MFA 385 5 Pole Motor | Mysite

MFA, Carbon brushed 6 - 15v 385 5 pole motor, perfect for 16mm electric engines.

There are many motors out there we can use for 16mm, but not all are good for our use. Some are too big, some too weak, some have no brushes and not good for ESC's, some draw too much current, some run too fast, some run too slow, even on 24V !!

We have found the 385 sized motors geared at 13:1 or 25:1 run on 12v (12v best for scale speed), are just about perfect for 16mm modelling. But, don't be fooled, not all 385 motors are the same. MFA make just about the best you can buy, and we have not found anything better for the price ! These MFA 385 motors are the, 'real deal'. They have a very low amp consumption, loads of low end power, do not over rev, small size can, carbon brushes, large bronze bushes and produce very little RF noise. In short, their perfect, and if you want huge power, fit two !!!!

Voltage on can says 6-15, but can be run well below 6volts.

We also offer 13:1 gear sets in brass and steel that fit this 2.3mm motor shaft and 3/16" wheel axle.
