    Personally, I think the method you suggested would work as per the CAD diagram you posted You'd want a multi-stage spur gearbox to make it work rather than a planetary if horiztonal space is an issue.

    Will confess, plenty of trepidation when fightiing them but I've yet to see someone go mad with a MW/HW spinner unless talked about before the fight. If my robot breaks, well I didn't build it right....

    Kind of. Once the axe gear and motor is mounted in the robot with the ESC, I'll be happier with it. Still would really like to see it move more than a metre or so. :P

    I use one of the Pololu motors in Shu! for the lifting arm but they are indeed heavy. Two with appropriate cam gears shouldn't eat that much into the weight allowance though.

    The odd thing, I find, is that I can't get the gearbox on their own. I guess it's probably more economic to simply get the whole assembly premade than it is to have the parts shipped in separately....
