You’d like to know what gear ratio you should use to spin a flywheel at a given operating speed with a given motor at a given %throttle.

For example, you want to spin your flywheel at 2500 rpm at 65% throttle using a 775 Pro motor. What gear ratio should you use?

You will need to know the power efficiency of your gearbox plus any chains or belts, and the approximate mechanical power it takes at the flywheel to spin it at the desired speed.

AWK code and example spreadsheet show how.
