Help- Brushed Motors Identification
« on: April 22, 2018, 04:20:48 PM »

Hi,

Found these two motors in an old hull, wondered if anyone knew what they were 6v or 12v and spec.

Cheers,

If they are the motors I am thinking of on 12 volt they are ESC killers, drawing horrendous currents. It would be worth a current check under a little load to check.
On 6 volts fine about 7-9000 rpm.

Looks like a typical 540/550 can motor as fitted to Club 500 boats.

38mm dia @ shaft end, 35.75mm dia @ brushes end, 65mm length (mounting face to backplate)
6v to 12v - don't have the current ratings but runs OK with 7.2v NiMh racepack !
same markings on backplate : "PAT PEND" and a Johnson logo

Will sort out a photos if you need them.

Yep, don't run them on 12v unless you are clever like me ( 14.4v but through reduction gearboxes, clever!! ), NOT NOT NOT 12v direct drive. 6v/7.2v on about 35mm props is fine though, just fast.


By the way...not 12v, don't care what the spec says, it's wrong...and I'm not..don't you miss Mr Milbourne??!

1/96? Go with a pair of MFAs RE540LN motors, about a tenner each. 6v to 9.6v.


1/72? Go with a pair of Jotikas CEM900T motors, about 28 each. 12v.
