Same way facing intake help

Hello

As the title reads, I would need some intake help on a v5 competitive robot. However, this isn’t any intake. The type I am going for is basically 1469A’s reveal just its a single intake facing the same way it fires. However, it looks like it needs to be larger than anticipated, and I only have a 4 wheel drive for it with a 1:1 gear ratio. It doesn’t look like there’s a way to make room for our flywheel. Any ideas? If there’s anything else in your opinion or some other idea, that would be great to share. Thanks!

Pictures of the robot usually help alot also 4wheel drive as in the frame? but it should be pretty feasable in a 18x18in square. you can also look at 4082bs robot since they have an extremely small robot that has a same side intake

If you are going to use a 90-degree flywheel I recommend 606x intake they have a video here

4082B style is nice, since it has a low profile and can fit in a smaller space. Ours was much bigger, and I would only recommend it if you are into a 90° flywheel.

If you build it like ours, it will most likely take up the full width of the robot (disc intake width + flywheel width + disc shooter width).
