Does anyone have a clue what this motor might be? It came out of a hobbico voodoo. Tim

might be a big N20, or something like a speed 180 size. can you get a pic of the motor measured with the ruler? if you get its exact size, its weight, and its resistance, you could probably find a suitable match or replacement. it'll probably take some trial and error though.

Looks like the tail motor from a Eflite Blade CP pro heli.

Nick it is exactly 0.750 long, I have not weighed it nor checked resistance. It has about 10 minutes on it. It has 2 rectifiers(?) on the back instead of one. And a plastic cap on the back. I'm feeling confident that it is a 1.5-6v motor. I'm hanging a pair of them on a homebuilt plane in conjuction with a 2s250mah lipo and the micro gear out of my failed cox p-51. Here are pic's of the build so far, Tim.

I'm wondering if this is a johnson 250 motor, but I think the length is to short. Tim

The last pic is what I took the motors out of. Tim

looks to me like a 130 motor that is what ships with the cox warbirds. It's definitely not the 180 motor from the tail of the heli as it is quite a bit longer.

Packy, it is smaller than the cox warbird motor. I'm using the gear from my cox p-51 on the build, including the lipo. Tim

looks like a brushed 250 can. I have a 180 which is the same, but a little longer. They are about $5-8. motors.. You can get them at any radio shack, or electronics store. As far as a name, I dunno. They are lil 6V motors.

Helibuff, I thought it might be a 250, I was just hoping to confirm that. Tim

Well, Just from looking at the picture, Looks like a 250. They run great, cheap, and get them anywhere. Now you can run far over 6V through it you want to bump it up. I 11.1V in mine and it's fine... As cheap as they are, if you nuke one,. so what... they cost as much as a Del Taco meal.
