 Post subject: help to choose a motor
hi, i want to buy a motor for a war robot i'm going to use it in a rotatory weapon y have seen that a good speed for a weapon is like 10,000 rpm but also it has to have something of torque because the weapon is like 600 grams so what motor did you recomend for me? and should i buy a geared box?

Hi,

What category of battlebot are you planning to build ?

Normally a brushless motor will be used for this type of application:

Keep in mind that making a spinner weapon is one of the more complex and dangerous types of weapon to make. If you are just starting out, we suggest building simpler weapons first like flippers for example.

If you still decide to make a spinning weapon we do not suggest using a geared down motor as it probably won't be turning fast enough.
