I'm doing some custom robitic camera track dolly builds for a client.... I have been going though motors from MicroMo trying to find the quitest ones...


Has any one ever open a Heden or M-One? I would love to know the brand of motors they are using, or even just part numbers..



Thanks for any feedback!

Keep in mind that wireless follow focus motors really arent working that hard. The same motor moving fast with a load on it for an extended period of time may be much louder.

That said I would also love to know part numbers for the motors and encoders they use.

Was recommended this guy for an unrelated project. (DIY motors on a 3d rig)




They are a bit pricy but they are definitely the right size and look the part.
