Mini / Micro Gimbal Motors

For GoPro gimbals, or gimbals with cameras in the 70 g range, a huge number of suitable brushless gimbal motors had been available from, so to say, day one. But not so for smaller gimbals with cameras in the 45 g range, such as the Mobius, Foxeer Legend, or Runcam. Luckily, the situation has changed dramatically in the last year, and now quite a number of motors in the 180x size-range have become available. This page gives a (potentially incomplete) list. Included are also some motors in the 220x and 260x size-range, which may be chosen for the yaw axis in 3-axis gimbal constructions.

Whenever motors of different brand appear to be identical or to be very similar they are collected together. If not mentioned otherwise, the specs are taken from the data sheets.

Update: Unfortunately, several options have been discontinued in the meantime.

Walkera WK-WS-22-001(A/B)

This motor comes in different versions such as different cable lengths and colors, and a walkera-like confusing range of product numbers. Otherwise it seems to be always the same motor.

I could identify these different versions and product numbers:

    Hi Olli,

    Great stuff, thanks for the list of motors.

    Have you looked/tested this walkera motor?

    Walkera G-2D Gimbal Part G-2D-Z-03(M) 130MM Brushless Motor
    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/WALKERA-G-2D-BRUSHLESS-GIMBAL-BRUSHLESS-MOTOR-WK-WS-22-001-G-2D-Z-03-M-E3X1-/172142271874?_trksid=p2141725.m3641.l6368

    It’s the motor used on EagleEI gimbal
