the motor mounts, you will notice
the motor mounts have tapped holes
on all sides. Pick one of the two long
sides and line up the tapped holes
with the 1/16 inch holes on the
Using the 1/16 Allen wrench and
two 440 screws, screw them through
the guide holes on the titanium plate
into the tapped holes on the motor
mount. Repeat this process on the
other side of the robot, so both motors are mounted to the titanium plate.
STEP 6: MOUNTING
Take the Finger Tech hubs and
glue them to the lite flite tires. Start by
running a line of glue down the
length of the Fingertech hub, and
slide a lite flite wheel over the shaft of
the hub. Repeat this process on both
Slide both assembled wheels over
the drive shafts of your robot. Line the
set screw of the hub to the flat on the
drive shaft. Warning: If this step is
skipped, your wheels will fall off! Use
the .05 inch Allen wrench to tighten
the set screw in the hub.
SOLDERING THE ELECTRONICS TOGETHER
STEP 7: STRIPPING THE WIRES
Tin all six leads. To tin each lead, get the soldering iron to full temperature.
It usually takes about 10 minutes on most irons.
Heat the wire with the iron while placing the solder on the other side of
the wire. If the wires are not taking the solder, apply a little bit of solder to the
iron. After tinning all six leads, we will now join the three black leads together.
