Great motor

The motor itself is pretty straightforward and works out of the box. Just apply power and ground. The one complaint I do have is that the mounting holes on the top are blatantly not well threaded. I'm sure the standard use-case is to mount them with that circumference clamp, so that works great. But if you plan to mount them from the top side, then beware that it's not likely to be straightforward. That being said, I laser cut a piece to fit over it and was able to jerry-rig something. All in all, I'm pretty happy!
