Tipping Point Power Arm V2

Pros and Cons

  • Pros:

  • We plan on using 1, 200 rpm motors with a torque gear ratio of 7:1 to provide ample power to lift the mobile goals as well as being fast

  • The grabber is long and can easily hold the mobile goals without slippage

  • Rubber Bands will provide additional power to lift the mobile goals

  • Makes sure that mobile goal is in the same spot for the intake to drop rings

  • Cons:

  • Due to the many rubber bands, the power arm may bounce up and down if the brake is not applied

We redesigned our power arm to grab the mobile goal a tilt and it is now easier to align with the mobile goals.
