Turning Point Launcher Prototype


I was curious to see if a flywheel would work because the plastic balls don’t flex like NBN balls. The flywheel works very well.


Man you guys are quick to jump on these things. Looks good!


The flywheel looks good but those speeds will burn out the motors and drain the batteries.


Not necessarily, it is running 1:25 and best case scenario, the motors are set to torque. That should be able to hold itself fine as most teams that I know are running 1:25 HS 2 motors for their flywheel this year.


Battery expander exists for a reason for cortex systems. You can reduce the motor usage with a ratchet system.

V5 motors shouldn’t be an issue.
