As we enter into our third week of the 2019 Build Season we have started building our mechanisms and initiated our pneumatics system. All sub-teams are busy, some preparing presentations and a business plan and others working on coding and then the mechanical team working on the various mechanisms.
Today we swapped out our old CIM for the new brushless motors. The REV NEO Brushless Motor is the first brushless motor designed to meet the unique demands of the FRC community. NEO offers an incredible power density due to its compact size and reduced weight. Designed to have similar performance characteristics and matching mounting features, NEO can be a drop-in replacement for CIM-style motors.
