    Hello,
    did anyone use / test motors like this ?
    https://www.alibaba.com/product-detail/130ZYTRV063-24v-700w-dc-gear-motor_60215803195.html

    I ant to build something like this :
    https://www.xsimulator.net/communit...evelopment-with-brushless-motor-arduino.7978/

    Are there negatives things i dont think about this with DC Motors ?
    2 Car batteries are no Problem, and cheap and you can use it 2 hours ...after this Charge .... simple , cheap ?
    to good to be real ?

    Consider the weight of that design, DC motors are not strong enough without some type of help (large springs, ect) to give heave (all motors lifting at the same time). AC motors are usually used in this type of rig.

    Yes, i see this, and they use 350 Watts Motors , so i think
    ( i am not really lightweight :) ) with 800 Watts i can use double weights ...

    That link is dead, doesn't work for anyone. You might send a private message to the original poster.

    Looks nice :) do you have Pictures from under the platform ?
    I think when 350 W DC are working at simukit, 800W should do,
    because its much easier, with 2 car batteries, and also much much cheaper ?
    Wonder that no one tests this, Motors with enought power DV 24V , 800 W inkl (worm) gearbox i can buy for 260 Bucks.
    inkl tax and shipping so 1000,- + 2 Batterys = 1100 , and you have double power than a simukit ( which i love, but for me to less power )
