We use these motors as drive motors for our Mecha Knights kids drive robots. They are pretty weak in power but they last for hours on a 3000mAh battery. With the 3000:1 gear reduction you'd need 2.5 to 3 seconds for travel of a 90 degree angle. They are not the worst motors and gears in the world, b...

But you'd need someone in the US or Canada to buy it for you, unless it is more than 200 USD worth.
