Most builders use the Pittman motors to drive the dome and many Pittmans
have failed.
Here's a alternative dome motor that has not let me down yet.

The motor is much smaller, But don't let it's size fool you.
This is the little motor that could.

What is the model number of your dome motor?

I've been out of R2 mode for a while and I'm getting ready to start working on him again.  I'm going to purchase this motor for the dome.  Do I need to get the motor speed controller and wiring kit from this site as well?

If you are looking to do the Padawan setup that Dan has been working on, you can get the motor controllers from the same place that has the PS2 adapter -

And, as timing has it, they should be having a sale near the end of this month.
