DescriptionThis RC mixer is designed for three wheeled omni-directional robots. It mixes three input RC channels: x, y, and spin to generate the appropriate signals for motors controlling three omni-directional wheels mounted 120 degrees from each other.
- 3 wheel omni-directional mixing with translation and rotation input
- Failsafe on signal loss
- No need for line boosters when used with IFI speed controllers
One of our customers built a very competitive combat robot using the OMX-3. You can see a video of it in action on YouTube in this video of Skittlebrau vs Sir Nuts and Bolts. Really cool stuff!
Here are some good sources for omni-wheels!
