our team 7536 has started prototyping with a flywheel and compound gearing but the motors easily overheat does anyone have a solution.
The short version will be.
More motors and/or
Lower gear ratio and/or
But tell us more details about your flywheel.
It is horizontal has one Omni-wheels on each side I don’t know the gear ratio right now but can get it tomorrow.
I don’t think omni wheels are the best solution when making flywheel launchers. Mine and many that I have seen are using 5 inch,traction wheels…
yeah my coach has some in the mail. I just grabbed the first thing I saw but my main problem is the over heating though.
