FingerTech "Silver Spark" 16mm Gearmotor
• Extra-long 3mm shaft for mounting wheels directly with the option to use a bearing block for support on the wheel's far side.
• All-metal spur gearhead mated to a Mabuchi FK-050 motor.
• Pick a Gear ratio: The higher the ratio the faster your bot will go but you will loose torque
• Weight between 28 - 32grams (0.99 - 1.13oz).
These motors make it super simple to get a robot moving! Just pick up a pair of Snap Wheels and Snap Hubs to mount them, solder on a pair of tinyESCs and your motors are ready to be driven by radio control! For mounting the motors, use 2-56 screws and our custom motor mounts. We now also carry 3mm bearing blocks for supporting the shaft in heavy robots or weapon systems, and Flat Motor Mounts for when you want to face-mount in a panel.
Note - For strenuous conditions (such as robot combat), we recommend removing the gearbox and ensuring that the motor vent hole does not line up with a gearbox pin. If it does, simply rotate the gearbox 180 degrees and reattach. Use Loctite on the screws that hold the gearbox to the motor. This will ensure they cannot separate during competition!
