Problems with accelerating flywheel

Hello, this is Parker from team 9364C, I have come to inform the general public about the new spin up winning meta. Have you ever had issues with acceleration with your flywheel. Well we have found the solution, 3 motors on your flywheel. We tested this by competing at the mall of America signature event. We overall have come to the conclusion that 3 motor flywheels are over powered. Will be adding more, thank you

Just wait and see VEXU teams this season. I wouldn’t be surprised to see 4+ motors on flywheels this season.

/s but 9364C op MOA champs on top

Can confirm 3m flywheel is why they won moa after talking with Parker

good idea, adding an additional motor will provide even greater acceleration

seems op, ill keep this in mind while designing my robot

Yes, adding an additional 2 Moters gave us an unexpected upper hand over 4082B.

Of course, only thing is that it keeps you from having a 6 motor drive, unless you do some wacky pto to the flywheel

6m flywheel, 2m drive pto to intake will be meta

Nah, who needs a 2 motor drive? 7 motor flywheel and 1 motor pto to drive

Like the signature event champ says, 3 motors is best and more are probably better. I’d suggest others do the same

Yeah I agree with the OP my team is considering doing 3-4m but more heavily leaning towards 4 motors.

Yep, 3 motor flywheel is the last season meta

highly considering 3m flywheel with 600 rpm 2.75 drive after watching MOA. I think these two specific components allowed for 9364C and 515R to win and nothing else.

3 motors flywheel bad, 5 motors flywheel OP.

Thanks for the advice! I put 39.4 Flywheel Weights on my robot and was having difficulty accelerating my flywheel to max speed. Your recommendation helped, so I decided to take it further and run a 7 motor flywheel with a 1 motor turret. It works great!

Drivetrains fr overrated just use an 8m flywheel with pto to intake

Adding a 3 speed transmission for greater acceleration

So YOU’RE the reason the flywheel weights are all out of stock
