LOL, before I try to answer, I have a few questions.

What do you want to do with the motor?
Drive or Weapon? If weapon, what kind?
What class of battlebot? (120lb, 15lb, 12lb. 3lb. etc?)
Are you looking for one with a gearbox attached (i.e.gearmotor), or just the motor?
Do you have an ESC or battery setup in mind already?
Do you know any requirements on voltage, speed, torque, or size?
Brushed or Brushless?

OTOH, if you are just asking to get a conversation started, I have been impressed with video of the Scorpion HK-2221-6-v2 running in some toy helicopters. It seems to simply toss those things around like crazy. For a small 'bot, it could do some interesting things (4400kv, over 500 watts and only 22mm tall) But so far I can't get 'em to do what I want because I cant find a current-limiting speed controller, and the LiPo batteries deliver so much current that the darn things are turning to smoke! Of course, I'm not using it in a heli. Smile

You gotta be more specific. What kind of weapon? Weight? Diameter? How are you going to drive it.


At least when i am design a bot, its always best to get down what you wanna use a weapon first. Their are motors everywhere to suit any weapon. Its the weapon you gotta figure out first.

as for drive. How many wheels? How big are the wheels?


You cannot expect to give us the info that you have a 12 pound bot, and need motors. We can list up to 100 different kinds easily. Unless you specify, then you have 100 motors to look at.. Don't think you wanna do that now do ya? Wink

The best advice I can give you is to decide what kind of robot you want to build, and read this:
