Ok, I think my next project, which will be my first significant robot, will be a dual tank-tracked "heavy-weight" bot.·
I am custom building a full aluminum chasis, this bot will carry a 12V (small UPS battery) that might way in the area of 2-4lbs. Down the road, this might need a larger UPS battery, around the 10lb mark.·
Now, I need motors, and gearboxes that could move this.·
The tread will be custom, not sure what they will be made from yet.
Basicly, I dont know what I should use to move this.·
There is a dual motor/gearbox here http://www.robotstore.com/catalog/display.asp?pid=229·
that claims, when geared high can put out 941 torque g/cm at·
3 volts, (203:1 ratio).·
I have no idea if thats enough, or should I be looking for 1500+ g/cm?
