Prop Job— Electronic FIGET

This is a simple homemade electric motor that is running on energy stored in a super capacitor. I have to flick the rotor with my finger to get it started. It reminds me of an old model airplane gas engine so I named it the ‘Prop Job’.
Here is the little Cox .049 engine I grew up fiddling with on duel line control model airplanes.
Here is Slider2732’s excellent replication of this project using a real prop as the rotor.
