Featherweight Planetary Gearmotor

(1 customer review)


Please read our Feather Drive Kit Build Guide for how to use. Well suited for featherweight robots both two and four wheel drive configs – these are new motors pre-removed from drills with plenty of torque and an all metal 24:1 planetary gearbox. These are rated for 18V and are well suited for running 3, 4 or 5S lipos.
– 3/8 UNF thread output shaft – our feather wheels screw straight on
– includes M5 20mm reverse thread shaft screw for holding wheels on
– includes Four M5 8mm 14.9 grade grub screws for locking the clutch – see guide

We’ve made custom HDPE mounts for easily attaching these motors to a baseplate.

    Used two of these on a new featherweight robot, and they’re easy to install and use. Ran on 3S and surprised how well they ran and how robust they are. Had a few heavy landings and the motors are unbothered. It’s nice to get all the correct reverse thread screws as well. I would definitely recommend these to someone looking for a simple yet robust drive motor.
