What do I have to do to get a decoder to work with a coreless motor?
Thanks much,

From what I know, you need a decoder that is marked "super sonic".  I don't know if all manufacturers use the same terminology, but that's Digitrax's.

edit:  I guess the generic term is "High Frequency" which is called "Supersonic, Silent Running and Quite Drive by the various manufacturers.  I found that here.
