Recommend Stepper Motor + Wheels

Planning on building a robot and wanted advice on the best motors to purchase.


  • Have the torque to move a 6kg robot
  • Be consistent enough that it is perfectly repeatable each time
  • Speed, my current stepper motors are only able to achieve 100rpm and remain consistent while under weight.
    – So would be nice for maybe 200rpm while under load
  • Only 2 wheels with rollers placed in the middle.


Hi Jakob,

It might be worth going down the Makeblock pathway for this project, checkout the Ultimate kit which has plenty of elbow room to explore all sorts of robotics projects:
