Turning Point Launcher Prototype


#1

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.


#2

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


#3

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


#4

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.


#5

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.
