I received the double motor gearboxes and I have to agree with Will they look very good.
At 80p each and weighing in at 7 gms they are very good value.
They are a little fast but with small nano wheels the should be nippy yet controlable.

Cheapest place (that I've found so far..) to buy servos to get servo boards out of to run the drive units; less than £1 each. Seeing as the drive units come in bulk, thought I should probably dig out a bulk source of something to drive them :L

can people please post what motors they are currently using as I need to find some light, but faster than my currant ones, (used in small and smaller) to power a 2nd Nano, a edf flea and other updates to my team. :)

I use http://www.aliexpress.com/item/20PCS-Mi ... 23748.html in Nullity and my fleaweight Chug. Plenty of both power and speed, though if you're running an EDF you may want some extra external gearing to get some more torque.

Hi.
Does anyone have any of the dual motor/gearbox units for sale, or know of another source for them at the moment?
Thanks.

The Nanoweight drive units that Pete posted have been discontinued by that seller, however after some slightly frantic searching I was able to find another supplier, albeit for a slightly higher price: http://www.aliexpress.com/item/high-qua ... 77027.html

Both those drive motor types have been used in nanos before. While they work, their power to weight ratio is pretty poor, and they are far too slow without modifying the gearboxes.

Came across these recently: http://www.banggood.com/Tarot-MT1104-40 ... 46204.html

There are quite a few tiny brushless around, but these are the first I've seen with sensible mounting holes. Could be good for a nano spinner or brushless ant drive. Not too expensive compared to some others either.
