O.k. I forgot to post the pic, can someone tell me if this would work in a geared setup it is pretty small from the other CD-rom motors I have pulled apart... But this one fits perfect in a 300C gearbox, even the holes line up... you can read most of my dim on the paper next to it...
Yeap, this motor will work in a geared setup. I am using a motor with very similar spec's. You can look at my previous post for details of my motor (post = "CD rom gear drive and ducted fan"). One difficulty maybe the pinion gear, mine needed to be drilled out to a 3mm press fit. If you have a lathe it's easy, otherwise you can try a drillpress and a vise.

The only change I made since I posted the spec's, is to change the magnets to the 5x5x1 N45's.... I highly recommend the change. I have been flying my gear motor in a Slow stick, it works great.

hope this helps,
Wayne
