  • 7.2VDC 291RPM 11oz-in GHM-03 Spur Gear Head Motor
    Ignore previous review.
    Review by Sasan
    I meant to review GHM-13 not GHM-03.

    The GHM-03 are not good for Rover in Tanking situations. Recommend GHM-13 for Rover over what is normally shipped with Rover.

  • 7.2VDC 291RPM 11oz-in GHM-03 Spur Gear Head Motor
    Worked as exepected with higher torque
    Review by Sasan
    Rover had trouble tanking with motors with lesser torque. These motors with 50:1 gear ration and higher torque achieved Tanking while other motors failed. Recommend these motors instead of what is sold with Rover. RPM not that important compared to stall performance and tanking.

  • Tamiya Twin-Motor Gear Box
    Works as promised
    Review by Vincent
    I'm using this gear set for a robot heating duct crawler I made to video inspect my ducts. Using it with RB-Tam-26 Tamiya narrow tire set, although I hack sawed down the wheel shafts by 1/2" to give the crawler a narrower profile.

    The gear box and be re-assembled, if you are unhappy with the initial gear ratio. There are 3 configurations, but only 2 different gear ratios.

    The only con, is the motors run at 3V. Keep this in mind if you are trying to hit a specific speed. But at this low voltage, you get more current loses. Otherwise, would have given it 5 stars.

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 [...]
