Qwould it be easy to vary the speed of this motor?
AHi Poppy. Thank you for your question. You would need to vary the voltage. The motor is rated at 3V; at 1.5V the motor would be half the speed for example.

QCan i get an extended length axle for this motor?
AHi Michael. Thank you for your question. This might be possible – but would be a special order with all that that implies, MOQ lead time etc. There are shaft couplers such as 43-1050 and 2mm shafts 337-0350 which could be used to extend the shaft – but may not be appropriate for the intended application.

QCan this motor run in reverse also?
AHi Joe, yes this motor will go both ways depending on the polarity of the input.

Be careful with this motor if you intend to use two 1.5 volt batteries because they run down very very quickly about 30 minutes or less. You could try part number 37-0144 which rotates slower at 8,000rpm and draws 0.63 with a propeller fitted. The current drawn increases by about 400mA with prop fitted.
