the problems with this setup. I think we could use a High strength shaft to power both sides at once, instead of only powering one side. That would make it much more stable.

In that case you will likely be cutting yourself short as you are using 3+ motors specifically to have the ability to score high poles for just 4 more points. If youre going #capgang then you should make your scoring system be no more than 2 motors to go with a 2 motor flag scoring mech or 6 motor drivetrain, to have something else to contribute other than caps as caps are underscored in the game. :slight_smile:
