    Has anyone had any experience ordering motors or other electronics from China on ebay? These are strictly for prototypes. As an example, these motors.

    They have good feedback on ebay so I assume they should be ok. Any help is very appreciated.

    As with any mechanical system you get what you pay for. The cost to ship these motors is nearly 75% of cost of the motors as result if you have issues with the motors you will be hard pressed to return them for refund.

    If you are looking for a low cost solution they may be a good deal, but it can be problematic if you need to replace them.

    What would comparable motors cost you from other sources?
