Specifically, I’m trying to figure out if I can get away with using the standard green gears (not high strength) and other plastic parts with V5 motors. I’ve just taken over this program at my school, and we have a very good supply of the Cortex-based systems - parts, motors, batteries, brains, etc - a LOT of this stuff - which, it appears to me, is rapidly becoming obsolete, in favor of the V5 system.
I do have a few V5 clawbot kits in house, so I’m getting familiar with it as I’m also learning the legacy systems, and it seems that the metal parts are pretty much the same, so no worries there, it seems to be no problem there.
Bottom line - am I going to need to stock up on new, high strength gears, sprockets, etc. in all of the various sizes, or can I get away with running with what I’ve got on hand?
Also - is there any way to run a legacy clawbot claw with a V5 motor? I’ve got about 20 of those claws floating around here - it would be nice to be able to keep using them after we fully switch over to V5.
