  • Banebots RS-550 Motor 19300rpm 12V 70.55oz-in
    Very happy with motor!!!
    Review by Richard
    I replaced a couple of HPI GT 550's with this motor and could not be more pleased thus far. I was only getting about 1-2 weeks use out of the HPI's before losing a brush holder. These have already outlasted the HPI GT 550's by twice as long and still going!!

  • Neato Wheel Motor
    it is great ! fixed my neato
    Review by sharon
    Instead of buying a new Neato, this motor fixed the problem "left wheel stuck", which puzzled me for a long time. Very happy about the purchase. Just the shipping fee is a bit pricey, compared with the price of the part itself. LOL.

    Review by Richard de Angleterre
    Does what it says on the can. The new replacement part dropped in fairly easily and has worked since (for about a week now).

Robot Operating Time & Efficiency

Posted on March 09, 2012

By Coleman Benson & filled under Industry.

Have you wondered why some robots can run much longer than others, or why UAVs can only hover for a few minutes? The battery pack you choose is certainly important, but there are many additional factors which have a huge influence on the total time your robot operates between charges.

Basics: What is a Motor Controller?

Posted on February 20, 2012

By Coleman Benson & filled under Where to Start.

A Motor Controller is a device that acts as intermediary between your robot’s microcontroller, batteries and motors. A motor controller is necessary because a microcontroller can usually only provide roughly 0.1 Amps of current whereas most actuators (DC motors, DC gear motors, servo motors etc.) require several Amps. The current a motor consumes is related to [...]

The Sabertooth is for brushed DC motors. The Cytron DC motor controller is as well, and is compatible with the BotBoarduino. Note that you will need a cable connector.

Hello,

For a robotic project I am looking for micro motors with gear box and encoder. I have been looking into the web and I have found plenty of such motors from maxon, citizen, micromo, etc., but they are extremely expensive.

Do you know of more affordable motors?

Thanks,
Reza
