I am making a functional model friction crane. I am in the design and material gathering phase right now, but I have a question about DC Motors and how they would behave in a certain situation. I plan on having a DC motor spinning a shaft with a clutch on it. When the clutch is engaged, their would be a considerable considerable load added to the motor, in the direction it is already spinning. How would the motor react? Would it maintain its RPM, or would it speed up? This is how I plan on booming the crane down, and hoisting the cable down. I will have brakes on the crane as well, but I don't know how they will be implemented as of yet. I will post more details as I have them, but would love an answer to this question ASAP!
