Will you include the motor allocation process when you explain this? Our team is really having debates on where to use the motors, and if we should scrap 2 for pneumatics. Most of the discussion has gone to a debate between 2 more motors on the drive vs. 2 more motors on the lift. Looking forward to seeing what you all made this along with @meng 8059 team’s revels have been a summer highlight these last few years.
If I may ask, are you debating 6 drive/2 lift or 4 drive/4 lift or some other arrangement? I have 6 motors on my drive, 2 motors on my lift for cones, and 2 motors on my lift for mobile goals personally.
Normally I would be fine with 4 motors running a high speed gear ratio on a robot, but this year I feel better with 6 because of the weight of my robot and the mobile goal with cones.
I’m actually trying to run a high speed 1:7 2-motor DR4B lift. I haven’t tested it but I got it neutrally buoyant with elastics, so it should be fine given that the only variation in weight is one cone.
