The Need For Speed. Battlebots



I like the flipperbots a lot! I've 2 originals of them and i'm going to print a few more with different colors and shapes. But... i want a little more speed, maybe we should change the rotation servo's with high rotation motors and the motorcontrollerboard? Any idea's? tnx.

I would try to find higher rpm servos with the same measurements, though that might be hard to do. The motor controller idea will require some enginuity to figure out how to mount them.

The larger the wheel in diameter, the faster the bot will go. You might have to adjust some other things, but this is probably the easiest way to get more speed.

You would loose some strength and might get pushed around by some other bots though. It would be worth a try to see if it works out for you.
