Once again thanks for all the responses.
What’s the ground clearance? Think you could get it up to 3/4"? With a robot that light, 775’s on the drive should be 100% fine.
It is currently 1/4", I might have been to crazy
I would be worried that it could launch itself. (G09)
Have to get ready for that flying game
Why didn’t you use 775 pros instead of Cims? I know they’re not great if you’re stalling them but it seems like they’d manage ok in this application.
Build it using FTC-sized motors for steering the swerve modules, 775’s for powering the wheels and an FTC battery (or two) mounted low down. It might be necessary to limit the voltage to the 775’s so they don’t burn up but with a low power to weight ratio, the drive wheels might just spin.
As for all why not use 775 pro or FTC batteries questions. I did this mostly for fun and if you wanted to slap a 775 pro on here it would be quick design changes or a CIMile. As for the FTC batteries I wanted to use full FRC electronics and the battery was one of the biggest challenges.
Each alliance has a power cube bot that starts in their opponent’s cube pyramid (middle of the base 3 cubes). Playing the Lv3 Force power up activates your alliance’s cube bot, which one of your technicians can control from their seat. Robots cannot manipulate this cube bot.
Have one of the Technicians on each alliance drive one with covers the same color as their bumpers. If the opposing alliance’s powered cube is scored in your vault, it is worth 3 regular cubes (or 6 or 9). If you climb with your opponent’s powered cube, the points for that climb is doubled.
A lot of people have also said why not use this for off season events as extras. Doing some quick guesstimation if you want to run swerve with FRC electronics that will run you $3,000 to $4,000 per power cube with electronics (Rio, PDP, VRM, NavX, Motor Controllers, Battery) being most of the price.
Now there might be a very slight chance I get to build this, or a singular module in Preseason. There is still a low chance because of my teams fear of swiveling drives due to my teams pneumatic turning crab drive from 2010.
If you have any other ideas or questions feel free to respond.
