The best part of this is that it’s still in 95’s design language.

Love it!

Something similar:

No

switch those to Falcon 500’s and I think you’re on to something :joy:

yes, but they’re 3.5x more expensive than NEOs

Falcon 500s are only 1.2x the price of a NEO+Spark MAX (Neo is $40, Spark max is $75. Falcon 500 has built in motor controller and totals out to $140)

Yeah but can you machine it from a solid block of aluminum

I’ve got only one question … Why

Oh gosh, I hadn’t put that into account. We do have like a dozen NEOs and Spark MAXs already so It would be logical to use those as much as we can.

Because I can and I’m 14. When have teenagers ever thought something through?

Can I ask why you don’t just make an H drive at this point?

I didn’t feel like it. Mine looks cooler

I love the bevel gears driving the mecanum wheels.

I had to. It wouldn’t easily fit.

I like that the Omni wheels are attached to a 2-speed gearbox whole the mecanum wheels are attached to single speed gearboxes.
