Team Headbangers
« on: April 24, 2017, 02:13:55 am »
After competing in the Barn Battles sumo with a half-assed Beetleweight, I'm going to take a crack at making a Mantisweight. Since this is my first "big" robot, it's just going to be a 2 wheel drive version of my old wedge ant Bob Saget. While I have the design in mind, what's really important for me is what components I want to use.

What are the most commonly used ESCs for Mantisweights and what drive motors and drive wheels are essential for pushing/wedginess?

I'm running a pair of 1000 RPM motors off of a pair of BaneBots 12-45 controllers on 4S to 2.25" wheels.  They've been rock solid every year. If you're building a pusher, 4x 1000 RPM would probably be good enough.  Botbitz 30A esc's are about the same weight as the 12-45's and readily available.

landshark used some gearboxes kyle found on ebay, but i haven't found another source of those. shame too, those gearboxes were really powerful.

you can check this thread for some alternatives kyle suggested but to my knowledge haven't been tested:

a pair of robot power wasps should do the trick and are pretty small/light.

 You are way ahead of me! I haven't even finished the design work yet on my bot. Sounds a little rough though...

Yeah, I gotta add more screws to lock up the clutch more. I was having issues with the gear box earlier and it took a few times to get the gears working again.
