6 motors has become relatively common.

Saw a spike in 6 minicim drives this year likely based on the research done last summer. Likely will see spikes in 6 775 drives if off season robots like these and the COTS options continue to develop.

It probably doesn't matter much for this application, since this robot (if you're building it) won't see a ton of matches, and the arm is short, but I always get nervous about geared arms. I've seen them catastrophically break on partners before and I've seen them wear out and develop a ton of backlash over time.

When possible, I prefer to make the final stage of an arm chain+sprocket, but you've been at this longer than I have.

Make the robot out of a milk crate so that other robots can hold you when they climb.

If you need oversized 1/2" Hex, McMaster 6061 is oversized.

Yeah I thought those cims were part of the drive as well as the 775's so I was thinking it was a 10motor setup

We powdercoated VEX Pro hex shaft this year and got a snug fit on our gears to eliminate backlash. It's worth consideration if it's a resource that's readily available to you. We just told our sponsor to do the thinnest layer possible.

Pretty sure those are bag motors not Cims but I could be wrong.

Great Work. I've been working on a similar (but smaller) version of this type of robot but lacked the motivation to finish the design. This post has given me some motivation to keep working.

Super cool robot. If it ever gets built, I'd be interested to see how well it shoots! I showed this to my team and now they want to build a swerve-drive scale shooter robot

Wow that looks really cool. I would love to see it in real life. Nice work.

Cool robot. You may want to consider either having a camera or some sort of tall object on the robot so you can see where you are while there is no line of sight to the robot. I noticed a few teams with very small robots struggling to be effective on the far side of the field this year.

There are lots of spots on the field where you can't see totes, i can't imagine it'd be easy to drive a robot that's barely bigger than a tote on this field
