Recommended drive motors not available on eBay.

Postby Terryn » Tue Jun 16, 2020 10:41 pm

Hello Again

I picked the Z70 Locomotive and I printed the battery chassis but I cannot find the recommended drive motors on Ebay.

Does anyone know what motors I can use?

Is there an electronic kit available?

Is the Arduino ZIP file that downloaded with the rest of the file still ok to use?

I did find the motor driver board on Amazon but I am not sure on what Arduino to buy.

Thank you for such a great project.

My Grandson is going to love it.

Thanks for any advice.

Terry

Hi!

Search for 16mm or 22mm DC-motor with planetary gearbox. I would try something like this:
https://www.ebay.com/itm/DC-6V-12V-138R ... Swltpe0TBs

It will not be super fast, there is a slight reduction to the wheel shaft also but not that much. Don't pick a motor that is faster than 400-500rpm on the output shaft as it will be too weak.
