So if I remember right, I was the first one to publish a NEO gearbox last year. With the excitement of the new brushless motors coming out, I decided to make a specialty Falcon gearbox. With the free speed of the Falcon being nearly 6400 RPM, it isn’t as ideal as the NEO was for fitting into a CIM gearbox. It’s still possible, just have to play with gearing a little more.
It’s currently geared 8:54 for a free speed of 16.5 Ft/s, or adjusted at 13.36 Ft/s on 4" wheels. I’m a little worried how the 8 tooth pinions are going to hold up with that much torque. I put another gear on partially for that reason, giving more contact area on the pinion to prevent stripping.
Besides having to mill the hub off one gearbox, and possibly add holes to bolt the gears together, there are only 3 parts that need to be manufactured, the two plates and the output shaft. Everything else is COTs. It is currently weighing in at 2.8 lbs according to SW, but I didn’t double check everything had the proper weight assigned.
