Did you actually use a throttle motor for your intake?

How well did it work?

We haven’t used throttle motors for intake mechanisms yet, but used them last year on our turrets. I like them, they’re not utilized by teams as well as they could be. If you have a 3d printer, you can print gears and a gearbox that the motor won’t break. They’re light, don’t mind stalling, and you can stick two on one speed controller.

In fact, if you stick two of them together, you have as much power available as a legal brushless motor!
