Great motor, be careful of solder tabs.

I ordered these for a prototype project. The motors themselves work really well and are responsive and strong. However, the solder tabs are very flimsy and both of both of the motors I ordered have broken off.

This could be user-error, as I soldered the only wire I had on hand (Sparkfun's HookUp Wire - 22 AWG) and I believe the weight of the wire (about 2in in length) eventually bent and snapped the solder tabs off.

Just a bit disappointing because now my prototype is on hold until I can source some different motors with wires already attached/soldered.

If you buy these, I would recommend using a much thinner wire or perhaps solder 90 degree breakaway headers onto the tabs for a bit more structural integrity.
