More of the same. Constantly working on the dome drive only to have it completely fail. Now I think it's the motor because my advanced designs are actually pretty nice. But the motor starts spazzing out after a few minutes. The wires heat up, the motor struggles and pretty soon it's jerking. What really clued me in is I removed the spring and started applying pressure manually from the dome drive to press on the lazy susan. When the motor started spazzing out, I let off on the pressure and the motor still acted weird. And the speed controller is hot enough to give you third degree burns (This I know from experience).
The drive uses a 12 volt TRICO windshield washer motor and a SYREN 10 speed controller with a powerful 12 volt battery. It's coming through a spectrum DX6 transmitter with the BR6000 receiver.
I don't know what to say. But that's it for sure and I won't be working on another dome drive design for awhile. I wasted wayyyyy too much time on this. It was kind of fun in a way but it also was very frustrating. I think now I'll check out Calvin's new "little motor that could".
