Hello everyone. As my personal project for a while now, I have been doing extensive research on BB-8 and finally have compiled & bought most of the necessary parts to get started.
The main mechanism to drive BB-8 forward is via a single BAG motor @ 240:1 reduction driving a belt and pulley system to a pair of Miter Swivel gears. This spins the axle rod either forward or back. The other mechanics aren’t too important for my question in this thread.
I am working on a completely custom controller using an arduino nano hooked up to an HC-05 with Adafruit’s joystick modules to control the motors with various buttons & switches for lighting effects and such.
My question is this: Can I connect a versplanetary VEX encoder to a Roboclaw 2x30 without much hinderance?
The reason why I am not asking on the BB-8 Builders Club forums is because any product related to FRC is better to be asked by you guys.
