While we know this unique season may mean that many teams are not following their usual pattern of stocking up in preparation for Kickoff, we still want to help you make informed decisions by letting you know what actuator controllers, MXP boards, and motors will be legal this season. We have one new legal motor to add to the list this year. All other legal devices remain the same as the lists found in R27, R29, and R69-C of the 2020 INFINITE RECHARGE Game and Season Manual.
REV Robotics HD Hex Motor
The HD Hex Motor from REV Robotics is a low power 550 style motor with an integrated encoder that is also legal in FIRST Tech Challenge. You can learn more about this motor on the product page for the HD Hex Motor or the Ultraplanetary gearbox.
We know its not as exciting as a new NEO but we are happy to help bridge the gap between FTC and FRC. While the HD Hex motor is low power when compared to the NEO550, there are still plenty of good uses for them in FRC.
We are also releasing this product, which will help even more teams bring the UltraPlanetary into the FRC ecosystem.
