12v DC motor/control

by johnmatros on Mon Aug 29, 2016 12:24 pm

Morning all,
was looking for a suggestion for a 12V DC low speed motor (90 degrees rotation forward and back) that can be used for simple prop animation. A basic jaw movement. However it is somewhat large and almost a pound in weight. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Sounds like an application for an RC servo. The exact torque requirements will depend on the weight distribution and acceleration requirements for the moving part.
