I was using very old Chrosziel FOX.
The receiver died at last.
I have three FMG-6 motors.
Can these be used for something?
Bartech, Microforce etc…
Or should I throw them away into a trash box?

Thank you, it is good information.

There is little information about FMG-6.

Is there any company which repair FMG-6?

Hi Takahiro,

I tried to contact Spintec and Motion Dynamix Ltd (mentioned in the other thread, see link below) but didn't get any answer. Don't know if these companies are still up and working.

Here's the previous thread about FMG.6 motors; http://www.steadicam...showtopic=16725

Thank you Tuomas,

 

My motor is likely to work for the time being.

It will be used by Bartech.

If it doesn't or there is some chattering or something weird going on you can buy a spare part potentiometer (most likely a Sakae 10HP-10) from aliexpress and have it replaced by some skilled service technician in your area. But let's hope it's not necessary!

Those FMG .6 motors work great and will work with any analog system. Unfortunately it is difficult to find repairs for them, but I believe here on the forum there was some talk about someone repairing or looking to start repairing them. Don't know where though. If the Motors are working then they are still worth good money. Good luck

I took a look at one years ago and decided I couldn't do anything for it. I can't remember why this was though....
