We’re trying to form a design around the DR4B, TankDrive, Moho Lift, and Side roller in this video
Due to their speed they must have a 4 motor Drive, and Mogo Lifts have 2 motors, The DR4B has 4 and the 4 Bar lift connected to the top of their lift has 2 motors, so that’s 12 motors, So where the heck is the motor for the side roller coming from?
the robot I’m currently building will have 6 motors on the drive, 4 motors on the mogo intake, 2 motor chainbar, 1 motor single bar on top of the chainbar, 1 motor cone intake, 1 motor to change the angle of the intake and one motor for an undecided purpose. No, there wasn’t a typo and yes it’s VRC legal, if you don’t know how, look around on the forums.
Woah where are you getting these numbers. Check the manual please.
<R11> Robots may use either:
Option 1: Up to ten (10) VEX EDR motors or VEX Servos (Any combination, up to ten) and a legal
VRC pneumatic system. (See <R18>)
Option 2: Up to twelve (12) VEX EDR motors or VEX Servos (Any combination, up to twelve) and no
pneumatic components, excluding pneumatic tubing.
Also, the power expander doesn’t add ports. You have to wire from the Cortex to the power expander. It allows you to supply more energy to the motors without drawing much from your main battery. 10 (original ports) - 4 (required for the power expander) + 4 (from the power expander) = 10. If you want more, add y-cables. Using I power expander, I recommend y-cables from the Cortex to the power expander so those two motor ports on the Cortex don’t have to carry currents to run four motors.
