  • Cytron 12V 12RPM 166oz-in Spur Gearmotor
    Excellent product for mdoel building with Meccano!
    Review by Peter
    Small size and significant torque make this DC motor ideal for a cross-section of applications such as cranes and vehicle models constructed with the Meccano / Metullas system. Being able to purchase same in Canada is a big plus for me!

  • 7.2VDC 291RPM 11oz-in GHM-03 Spur Gear Head Motor
    Works perfectly
    Review by Pascal
    Powerfull for small robot.
    The pins in the back are very.. very strong.

  • 65mm Blue Wheel and DC Motor (Pair)
    Well. They're wheels...
    Review by Ross
    I bought these wheels about a month ago and they work as intended. They're straight and the motors are strong enough.

    Luckily, the axle fitment was a bit snug: they didn't come with screws. That is my only beef with the set: seems the manufacturer was saving a buck by not providing some M3 screws.

  • Pololu 12V, 100:1 Gear Motor w/Encoder
    Decent motor, pay attention to encoder
    Review by Gump
    It's a powerful motor. Operation is smooth. Excellent for my application. However, be sure not to touch the encoder during operation, as it will stall the motor immediately. Even though the following actually applies to the related hub, it is a shame that imperial sizes are used for mounting something onto the hub.

Robot Construction Kits

Posted on April 23, 2014

By Coleman Benson & filled under GoRobotics >> Education, Robotics Projects & Kits, Where to Start.

Robot Construction Kits can be distinguished from normal robot kits since they use modular parts and allow you to assemble different robots using the same parts. A robot kit on the other hand only allows you to build one robot. Robot construction kits are a great investment because they tend to include everything you need [...]

All Sciences Lead to Robotics

Posted on March 12, 2013

By Mario Tremblay & filled under Industry.

Ever since the stories of Isaac Asimov, robotics had long been restricted to the imagination. Although it had been unclear in the past, the present state of technology shows that robotics has become a tangible reality. The evolution of robotics follows the same course that was once followed by the evolution of the PC and computers. [...]

Drive Motor Sizing Tool

Posted on March 07, 2013

By RB1 & filled under Dynamic Tools.

The Drive Motor Sizing Tool is intended to give an idea of the type of drive motor required for your specific robot by taking known values and calculating values required when searching for a motor. DC motors are generally used for continuous rotation drive systems, though can be used for partial (angle to angle) rotation [...]
