I’m looking for some advice for my team’s one wheel power cell shooter.
Right now the shooter is being directly driven off of two CIM style NEO motors on opposite sides of the hood; however, after reviewing some threads I realized that the setup we have will dramatically decrease the life of our precious motors because the flywheels (I use the term “flywheels” loosely because it is just two 6" traction wheels) were only being supported by the bearings inside the NEO!!
We are now looking at adding bearings in the side of our hood as well as making (a) custom gearbox(es) utilizing the side of the hood as one side of the gearbox.
The question is, is there any benefit to a dual input gearbox on one side of our hood, or two single input gearboxes on both sides of our hood?
Thank you for your time!!
