How DC motors work

Here is a video from Matthias Wandel where he gives a practical description of how a direct current motor works. He does this in a nice practical way by dismantling a battery drill and explaining how the different parts of the motor works.

Here is my video about the cheap motors you can get on ebay, you might see something you’d find useful for your project there.

You can get some of the motors through ebay, there are links on out site here. I think the N20 motors are particularly good because they are low powered, small but still powerful.
I’ve ordered some more cheap motors to test out and also some stepper motors so those will be in a couple of review videos in a few weeks.
