A 775pro.

The 775pro is the most powerful motor allowed on a robot. It is slightly more powerful than the CIM, but weighs half as much and takes up a third as much space. However, this comes at a cost: They are air-cooled, with a fan attached to the motor shaft inside the housing. If they are stalled, or come close to stalling, they will overheat and become unusable within 2-3 seconds.


775pros can (and often should) be used in any application that requires more power than a BAG motor, as long as the load is not close to its stall torque. A good benchmark for this is 50% of stall torque. If the load will be going over this for more than a fraction of a second, a non-air-cooled motor should be used. But if this is the case, you probably did not have a large enough safety factor in your gear ratio calculations.

Comparison to CIMs

The 775pro is smaller and lighter than the CIM, and there has not been a limit on the number allowed in any FRC game to date. The main reasons to use a CIM over a 775pro are that CIMs are much more tolerant of stalling, and have 3x greater stall torque. As for the first reason, whenever possible you should choose a gear ratio and number of motors such that normal operating conditions are below 50% of stall torque - if this is not possible, a CIM will tolerate a stall much more robustly than a 775pro. As for the second, the stall torque of a CIM is 2.41 N m, vs. 0.7 N m for a 775pro. However, you can often just scale up the gear ratio to compensate - if this is not possible, a CIM is a better choice.

Comparison to Mini CIMs

The same as for CIMs, with the added fact that 775pros are 50% more powerful, although they still have half the stall torque of a Mini CIM. They should generally only be used when it is not possible to gear a 775pro to the desired speed or torque.

Comparison to BAG motors

Larger and heavier, but have higher stall torque and free speed. Use 775pros unless space or stalling are concerns.
