Paula 3 Motor Recommendations

(1/3) > >>

Pauli:

Hi,


I am about to start building a Ro-Marin (Robbe) Paula 3 and wondered if any one could recommend a suitable motor.


The kit came without a motor but the instructions suggest fitting a Krick Max Power 600 motor. I have been unable to find a vendor for this motor in the UK and the shipping fees incurred from sourcing one from Germany are prohibitively expensive.


The motor will be driving a 35 mm, 30 mm pitch, brass prop rather than the plastic prop supplied with the kit.


I am looking for a motor that will provide a longer running time rather than speed when coupled to a suitable battery.


Any help appreciated.



Kind regards,
Pauli

 One of these should be good ....

Pauli:
Hi Martin,


Thanks for your prompt reply.


Yes, Component Shop have quite an extensive range of motors and from experience they provide really excellent customer service.


Are you able to suggest a specific motor from their range that would meet my requirements?




Kind regards,
Pauli

Netleyned:
The ones Martin showed are both ok.
Depending on the voltage of the battery.
6v 540, 12v 555
That would be my choice.

Hi Ned,


Thanks for your reply.


When I originally looked at Martin's reply, I clicked on the link to Component Shops website (motor section) which pretty much resolved to their entire range - my mistake.


I should have clicked on the image that Martin had attached showing the four motors. As I will likely be powering it from a 6v battery the 540 DC motor without mount seems a good choice as confirmed by yourself. The motor is described as being "Noise Attenuated" I wonder how much quieter it is compared to a standard motor?


Anyway, thanks Martin and Ned, unless anyone else has an alternative suggestion then I will probably opt for the 540 DC motor (6-12v) Noise Attenuated.



Kind regards,
Pauli
