Re: pic: How small can it get?

At first glance, I saw only one wheel and thought "boy that's a new one for the list of "interesting drive trains"." I now see the others.

Hot dang, Reis! This 100% qualifies as tote bot material. Also how fast does it go?

Re: pic: How small can it get?

methinks the H drive takes up room that should be housing the electronics/battery...because if you don't put the electronics/battery as low as possible, it won't stay upright very long!

How about the compete design, what does it look like? and how would it have done in Overdrive?

Re: pic: How small can it get?

You could get even smaller if you staggered the gearboxes. If the left side was in the front and the right was in the rear, you could make it even narrower. You would have to eliminate the H drive though.

Re: pic: How small can it get?

Looks familiar:
My 2-CIM version
As noted above, getting the battery down is a big deal with this small a drive base. If you want to put it inside, you're looking at 7" + 2 side modules. If you go down to 9mm belt and low profile shaft heads, you should be able to get to 12" wide.

If you aren't worried about the battery being on top, you may want to look at putting the slide wheel's motor inside, using a VP or CIM Sport or TB micro gearbox*.

Also, you can take an inch off the length at the motors end if you notch the top of the end sheet to allow clearance for the motor. If you look carefully, you can see this in the underside view from my version. I expect you can get to 14.8", possibly 14.3" with a low CoG battery- any shorter, you won't be able to get the battery in or out.

* [Edit] If you really want to get short with a planetary, figure out how to mount the wheel to the planetary housing (ring gear) and lock the normal output shaft (planetary carrier) down.

They can get it narrower while keeping the H-drive by only having one motor (staggered) in each gearbox. This thing is going to weight less than 40 lbs anyway, having 4 NEOs motors in the primary drivetrain is overkill to begin with. One per side, offset so the gearboxes can be wedged even closer together.

Leave room to fit this electronics module from 2342 in the middle, and you can keep it FRC legal
