When it comes to building your own robotics or RC vehicles, motors are one of the primary components you need for even the simplest electronics projects. DC motors are able to spin and move other parts within your project, defying natural forces like gravity. These useful tools offer a wide range of different applications relating to motion, torque, rotation and a few other use cases.

This Brushed DC Hobby Motor features 3V to 6V and a speed of 8000 RPM and is a standard motor to fit your needs. With these affordable small motors available, Makers often keep a handy stock of these small DC Motors for experiments or quick fun prototype builds. These fantastic little motors are used in hundreds of different applications, many of which involve RC vehicles and exciting robotics projects.

Motors are amazing tools that can be used for an incredibly diverse range of applications, with this small Brushed DC Motor particularly good for hobbyist use cases. Offering a relatively wide voltage range of 3V to 6V DC, this motor can easily be used in conjunction with 3.3V and 5V Arduino Boards and other Dev’ Platforms without having to worry about stepping the voltage up or down to match the motor.

As such, this motor can even be moved from project to project as you see fit, and you could even choose to make a snap-fit connector so that you can “unplug” the motor from a device like a small fan, and plug it directly into another device like a DIY magnetic coffee stirrer without having to worry about complex connections. Alternatively, especially since the cost of these Motors are very affordable and hobbyist-friendly, you can simply get a brand new motor for each application you need it for, possibly even using two motors simultaneously with gearing whenever the project requires extra power.
