it is a good gear motor and your sales team is great!! The other 2 motor came broken as well on the top part where you solder the wires to. I like it so I had to rig my wires another way onto it. I want to order a couple more at different RPM speed, but hesitant about the one end. Maybe you have an answer not sure. I also wanted a Rheostat/Pot. to go with this motor for control and your team did a nice job helping, but was the wrong one. Other than that I will continue to use sparkfun and recommend to others no worries, just wish we could get stable connectors on the gear motor box. I had to throw 2 away because it locked up on me as well, and only used for about 10min. Thank you
Thanks for the feedback. I’ve used these in a lot of robotics applications and have really enjoyed using them myself. On a rare occasion I have had some lock up on me too. If you have issues with your parts, please feel free to contact us. We’ll do what we can to help!
