Great Planes Planetary gearbox

Hello
Did anybody used this planetary gearbox?
Really it will last 600W power?
Any experience?

Hi,

Price seem a little low compared to the old multiplex or knotronic drives. So the box might be a little on the cheap side. For 40 dollars it might be worth the experiment.

Good luck,

Teo
