    Hi everyone.

    I am going for an OSW build with Mige motor, Simucube and IONI board.
    I know there has been a lot of talk because of the Simucube 2 launch and possible Simucube 1 end of life but I guess it is still more than enough for me.

    So... i am getting to order the Mige motor but I've seen so many model numbers and talk about a big and small Mige...
    What would be the exact model for a small Mige with the best possible resolution/encoder (I guess Biss-C?)

    Is it the 130ST-M15015?

    Thanks!

    Hi buddy.
    The MiGE 130ST-M15015 is the large motor.
    The MiGE 130ST-M10010 is the small motor.
    I have the large motor, it is extremely powerful and i usually run it at 50% power. It is also really heavy at 17kg.
    I have the the 10000 ppr encoder on it that it came with but have thought of upgrading to the bliss-c encoder as it is a fairly simple £100 upgrade for me but it always seems to be out of stock or discontinued. If you manage to find somewhere that has them then hit me up as im still looking.
    I think you may be right as to the simucube 1 end of life buddy

    Thanks.
    I think the small is enough for me :)
    I haven't seen any bliss-c encoder for sale :(

    I am ordering soon my Mige motor directly from Mige. Do you want me to order an extra Biss-c encoder?
