I'm new to this forum and hope that someone might be able to give me some advice on a project I am currently making.
I am building a stage prop that I need to add a drive system to. It is a suitcase that needs to drive itself off stage (in a straight line)
The area I have in which i have to place the motor/gears and axle is 150mm by 50mm.
The wheels can be max diameter of 50mm
Overall weight of completed unit could be 6kg max
This is a prop that will have a lot of use so it needs to be as strong as possible.
The questions I have are:
What is a safe axle diameter for the weight
Where is a good place to get aluminium with rubber tread wheels 50mm diameter (heavy-duty)
What is the best motor/gear system for the project 6V (compact strong/cost effective)
Any help or advice is much appreciated.
