        Comments about RadioShack 1.5 to 3VDC Hobby Motor:

        I combined this product with an motor shield with Arduino it has worked very well with the rover that I built. But, I had to double up the gear boxes in order to have to rover move up hill. But, it is cost-effective and a generally helpful general-use motor.

        Pros

        • Cheap enough 2B lowpriced

        Cons

        • Not a workhorse

        Best Uses

        • I can't imagine

        Comments about RadioShack 1.5 to 3VDC Hobby Motor:

        Not much torque with these lil dudes. I'd mount the motor on a board with the shaft sticking up, put an umbrella into a cocktail straw, stick the straw on the shaft, and press go! You get what you pay for and [$] ain't much. This could be a great little doo dad to put into a Rube Goldberg device. If you want power, you'll have to web search for "high torque" "small motor"

            This Motor is great for use of models, whether it be for making propellers spin on a Titanic sized model ship or powering a small 1/87th scale switcher engine, all that is needed is a 470 ohm resistor for Model RR use!
