Remember ball drive, the TechnoKats’ drive base in 2003? Our team has been working on developing a new ball drive for use in FTC for the past few months, and we’re pretty proud of the end product. This one features only three motors and uses four custom-made rubber balls unlike the previous half omni wheel, half bowling ball configuration. Ball drive seems to be more suited to FTC because of our small motor limit and lack of reliable swerve drives.
