    I'm reading a lot on engines and I read more and more confused ...
    I saw this and it seems to me with excellent features.
    What do you think of this engine?

    Do you have a safe motor to recommend for 3DOF with characteristics 12v / 24v - about 300w - 40/60 rpm?
    Thank you.

    My Motion Simulator:
    2DOF, SCN5
    Hello Fabio. Of those engines I can not help you much, although at first my idea was to mount something similar to what you propose, I got an offer on ebay of a few new engines SCN5 and the truth is that I am delighted, both for ease of mechanical assembly and electric, as smoothness of operation and reliability. Let's see if someone can help you better ...

    Greetings and luck.



    Hola Fabio. De esos motores no te puedo ayudar mucho, aunque en un principio mi idea era montar algo parecido a lo que propones, me salió una oferta en ebay de unos motores seminuevos SCN5 y la verdad es que estoy encantado, tanto por facilidad de montaje mecánico y eléctrico, como suavidad de funcionamiento y fiabilidad. A ver si alguien te puede ayudar mejor...

    Un saludo y suerte.

    Thanks Cover4x4, but I prefer geared motors, not actuators.

    Hi guys,
    I found this scheme that seems to fit perfectly with my project.
    I modified the characteristics of some components.
    The engine is still being chosen, waiting for the price, if OK I choose TRANSTECNO 300 / 350w 24v 3000rpm - final rpm 50
    - arduino UNO REV3
    - 2x32 sabertooth
    - 24v power supply - 1000W - 41A
    - FCP22E 10K potentiometer

    I would like to ask you experts if everything is ok?
    If something is not right, please indicate the right component.
    If everything is ok, I proceed with purchase ...
    Thank you.
    Hello
