I need some help with figuring out the maximum payload for a robot I’m designing.
I'm looking in to using either the Wild thumper 4wd (https://www.robotshop.com/letsmakerobots/node/14156) or the Rover 5 4 motor version (https://www.robotshop.com/letsmakerobots/node/23331)
Both of the data sheets for these robots provide the gear ratio and stalling torque for each motor is it possible using these values to calculate the maximum payload I could use on these platforms?
Rover 5 has a stalling torque of 10Kg/cm and a gear ratio of 86.8:1
Wild thumper has a stalling torque of 4Kg/cm and a gear ratio of 35:1 (or at least the version I’m looking at does)
