I bout this for a RC mini battle bot my daughter wants to make. When it arrived it was up and running with in an hour ( would have been less but I was teaching my 11 year old ) she was able to follow the instruction in the website with out issue and was driving the motors like a champ. My only complaint is the wine it has but it can only be heard when the top cover is off so not a deal breaker.



I think we will go for the larger version on the next bot build.

I used this with the RB-JON-01 tank tread and beetle motors to make a small rc tank (http://www.gregkelley.org/blog/?p=139). My only complaint was the sonic whining. The jrk motor controllers don't have this problem, but they're the same price for only a single motor controller. Other than the whine, this motor controller is really impressive. Failsafe works very well, and instructions for calibrating inputs are clear. THIS IS NOT PLUG AND PLAY. You must calibrate at least channel 1. And if you want to power your receiver with the 5 volt output, it will not supply enough current to run servos off your receiver. The configuration utility for windows is easy to use. This board seems fairly robust, and the cheapest PWM dual motor controller with tank mixing for a small robot.
