I’m a mentor for a MATE Ranger robotics team. Our team is considering using the M100 motors next year, but they are marked as “End of Life”. Are you planning a replacement motor with similar capabilities?
Last year was their first year and they exceeded all their expectations and were able to advance to the International Tournament. They were using converted bilge pumps as motors for their thrusters, but they were much slower than the other ROVs. This year they want to use more efficient brushless motors. They have searched on-line and have found various motors that claim to be waterproof, and chose the M100’s based on your experience with MATE, other teams success using your motor/thrusters and your waterproof testing. They want to make their own propellers, mounts, shrouds and nozzles, so they just want a good reliable motor, but we don’t want to start using something that we cannot get replacement parts for. Are you planning a similar standalone waterproof motor to replace the M100?
