I need the robot to move at 20 rpm
but my motor is overated at a no load speed of 150 rpm
I'm glad my post spurred some discussion.
I had thought of the idea of using motors and chain drive, but think that this might do the trick, only thing that kind of bothered me or concerned me was the motors look pretty close to the ground.Any help or ideas would be appreciated. So I guess maybe it is time to look for some electric wheelchair motors, any out there know of any that are better then others. I have been in a wheelchair for 29 years. but am a T-5 para, and never used a electric chair.Jeff
Old topic, but I'm still working on it. If only my powers of observation were as keen as yours, I would have seen this problem during the design phase. But alas, I had to get it stuck in the mulch beds before I saw this. The photo below shows my new motor mounting orientation with my new 10" wheels. The ground clearance is much better. I will have a "yard test" in a few weeks.I got these motors new on ebay.
