Looks really heavy. What sort of weight is it?

Ya unfortunately there pretty heavy, about 15lb a piece :frowning:

I love it heavy or not, a cheesed version would be really cool

Ours were 20 a piece at one point…

I designed a similar gearbox with a high/low and a drive/climb shifter! I just need to come up with a brake like you have. How do you stop the gear? I see the pneumatic piston, but what is on the end of it?

I’ll be posting pics/vids of it soon, but all it is is a small piece of rack on a sliding block, the key is to software assist it so your not jamming it into the gear ruining the teeth. Also the piston needs minimal pressure (<5psi) so its possible to use the spring loaded pistons, or possible even a servo ( gonna try that one out sometime soon ).
