I am working on my Omnibot 2000 and am thinking out of simplicity swapping out the original gearbox with these 12V 200 Reversible High Torque Worm Geared DC Motors. They look similar to the DS9180 Torque Alloy 12V/24V/ 110kg-180kg/cm Servos that is discussed on another thread, however not equipped with the servo control board.
Soliciting advice from those active on this forum who have converted their Omnibots to the EZ-B; would these gearbox motors be effective and efficient at moving the omnibot around? I realize there are many parameters to consider.
I would adapt the existing drive wheels and there would be about 8 to 10 pounds of added weight to the robot considering batteries, Mini ITX motherboard, EZ-B, sesors, added servos, etc.
The motors are Size: 80x32x40mm and have 6mm diameter shafts.
