Solarbotics RM2 (high-power motor for GM2/3/8/9)

Need more power out of your gear motor? This is a high-power brushed DC motor that fits in the same form factor as used by the GM2/3/8/9 style gear motors.

This high-power brushed DC motor fits in the GM2/3/8/9 series of gear motors, offering approximately 3 times the speed, twice the torque and quadruple the power-draw! Retrofitting the gear motor is easy – just remove the motor retainer strap, transfer the pinion gear, and reinstall – that’s it!


NOTE: Be forewarned – we’re not kidding about the increase in power requirements and output! This motor eats batteries quickly, and it has a relatively short lifetime at high voltages. For example, in our tests, this motor was able to run continuously at 6 V for approximately five hours before failing.
