Change Up Flywheel V2

Pros and Cons

  • Pros:

  • The rubber bands wrapped around the wheel allow the ball to be launched farther than our previous design

  • Only one torque motor (100 rpm) is being used to allow more motors for other components

  • The tray power unit has a 10:1 gear ratio which launches the ball to great distances

  • A high strength axle is used to prevent the axle form twisting when the motor abruptly comes to a stop.

  • Cons:

  • It takes a really long tome for the flywheel to reach its max speed
